Christopher D. "Chris" Lieb

March 27, 1964 — January 19, 2024


Christopher D. "Chris" Lieb

59, passed away surrounded by his family on January 19, 2024. He was born on Friday, March 27, 1964, to Louis J. Lieb, Jr. and Yvonne D. Lieb originally from Ebensburg, PA. Chris moved to Jamestown, RI in 2008 before moving to the Jepson Lane Group Home in Middletown, RI in 2011.

Chris was known for his quiet, sweet demeanor, his crooked, sly smile, and his fluttering eyelashes. He was a passionate musician in his youth, often found dancing, singing, or playing drums for family and friends. In his formative years, he was quite an athlete playing basketball in the driveway with friends, participating in the PA Special Olympics, or running as fast as he could to jump into the neighbor’s pool.

He made many friends at Bridges Day Program and created beautiful artwork at the Out of the Box Gallery workshop when he lived here in Jamestown. Later, when he moved to Middletown, he also attended the Maher Center’s Bristol, RI Workshop for many happy years.

He is the cherished brother of Mary Jo Roberts-Braisted (Lieb), Jamestown, RI, and Polly Conner (Lieb) of Herndon, VA. He was the favorite Brother- in-Law to Robert Braisted, Chris Conner, and Carol Lieb (Michael), beloved Uncle to Justin, Michelle, Sarah, Emily, Elliot, Maddie and Joe and their families. He is preceded in death by his father, Louis (Herky) Lieb, brother Michael J. Lieb, and nephew Samuel C. Conner.

We are forever grateful for Barbara Wordell and the incredible, loving staff/family at the James L. Maher Center's Jepson Lane group home. They have taken such loving and amazing care of Chris for so many years. We would also like to acknowledge the wonderful nurses and staff at Hope Health Hospice who have taken such great care of him for almost 2 years.

He will be dearly missed and forever remembered for the love, laughter, and smiles he brought to those who had the pleasure of knowing him.

There will be a Mass of Christian Burial on Tuesday, February 6th at St. Mark Church, Jamestown, RI at 10:00 am.  A funeral Mass will be held later this spring in his hometown of Ebensburg, PA.

In Lieu of Flowers, please consider donations in his memory to Hope Health Hospice, or The James L Maher Center - so they can continue to support families as, they did ours. We couldn’t have done it without them.
