Biography

Killy Kilmartin attended Bryant College where he played on the hockey team. He never played professionally but instead was with several amateur clubs in the Boston area. In addition to playing at the 1952 Olympics he was on the U.S. National team which competed at the 1947 and 1949 World Championships. He later became a salesman which led to the establishment of his own company, International Packaging, in Providence. In 1970, he was assaulted at a marina in Newport, apparently because a firecracker landed close to the attacker's daughter. Two days later, Kilmartin died of the injuries sustained in the attack.
