He was born February 19, 1915 in Cincinnati, Ohio to Harry Nicholas Buchman and Frances (Steppler) Buchman.

Arthur lived a full and very productive life. Art, as he was fondly referred to, made some very positive contributions to the betterment of society in his lifetime. After graduating from college at the University of Cincinnati, he enlisted in the U.S. Army during WWII, became a Lieutenant upon graduation from Officers Candidate School (OCS), in the Army Medical Corp. where he served his country and was honorably discharged at the end of the war. He then became a licensed mortician before working in the family automobile business for fifteen years. He began a new career with the U.S. Dept. of Labor as an investigator and worked his way up to regional supervisor and mentor for the Labor Department in South Eastern Michigan.

A long-standing member of NARFE, the Masons, Shrine and the Scottish Rite, Art retired in 1980 and moved to North Port, Fla. to be near his son. He and his wife, Marion enjoyed their home, gardening and their dog Tipper. He will be greatly missed by friends and family.

(Dalene) Buchman of Jerome, Idaho; two granddaughters, Livia Buchman and Lisa Buchman; and two great-grandchildren; nephews and nieces, Jimmy and Goldie Jobe of Englewood, Fla., and their mother, Thelma Jobe and Paul and Jean Buchman of Cincinnati, Ohio.
