SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Springfield’s Oak Grove Cemetery became home to the Titanic Historical Societies’ Centennial Memorial Garden and walkway.
The memorial garden, just inside the Bay Street cemetery’s main entrance, honors the memory of those who lost their lives aboard the luxury liner 102 years ago.
“One of the passengers is buried here in Springfield, Clyde long and the fact that our president founder of the titanic historical society Ed Kamuda, died this past April,” said Paul Phaneuf.
“Ed would be thrilled this was his last big project that Paul Phaneuf, myself and Ed began and he’d be pleased I know he’s here in spirit,” said Karen Kamuda.
The Kamudas founded the Titanic Historical Society and opened the Titanic Museum in Indian Orchard 51 years ago.
