HUDSON VALLEY, N.Y. -- Warren P. Reiss, a longtime resident of Rhinebeck, died Thursday, May 5. He was 61.

Born in New York Hospital, he attended the Barnard School for Boys in Riverdale and graduated from Hobart College. He received his law degree from Catholic University and joined the office of the Manhattan District Attorney as a prosecutor.

Later as an attorney at the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation in Albany, he went on to serve as General Counsel at Scenic Hudson. His work included many signatures including Hudson Valley environmental and conservation projects, ranging from the Hudson River PCB Cleanup and the defeat of a proposed cement plant in Greenport to developing Poets' Walk Park in Red Hook, NY.

He also served on the board of the Winnakee Land Trust, whose mission is protecting farmland and natural habitat in northern Dutchess County. He was a friend to many and also a mentor to a wide circle of former interns and younger colleagues.

He is survived by his daughters, Chelsea Reiss and Taylor Reiss Gouge and her husband Andrew; brother, Spencer; and caregiver Lauren Arcomano.

He was laid to rest at the Rhinebeck Cemetery on May 7.

Donations in Warren's memory can be made to The Winnakee Land Trust, 187 East Market Street, Rhinebeck NY 12572.
