Tracy’s most prideful aspects in his life were marrying his wife, bringing his three amazing and beautiful children into this world, and watching his children become parents. He adored his grandchildren and loved watching his family grow. If building a fantasy heaven team, Tracy would be the absolute overall #1 pick. His family and friends were beyond blessed to be on his team. He meant so much to so many. Tracy was very selfless, always putting others before himself. His generosity for his family, friends, and his community was always at his forefront.

His cavalier spirit always shined. Annually, Tracy looked forward to traveling with his family and friends throughout the country, especially South Florida where he envisioned retiring. Tracy took absolute pride in everything he did, he was a true perfectionist. If the job was done by Tracy everyone knew it was done right. He was everyone’s “go-to-guy”. If anyone was ever looking for him he could often be found on his tractor, cutting his lawn, several times a week. Tracy used to find enjoyment in hunting. He always appreciated Friday night get-togethers at Abdo’s house and meeting up with the guys to watch football at Applebees.
