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.

I am so very sorry to hear that Arthur has passed. Though I knew him as a professor at SUNY New Paltz, I also knew him through his very good friend Barry Bort. We spent so much time together from 1989 on. He was totally adorable with the son Barry and I had. Totally goofy, making us all laugh and being his brilliant self. I hope he and Barry are telling incredible stories, doing their routines and performing for everyone.
