Per the instructions above, I understand that Find A Grave administrators would prefer that additional biographical data not be submitted with these updates; however, in the case of Arthur Laurents (famous for his work on West Side Story, among other theatre projects), I believe certain additional data is warranted because his ashes were interred next to those of his life partner, Tom Hatcher.

Unfortunately, there appears to be no memorial at all for Tom Hatcher as yet, and I did not feel comfortable creating one because I was unsure about the best way to handle. Mr. Laurents and Mr. Hatcher were together for more than 50 years, but Mr. Hatcher died before gay marriage became legal in New York. I trust that Find A Grave will find the most appropriate way to memorialize both men:

69401572 Arthur Laurents
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=69401572

Disposition of Remains: Cremated. Ashes were interred at the same site where those of his life partner of more than 50 years, Tom Hatcher (1929-2006), were buried - by a bench on Quogue, Long Island.

Source 1: "....Tom Hatcher was Laurents’ lover until his [Hatcher's] death in 2006. Their ashes are buried by a bench in Quogue, LI, where they had a beach house...."

Source 2: "....Tom Hatcher, Laurent's long-time partner died in October 2006. Hatcher had begun his career as an actor but moved into real estate.... He created the private park adjoining the house in Quogue, Long Island that was home for the couple."

Source 3: "Tom Hatcher, a onetime actor and longtime companion of the author, playwright, and director Arthur Laurents, died on Oct. 26.... Hatcher ... 77 ... began a successful career as a real estate developer, buying and renovating old houses in Manhattan and then Quogue.... It was there in 2005 that he and Laurents celebrated their 50th anniversary together...."

I am actually friends with a mortician in Wichita, Kansas. His mortuary handled the cremation. Is his word enough? I couldn't find it printed anywhere. I then remembered that I knew a mortician from Wichita days and reached out to him.
