I've known Tracy for several years and always enjoy seeing him. He is so sweet and kind. We always shared with each other how our lives were going. He really enjoyed the trips he and Connie took together. He was very fit and I was impressed when I would see him out running at his age. He was a really great person & will be missed. I pray you will heal from this Connie and be able to smile and laugh again.

I went to grade school & high school with Tracy. He was always nice to everyone & fun to be around. I remember how much fun our class had selling magazine subscriptions, never a dull moment . We called his parents car the Chiefton. It was a Pontiac with the head of an Indian on the hood. Connie, you are in my prayers.

I'm sorry to hear of Tracy's passing. I worked with Tracy at Philips Lighting many years ago. He was a wonderful person to work with and always had a funny sense of humor to brighten up our long work days! We has many laughs together...I would always ask him about how to do home repairs and he always had a funny story to tell me. My sympathies to his sister Connie.
