Obituary of Stephen Michael Pusey
With deepest sorrow, we announce that Stephen Michael Pusey, 49, of Salisbury, our beloved husband, father, son, brother, family member and friend passed suddenly on Friday, February 22, 2019 at Peninsula Regional Medical Center. Born in Salisbury, he was the beloved son of Stephen W. Pusey and Barbara Atkinson Herman of Salisbury.
Michael graduated from Parkside High School in 1987 and went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Construction Management Technology and Sciences from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. He was a partner in the family business Terra Firma of Delmarva, where he worked in engineering and estimating.
He appreciated the written word, was intrigued by American history and enjoyed music and playing his Ovation guitar. He was fearlessly loyal and a lifelong friend to many. He was most deeply devoted to his wife Jenny and two daughters, Josephine and Erin, and spent all of his free time teaching them to be kind and decent human beings. Michael considered his proudest accomplishment to be fatherhood.
Stephen is survived by his parents Stephen W. Pusey and Barbara Atkinson Herman; his loving wife, Jenny; daughters Josephine "Josie" Hope and Erin Elizabeth; brother Christopher Pusey and his wife, Denise, of Ocean City; sister Amy Webster and her husband, David of Salisbury.
