Tracy enjoyed the company of others and left a lasting impression on those he came to know. He loved being a husband, father and most recently, grandfather. His love was expressed both through his actions and his words and both he and his wife reminded their children of that every day. His kind heart was transparent to those around him and was therefore loved by many and befriended by all.

Tracy is survived by his adoring wife of 30 years, Opal; two sons, Brent (Megan) with grandson Brock Tracy, West Fargo, ND, and Bryce, Frazee; mother, Margaret Moen, Hunter; brothers, Murray, Fargo, ND, Brad (Marsha), Valley City, ND, Randy (Colleen), Hunter and Barry, Hunter; uncle, Deane (Betty) Moen, Arthur, ND; along with several nieces and nephews.

Tracy was preceded in death by his father and best friend, Ted Moen; loving sister, Jan; and precious infant twins.
