Born on Aug. 17, 1940, in Brooklyn, New York, to Jean and Lawrence Lieberman, he lived and worked for much of his life in the city, before moving to New Berlin, Pa.,in 2000 and founding MCPS of Central Penn-sylvania. Prior to coming to New Berlin, he had a very successful career as a piano entertainer. He served in the military and won the All-Army Entertainment Contest. After leaving the military, he appeared on TVs Ed Sullivan Show, and was widely sought-after, singing and playing the piano for nearly 50 years in the best nightclubs coast to coast and the Bahamas. He entertained for 14 straight months at New Yorks famous Copacabana, also at Fritzels Chicago, at the Hacienda in Las Vegas, at the Mark IV in San Francisco and dozens of others. After he came to Pennsylvania, he loved entertaining so much that he sang and played at local clubs like the Peppermint Lounge and the Front Street Station, using the stage name Arty Lee. At one of those performances, he met and later married Margaret Marie Smith, of New Berlin, who survives,alongwithstepdaughterKim Kazakavage.WCM4 March 2022 Woodalls Campground Magazine'
