BEVERLY - Arthur E. Lederman, 72, beloved husband of Sara A. Lederman passed away unexpectedly at his home on Monday, November 20, 2017.

Arthur possessed a magnetic way of communicating with people. He disliked emails and texting. He felt it was too impersonal. Language, wit and brilliance, and the great ability for joke telling personified him. He brought joy to all who knew him, and he will be missed by so many friends far and near.

In addition to his wife Sara with whom he shared 35 years of marriage, Arthur is survived by his step-daughter Shellie Walsh of Beverly.
