Phillip Seidenberg, who friends remember for his “quick wit, ready smile, and contagious good will,” died on Aug. 28 at the house in Springs that he shared with his longtime companion, Gerald Golak. He was 75.
Mr. Seidenberg was “generous to a fault and always at the ready with a great joke or a helping hand,” friends wrote. His laugh was infectious and “his sense of the absurd was unmatched,” they said.
James Patrick Hastings, a retired executive with the Liberty Lines bus company who spent his summers in Springs, died in New York City on Sept. 10. He was 86 years old.
Mr. Hastings and his wife, the former Agnes Stack, ran successful textile businesses in New York for many years. He went on to become the executive officer for Liberty Lines, based in Yonkers, from which he retired.
