Old man Tracy was a loyal friend and true soldier 'til the end. He was a legend in his time. Jerry was the backbone of his family and protector of his loved ones. His family were very dear to his heart.

Jerry always had an open door willing to help all. Pops was a man of many talents through his lifetime, he did everything from tree work to construction. His wife, Marilyn, and he loved refurbishing old houses and restoring them back to new life.

He enjoyed camping, boating, and motorcycle rides with friends and family. They don't build them like Old Man Tracy anymore. He was dearly loved and will be dearly missed.
