Dunder Mifflin fans have lost a member of their TV family- Hugh Dane who famously played Hank the security guard on"The Office" has died

Hugh Dane, the actor who is best known for his role as Hank the Security Guard on The Office, has died.

After news broke of Hugh's death, some of his co-stars from The Office took to Twitter to mourn his passing.

The Inner City Cultural Center announced the news with a post on Facebook and has since gained the attention of several stars from The Office.

Dane also had roles on such iconic shows as Friends and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air during his career, which also saw him land minor parts in such films as Bridesmaids and Ricochet. So kind, funny, talented.

Steve Carell retweeted Wilson, adding, "What a terrific guy".

At this time, Dane's cause of death remains private.

It was the perhaps the most recognizable role for the veteran character actor. Hank's scenes were some of the low-key funniest ones to grace The Office, often coming at odds with Rainn Wilson's Dwight Schrute, although the role arguably peaked in the fifth season episode Crime Aid, with a stirring performance of Me & The Blues. He will certainly be missed by his co-stars and fans of The Office.

The actor will be honored at the Inner City Cultural Center June 9.

Kate Flannery, who played Meredith on The Office, posted a photo of Dane playing the guitar and wrote, "RIP Hugh Dane aka Hank the security guard at Dundee Mifflin from #theoffice Sending love to his family & close friends".
