Canisius College is mourning the loss of Golden Griffin Battalion Cadet Kevin W. Breen, who died in a car accident on Sunday morning. From Merrick, NY, Cadet Breen was a University at Buffalo student and resident assistant (RA).  He was 20 years old.  A memorial service will be held on Thursday, March 22 at 6:45 p.m. in the college’s Christ the King Chapel.

Golden Griffin Battalion Cadets Breen and Ian Richardson ’12 were in a one car accident in the State College area of Pennsylvania, returning from a Pershing Rifle National Competition in Baltimore. Cadet Richardson, a Canisius student and passenger in the vehicle, was treated for minor injuries.

“Kevin’s energetic spirit and positive outlook on life made him a brother to everyone,” said fellow cadet Bryan Halicki ’12.  “He will be dearly missed by those who knew him.”
