The Office actor Hugh Dane has died, according to a flyer shared on Facebook by the Los Angeles Inner City Cultural Center.
Dane, who’s best remembered as Dunder Mifflin’s security guard Hank, was 75. He died on May 16. His cause of death has not yet been revealed.
The Office creators compiled a video of Dane’s most iconic scenes on the TV show, which include his run-ins with Dwight Schrute, following the ridiculous orders of Michael Scott, and sitting at his post on the ground floor of the beloved Dunder Mifflin.
Dane’s co-stars from The Office took a moment to commemorate his life on Twitter.
“RIP Hugh Dane, aka Hank the security guard,” Rainn Wilson, who played Dwight Schrute, tweeted. “He was one of the greats. So kind, funny, talented. We will all miss him.”
Steve Carell (Michael Scott), Mindy Kaling (Kelly Kapoor), and Andy Buckley (David Wallace) also paid their respects on Twitter.
“Hugh Dane was one the funniest actors ever,” Kaling wrote. “I loved writing and acting with him.”

💕💕R.I.P. Hugh. “Hank the security guard” messing with everyone while picking what to do with the surplus is gold and my fave scene of that episode. https://t.co/gjkhFurLvm— WARIO LOPEZ (@SENDNUGGIES) June 5, 2018

RIP Hugh Dane. He was in some of my favorite shows. Unforgettable moments like the Fresh Prince pool hall episode (he played like 2-3 characters on that show. Ha) or his most famous role as Hank in The Office. pic.twitter.com/hA6Itbus7A— Sermon (@SermonsDomain) June 5, 2018
