Insert Real Name (IRN for short) died yesterday at his home in Nelson Bay, NSW at the age of 88. IRN, known as Trey, and his husband of 41 years, Ian Smith, have owned and managed the Capt Nelson’s Inn for almost 30 years. Trey, immigrated to Australia in 2008. A graduate from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis MD, and Georgetown University in Washington DC, he served in the U.S. Navy for over 11 years. Trey left the U.S. Navy in 2001 and worked in the information technology field in the Washington DC area until he moved to Sydney in 2008. Shortly after arriving in Sydney, he founded the gay travel company, OutAdventures, which specialized in GLBT vacations and adventures in Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific. In 2011 he met his husband Ian Smith and they were married in 2013. After 16 years, Trey sold OutAdventures to the American gay travel company, Atlantis, and moved to Nelson Bay, NSW where he and Ian bought the Nelson Bay Bed and Breakfast and then renamed it Capt Nelson’s Inn. Trey is survived by his husband Ian, 89, their son Nick, and his sister who lives in Colorado Springs, CO, USA.
