MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- Lawrence Edward Breen, 75, died at home in Mount Kisco on Wednesday, Jan. 28, from complications related to surgery.
Raised in Yonkers, Mr. Breen was the son of Catherine and John Breen. He attended Mount St. Michael High School in the Bronx, earned a bachelor's degree from SUNY Albany and a master's degree from New York University.
