Roger B. Mack, former hospital administrative officer, passed away on Apr. 13 from complications of multiple system atrophy. He was 76 years old.

He worked in the Clinical Center for 34 years, first in the inhalation therapy section of the anesthesiology department and later as chief of what is now called respiratory therapy.

In the early 1980s, Mack left clinical care for administration. He retired in April 2000 as a hospital administrative officer.

Mack was on the cardiac arrest team, where he assisted in saving the life of Fred Loveless, a statistical clerk in the Safety and Fire Prevention Branch in 1972. Mack also was a member of the PHS Disaster Medical Assistance Team and was a principal designer of the first mock disaster evacuation drill held at the Clinical Center on Aug. 28, 1981.

Mack is survived by his wife Gay Mack and two daughters, Sylvia Mack and Jessica Mack, who works at NINDS.
