Arthur Harvey Lieberman

Mr. Arthur (Artie) Harvey Lieberman, son of the late Irving and Mary Lieberman, passed away on May 14, 2019 at the age of 69 in the loving company of his family in Charlotte, N.C. He was the father of son Joshua Lieberman, daughter Marissa Lieberman Rabb, father-in-law to Christopher Rabb, and grandfather to Madison Rabb.

Born in Bronx, NY, he was a skilled member of many orchestras throughout his lifetime, including the Charlotte Civic Orchestra. He devoted himself to sharing his passion for music with others. Artie was also known for his remarkable work ethic, quick wit and love for his family.

He departed this life at Carolinas Medical Center - Main, under the exceptional care of many Dixon Heart ICU nurses and Sanger Heart and Vascular Institute physicians. Even in his last moments, he was cracking jokes, scheduling time to go to the symphony and arranging dates with his nurses. He was determined to leave this earth with those around him smiling and laughing.

A memorial service will be held at 12 p.m. on Monday, May 20, 2019 at Temple Beth El. Burial was held in New York on Friday.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Charlotte Civic Orchestra in his honor.

Artie was a beloved friend thru many years playing together in the Civic Orchestra. Just one of those guys you could really warm up to. Such a twinkle in his eyes! I got to talk to him when he was in the hospital by a fortuitous phone call. He sounded upbeat at that time. So very sorry to hear then that he had passed away. My heart has an empty spot now. Much love and sympathy to Josh and Marissa.

Arthur was my friend and we met in Charlotte in mid 2017. We found that we had some common friends in Poughkeepsie back in NY from the 1970’s. Its a small world but he made it nicer one for me. He was unique!

We will greatly miss Artie as he was a great man and shared his love
of music, especially percussion.

As my husband was Principal Percussionist of the Charlotte Symphony for
many, many years, he sometimes needed information about a particular
percussion instrument or a repair to one of his own percussion instruments.
Artie ALWAYS had the information or knew where he could locate a rental
Instrument for an upcoming concert.

Artie was a true gentleman, and owned a personality of humor and
kindness. Our thoughts go out to the family as you face the days ahead
without Artie. He was a very special person to many people.

Mrs. Peyton Becton. (Connie)

I worked for Artie at Super Service during high school and first year of college. The memories made working with him, his family, Eddie, and Jewel have been some of the best.
Artie told me if I could work at a car wash, I could work anywhere. He was right.
He always watched out for me and we always ended up having a good time.
My sympathies to the family. Love each and every one of you and wish you the best and peace during this time.
Fair well my friend until we meet again on the other side. Casey

Artie Lieberman was a big man and that is not a fact about just his physical size. He came from humble beginnings then had an unending stream of big ideas he turned into big realities. To me, Artie was simply Mr. Percussion. While our relationship began playing together in the Charlotte Concert Band, it grew into a friendship that I will always remember. I will be telling stories about Mr. Percussion as long as I can.
