Artie's memory will live on at Showman Fabricators. With many heavy hearts present, and after a bit of reflection from our VP on the man Artie was, his shirt was hung in in the shop as tribute. Artie was not just a co-worker, he was a dear friend to several. He will be missed dearly!

Sending lots of love up to New York from Louisville, KY. So very sorry for the loss of such a kind man. We loved having Brotherhood of the Jug Band Blues in Louisville.

We always loved seeing Arthur when he was out on the island with Marc and the family. With each visit we were able to pick up where we left off, as if no time passed. He will be missed by all who knew him. Please know that you are all in our prayers. Love, Paul, Patti, James and Andrew

Artie was such a warm and generous soul - you could sense that immediately upon meeting him. During the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy he arranged for me and our friend Jordy to get rides (in a minicooper!) to LIC for work everyday. He was the only Santa Clause (Artie Clause) who ever held my little girl. I loved watching him play and loved watching him listen to AVO. He is missed dearly and I am grateful that our paths crossed on this earth.

We loved Artie's personaliy, his soul. His stories were always interesting to listen to and we enjoyed walking with him to the Jalopy when The Brotherhood of The Jug Band rocked out there. He always welcomed us into his home and made us laugh when we hung out. Man, may God have him tooting his jug in the afterlife and let him know he is loved.

Rest in peace, Artie. I wish I could be there in person to say goodbye. You were always willing to help and to share your knowledge with me, and I am so appreciative of your kindness. I know that your music and Santa appearances brought joy to so many. You will be missed.

Goodbye Artie We've been hanging out, jamming etc off and on since i moved to NYC in 2007. We lived a block away from each other in greenpoint and then we both moved to Queens at the same time. You've been a steady loyal pal from the very start. You were just telling me that you'd come up for a visit this summer only days ago. You have one of the hugest hearts i've ever known, felt. Good bye Jug Man, i can't believe that we won't see you again but i'll try to carry your personality with me wherever I go.

My cousin Arthur’s passing was on St Anthony’s Day so I know he is with our Grandpa Tony and they are telling stories, eating good food and listening to music together. All I know is there’s some really good party going on up in Heaven right now that we may all have the privilege of attending one day. You are dearly loved and greatly missed. RIP ????

Artie Your warmth and great heart made strangers into family, and reminded everyone who you ever met of our purpose all to give joy to each other with no desire for reward. You beamed that joy and I will miss you and how I will carry this burden of not being closer to you.

The first thing I remember about meeting Artie..... was that he ate a live frog on a dare at a Showman BBQ picnic. I was on a date and didn't know anybody.... I was like "I can't believe that guy ate a live frog....." 7 years later he started playing jug with our band the Brooklyn Jugs, then Banjorama, then Brotherhood, and most recently in the UnAmericana Jug Band. He was a big guy and he's leaving such a huge hole in our community/family. Never gonna forget him.
