Tracy Hett

Tracy’s life began on May 31, 1966, in Marion.  He was the son of Lyndon and Neva (Kelsey) Hett.  Tracy was baptized at the Aulne Church in high school. He is a 1984 graduate of Marion High School.  Tracy was united in marriage to Geraldine Bresson on March 16, 1996, in Las Vegas.  He worked with his dad for 11 years at Aulne Grain prior to starting Trace of Copper in 1990.  Tracy loved creating unique artwork in his shop at Trace of Copper and was well known as a gifted artist.  He was a huge KU Jayhawk fan, an avid hunter and fisherman.  Tracy grew a bountiful garden every year, competing with his dad for the largest onion, as well as being a “chicken grower”.  His loving family includes his wife of 25 years Geraldine of Marion, daughter Allison Hett of Marion; parents Lyndon and Neva Hett of Marion; siblings Travis Hett of Moundridge and Dusty (Misty) Hett of Marion; nieces and nephews Ashley (Steven) Honeycutt, Jeffrey Hett, Brittany Hett, and Koby Hett; great nieces and great nephews Aaron Honeycutt, Brooke Honeycutt and Julian Honeycutt.  Tracy passed away at his home on Thursday July 1, 2021.  His family will gather with friends on Friday July 16th at 11 a.m. at the Shelter House on the East side of Marion County Lake (look for green tents) for his Celebration of Life led by Pastor Jeff Lee of the Aulne Church.  Yazel-Megli Funeral Home, Marion is serving the family.  Memorial contributions in Tracy’s name may be directed to Marion County Quail Forever in care of the funeral home.  Please sign his online guestbook and leave a memory of Tracy at www.ymzfh.com.

Last month I saw Tracy for the first time in over 20 years..... the first thing that I noticed was that his smile had not changed one bit. We sat at talk about our families, work, politics, and all the crazy stuff we did growing up. Lyndon, Neva, Travis, Dusty Geraldine, and Allison. Tracy was a special person.... our deepest condolences.

Geraldine and Ali, I am so, so, sorry to hear about Tracy. It is still hard to wrap my mind around it. Tracy was truly a wonderful man. He was so giving and so kind, especially to me! He ALWAYS welcomed me in your home. I remember vividly, his smile and sense of humor, and I still have some pictures of the three of us. We always had a good time, and the two of you, supported me so much. I always knew the if I needed anything, you and Tracy would be there for me. You and Ali will be in my prayers. I love you guys and will be here if you need anything. God bless you and keep you.

My husband was the United Methodist Bishop for Kansas from 2004-2016. During those years I came to know Tracy and worked with him on several projects. I am devastated by this news. He was kind and talented and my go to artisan for many projects. I have many many things he made. I am praying for his family. I am devastated by this news and know you are more so. Know God is with you and has Tracy! Tracy is one of the good guys and will be sorely missed. Blessings on you all during this difficult time.
