Arthur Selig Hack, 86, of New Paltz, NY, passed away Thursday, May 14, 2020. He was born March 6, 1934 in Brooklyn, NY, son of the late Harry and Gertrude Hack.

Arthur was an English Professor at SUNY New Paltz for almost 40 years and loved teaching at all levels. He was passionate about literature, philosophy, the metaphysical foundations of Einstein's theories, and loved to engage in vigorous discussions thereof. Arthur enjoyed making people laugh and had the ability to inject levity into almost any situation. Anybody who met him will undoubtedly remember his unique sense of humor.

Arthur is survived by his brother, Martin Hack of Queens, NY, children, Julie Hack Buckler of Woodstock, NY, Paul Hack of Portland, OR and grandchildren Emma, Sarah, and Samuel Buckler of Woodstock, NY.

Arrangements entrusted to Keyser Funeral & Cremation Service, Kingston, NY. A tribute for Arthur can be found at www.KeyserFuneralService.com, where you may leave memories and expressions of sympathy for his family.

T Tony Cinquemani on May 31, 2020

When Arthur Hack was recommended to the Department, the Director of English at Indiana University declared that Arthur was the most brilliant of any student he had ever known. He proved to be right. Moreover, Arthur was a natural comedian who made our English Department so much more pleasant (at least bearable) and often hilarious! We remember so many enjoyable conversations with him concerning our roots in the same neighborhood of Brooklyn, philosophy, Freud vs. Jung, , the Romantics, and music--especially Mendelssohn!
Rest In Peace, Arthur.
Our sincere sympathy and condolences to his family, Tony and Karen Cinquemani
