Athur Duncan Obituary, Death – Another beloved member of our musical family has died away, which is really sad news. The 25th of September, 1925 marked Arthur Duncan’s birth, and he left this world on the 3rd of January, 2023. Not only is he beloved, appreciated, and acknowledged for his great performances on the Lawrence Welk program, but also for the many other accomplishments he has achieved over the course of his long and illustrious career.
Betty White was determined to have an African-American serve as a regular cast member on her show, The Betty White Show, which debuted in 1954. She was successful in overcoming opposition to the idea. As a direct consequence of this, Arthur broke new ground by being the first African-American to ever hold that position on a television variety show. In 1957, Arthur was a member of Bob Hope’s group that went on a tour of military bases, and he performed all over the world, including at such prominent locations as Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall.
One of the many honors that have been bestowed upon him is an honorary Doctor of Performing Arts in American Dance Degree, which was granted to him by Oklahoma City University in 2008. This honour is just one of many that he has won. At the Riverside Memorial Veterans Cemetery on January 25, at 1:15 p.m., there will be a military committal service held in honor of Arthur. During the entirety of World War II, Arthur served our country.
