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.

Getting to know Arthur was what graduate school should be about. Engaging, intelligent , animated, and encouraging both inside the classroom and out. (Oh, that office! ) I looked forward to seeing him around town, and I will always cherish his kind words and having had the honor to know such a rare spirit. New Paltz is the poorer for his having left us. My sincerest condolences to the family,
Carrie Landi
