More than half a century after he was buried, the long-forgotten Titanic survivor Eino Lindquist is receiving a grave marker.
On Saturday, a simple marker will be dedicated in a potter’s field at Tulocay Cemetery where the 66-year-old Lindquist was buried after he had a fatal stroke on Oct. 31, 1958.
The gravestone will be paid for by the cemetery’s board of directors, which only recently learned a survivor of RMS Titanic’s sinking in April 1912 was buried on the grounds.
“It’s going to be very simple,” local historian Nancy Brennan said. “It’s going to say he survived the sinking of the Titanic, worked in steel mills.”
Brennan said there has been much interest in Lindquist since the Register published an article April 15 — the 100th anniversary of the shipwreck that claimed more than 1,500 lives — on the man who lived through the Titanic disaster but eventually ended up at Napa State Hospital due to schizophrenia.
