An Army veteran of World War II, he was a paratrooper with the 101st Airborne Division and took part in the Battle of the Bulge. Mr. Hawk graduated from Lafayette College in Easton in 1950 with a B.S. degree in mathematics. "He was a really a wonderful guy" and was "a very good mathematics teacher," DVR Superintendent Martin Matula said Friday. "Art and Tap were very, very close," Matula said. "They had a lot of the same kinds of interests - they both loved the outdoors. . . . I remember at Tap's viewing last year, it was clear that it was a separation that affected Art very strongly." "In the past year, I've lost the three most important men in my life - Tap, Art and my father," said Jim Day, who teaches math at DVR and was star halfback on the 1960 state champions. "He and Tap were intertwined in my life,' Mr. Day said this week. "He was a positive influence on everyone he met. He gave his best, and he expected the best from people around him." Day said Art Hawk and Tap Webb complemented each other well. "They had a lot of common interests - mostly with the outdoors fishing and bird-watching and things like that - but they were two very different people," he said. "Tap was such an outgoing guy, telling jokes and all of that. Art was more the quiet type. . . . I don't think he ever wanted to be the head man, as such. He was very happy being Tap's assistant." Surviving are Mr. Hawk's wife of 53 years, the former Jacqueline Kline; two daughters, Janine Belsky of Bloomsbury and Suzanne Mannetta of New Village; a sister, Joyce Ashman of Branchburg, and five grandchildren.
