Tracy was born in Prairie du Chien and graduated from Prairie High School in 1970.

After graduating, Tracy moved to Baraboo where he lived most of his adult life.
He worked as the Manager of Sporting Goods at Farm and Fleet, followed by many years at Perry Printing. Tracy loved to play fast pitch and slow pitch softball. He was a great card player, especially Hearts, Euchre, 500, and most of all Cribbage. Tracy loved the outdoors, hunting, and fishing.
He earned the nickname of “Snag” at an early age while fishing on the Mississippi River. Later in life, Tracy enjoyed selling sweetcorn at the end of summer with good friend Fuzzy Otto. Tracy loved being around family and ribbing his good-natured siblings, nephews and nieces.
He found great joy watching the Green Bay Packers and teasing his dear friend Barb about her “over-the-top” support of the Packers.
Tracy will be missed dearly by his brothers John (Pat), Tom, and Todd (Leslie), all of Prairie du Chien, special friend Barb Yager, nephews, nieces, and many great friends in the Baraboo area. He was preceded in death by his parents, Bill and Mary, as well as his sister Mary Kay.
