Obituary: Thomas Clement Breslin (in San Francisco Chronicle on Thursday, February 16, 1995)A funeral will be held tomorrow for Thomas Breslin, a retired San Francisco general manager of street repair. Mr. Breslin died yesterday (2/15/1995) at age 105. He was born in Bellingham, Wash., and spent much of his youth working in the Arizona mining industry with his father. He enlisted in the American Expeditionary Force during World War I and was assigned to an engineering battalion because of his knowledge of mining explosives and underground construction. He was responsible for constructing a footbridge over the Meuse River in France, which was used by Marines as the war drew to a close. He continued in a construction career after the war, working at the Panama Canal and on the Los Angeles Aqueduct, the Hetch Hetchy project, the Twin Peaks tunnel and other well-known projects. He retired as San Francisco's general manager of street repair in 1960. Mr. Breslin is survived by his sons, James of San Francisco and Jack of Davis, and his daughter, Mary Kiner of San Francisco. A funeral Mass will be said at Most Holy Redeemer Church, 100 Diamond Street in San Francisco, at 10 a.m. tomorrow. Donations are requested for Hanna Boys Center.
