Grant Mitchell, the former assistant general counsel at the Department of Housing and Urban Development known throughout the industry as Mr. RESPA, died on Monday, Sept. 10. He was 76.

He was with HUD for 34 years, but as he recalled in an interview which appeared in the May 10, 1999 issue of National Mortgage News shortly after he left the agency, it was in 1984 when he got the task for which he said, “My life was never the same again.”
