Our Heritage
The roots of the Bear Creek Insurance Agency start in the 1940’s when Light’s Insurance Agency was started by Paul Light. The agency has been and continues to be a family owned and operated business. Paul Light’s daughter Linda and her husband Richard Geiger owned the agency until Richard’s retirement from the insurance agency. With Richard’s, retirement in 2003 from Light’s Insurance Agency their son Michael chose to make a career change and purchased Light’s Insurance Agency with his partner, Robert Van Zee.

On January 1, 2010, Michael and Robert purchased Patriot Insurance in Brooklyn and the name changed to Bear Creek Insurance Agency. Bear Creek seeks to continue and expand the values of the Light’s Insurance Agency to a greater reach and serve more clients with quality and choice that an independent agency offers.

Michael Geiger is now the sole owner after Robert retired in 2016.  The agency is managed by Ashley Krebill of Brooklyn along with her strong team of Agents Deb Read & Sue Johnson. Over the past few years the agency has continued to grow leaps and bounds in the Insurance Industry and look towards a bright future!
