[Martin Breen]

My grandfather Martin Breen was killed in the fire. My mother was 4 years old at the time. Her name was Joan Houde (Breen). She passed away this past February. My grandfather was a bartender in the Melody Lounge according to my mother’s memory from back then. She told us that he was taken to Boston City Hospital alive but died soon after. I do have some pictures of him bartending at the grove I believe if you would be interested in those. I often wonder about what he was like and what he went through that night.
