Maurice G. “Marty” Martineau, a U.S. Secret Service agent from 1941 to 1972, who coordinated security at the 1968 Democratic Convention and testified before Congress on the Kennedy Assassination, has died at age 95, the Chicago Tribune reported on Sunday.

During his 31-year career, Martineau protected every president from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Lyndon B. Johnson, the paper reported.

He died Oct. 8, 2009 in Winfield, Ill.

The Michigan State University grad became a Secret Service agent in 1941, the paper reported. He worked in a number of field offices including Detroit, Grand Rapids, Milwaukee and Kansas City.

The Tribune reported that he was the assistant special agent in charge of the Chicago Field Office from 1963 to 1969 and coordinated security at the 1968 Democratic National Convention.

He also testified before the House Select Committee on Assassinations as part of the Warren Commission probing into the JFK assassination, the Tribune said.

He retired in 1972.
