Vic Costanzo, retired hospital administrator at Harrington Memorial Hospital in Southbridge, Mass., for 18 years and at A. R. Gould Memorial Hospital in Presque Isle, Maine, before moving west to Yarmouth, Mass., in 1974, died at the Cape Cod Hospital Extended Care Community Pavilion on Mar. 7, 2000.
During WWII Vic served in medical services in the Army. He then earned his master's in hospital administration and taught that subject for four years at St. Louis U. in Missouri. His first job in Massachusetts was as assistant hospital administrator at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge. Years later, as he was contemplating retirement, he wrote to a classmate, "I don't think that anyone who continues to administer the running of a hospital could remotely be considered retired." But he did retire in 1974.
His wife, Irene Paquette Costanzo, whom he married in 1959, survives, as do a brother, Louis, and several nieces and nephews. To them we offer our sincere sympathies.
