From TCT Member Dawn Bastian:
I got the honor of paying my respects to a founding member of the Tin Can Tourist. Gaius M. Tremaine, Royal Vice Chief 1919-1920 & Royal Chief 1921-1922. He is quoted in The Washington Times, May 17, 1921 “I live in the open, I follow my little tin can whither it will, I’m as healthy as a horse; man, I ‘m right on the top shelf.
It’s a great life ” Gaius Trumaine is buried in the Forest Hill Cemetery, Fredonia, New York. The headstone was cleaned according to the Cemetery Conservators for United Standards and after my research show no close relatives, I was granted permission from the town and cemetery sexton to place a TCT brass plaque on his headstone. Gaius M. Trumaine, may you never be forgotten.
