Denis Brodeur, father to Martin and grandfather to Anthony, passed away yesterday. He was 82. [Fire and Ice] [Star-Ledger] Best known as a photographer for the Montreal Canadiens, the man also won an Olympic bronze medal as a Canadian goaltender in 1956, saw his son become the most successful goaltender in NHL history and saw his grandson drafted into the same franchise as his son. He lived a full life.
Condolences from all of us here to the Brodeur family.
