Thank you for everything you’ve taught me dad. 17 years was not long enough to learn everything you wanted me to learn. I still have so many lessons I want you to teach me and so many more memories to be made. I love you so much, every time I ride my motorcycle you’ll be there right beside me. I’ll see you again some day dad, for now keep me safe and guide me in the right direction from afar.

The stories he told either made you laugh or say no way. Tracy had a big heart of Love an you just had to Love him,no way out of it.

When I think back on my memories of Tracy I remember the time Gene and I, newly married, agreed to stay at Aunt Charleen's and watch her three kids for a week while she went out of town. Tracy was probably 16 or 17 at the time. He kept me on my toes all week just trying to find him! Ha! The last time I saw him he was at my mom's house a couple of years ago. He had all of us in stitches entertaining us with tales of his skydiving adventure! I will always remember Tracy as a fun-loving, kindhearted, gentle soul who would do anything for anybody! I will miss you, Tracy!

When Tracy would meet you it was with that big Tracy smile/grin, a big chuckle, and a Big Ole Warmheart Hug. Haven't seen Tracy for a while, but we'll meet again. Last time I remember we was playing pool at Dutchmill in Logansport, we both love the game. I bet right now Tracy and Uncle Clyde are together playing 9 ball or talking about coon hunting, they loved to run the dogs. Tracy passed before his time but experienced a full life filled with family and friends that loved him. Love ya Cuz, prays are with you and your family.

Just seems so unreal that someone with a personality that was larger than life is no longer with us...but he is...no one is gonna forget that smile or laugh. As one of the "hooligans" from Royal Center of the 70's, Tracy knew how to laugh, joke, and have fun. His partners in kid-crime, Donnie Floyd and Mike Metzger to name a few, made the most of growing up in a small town and how to keep it interesting. Tracy's smile, attitude and fun loving personality will stay in his friends and loved ones memories forever. Thoughts and prayers for his family.

Uncle Tracy you were the closest Uncle I had not to mention one of the best uncles someone could ask for! Yes we argued and never agreed on anything. But boy did we have alot of good memories at all of the bars around Murfreesboro and also outside of the bars and all of the family gatherings you were one of the funny ones in the family not to mention funny looking as well with them damn Crocs !You were so stubborn at times but also had the heart of gold that didnt mind sharing that heart of gold with the ones you loved dearly! There wasn't one thing any of us asked for that u wouldn't do for us an I can speak for alot of people when I say this we will never stop loving u or missing u we just have to learn to live without u here with us for a little while!! But we will see each other again until then we will keep you and the memories you gave us in our hearts I hope those angels all ready for you!!!Anyone that knows you knows you're going to give them one hell of a ride an I love you so much !!!!!!!!!!
