Death Calls George Trembley at Home on Tuesday May 20

Thon Book 9

George Alfred Trembley, prominently connected with newspaper and political circles here for several years, passed away at the family home in this city at 5 o'clock Tuesday evening, May 20, his demise due to a long-time affliction of pulmonary tuberculosis. The deceased had reached the age of 35 years, 3 months and 4 days.

Mr. Trembley is survived by his wife, Geraldine, and one son, Lou Ervin, of Lusk and his father, Lewis Trembley, who resides in the east.

Private funeral services were conducted from the chapel of the Peet mortuary at 3 o'clock this (Thursday) afternoon, May 22nd, Mrs. William Wilhermsdorfer of the Christian Science church of Harrison officiating in the last rites. Music during the chapel services was offered by Mrs. H. J. Templeton and Mrs. Abdon DeCastro, who sang a duet, "In the Garden." Mrs. Templeton later sang "None But the Lonely Heart."

Interment was made in the Lusk cemetery, casket bearers being Roscoe and Myron Kilmer, Wm. G. Watt, Earl Goldizer, Otto Krekeler and Benny Updike.

Mr. Trembley came to this city in the spring of 1936, entering newspaper work that year with a local publication, and continuing at this occupation until he went to Cheyenne in 1939 as assistant purchasing agent in the present Republican administration. He remained with this office for several months, later entering the state tuberculosis sanitarium at Basin for treatment. Remaining there but a short while, Trembley returned to Cheyenne, later coming back to this city where the family has since resided.

Trembley was born in New Bedford, Mass., on February 16, 1906, spending his earlier years there and later coming westward when the affliction he suffered became serious. He also had been an accountant in the automobile industry in Detroit.

At the time of his death, Trembley was writing a book, which, had it been completed and published, promised to be an expose of Wyoming state government under the present Republican administration. He had on several occasions told this writer of his plans and during the winter had made a trip to Hollywood, Calif., to obtain suggestions for preparing the story for screen presentation. Whether this book had reached a stage where it might yet be completed has not been learned.
