Tom Tracy
Please join us in celebrating Tom's life by a reflection, note, story, or as Dad would say "however the spirit moves you".

  I received the word in Lewisberg that Tom had passed on into the heavens. I send to his wife, children and all of his family my sympathy.

The world turns and Tom is still looking over us from up there.

  To the Tracy family,
Although we are not able to be with you today to say our goodbyes and to celebrate your dad's life, I did want to take a few moments to share some thoughts. In 1975, Genuine Parts Distributors and Tom became a part of our family serving the Islands as the first supplier of Ford remanufactured products and now 30 years later we still share a strong and beneficial relationship. As I reflect back on one of my fondest memories of Tom, it has to be the morning he walked into my office during one of his visits. It was a typical summer day and must have been at least 95 degrees in our warehouse and Tom walks in wearing slacks and a long sleeve shirt. Tom approached me rolling his sleeves up at the same time asking me "where do I start". Somewhat puzzled and thinking that the heat had gotten the best of him, I told him that he could start anywhere he wanted to. After few minutes I decided to check on him and true to his nature Tom was in the parts bins side by side with my warehouseman fixing and rearranging the GPD small parts inventory. His hands on approach and true love of people and the business truely separated Tom from many others.

"ALOHA" Tom,
Until we meet again!!

  I met Tom years ago through Fr.John Sheehan. I remember visiting at work and at the house in Newport. I got the impression that Tom liked hunting, Ireland and was true in his faith. What a wonderful family too. I read in the local section today that Tom had passed of prostate cancer, my father passed of the same thing back in Nov of 05, I'm sure those irishmen will hit it off in Heaven! May the bagpipes play the beautiful sound, that fills the irishman with joy!
GOD bless you Tom!

  My sincere condoleances to the Tracy family. I have had the priviledge to meet Mr. Tracy 2 years ago and work with GPD for the last 4 years. What a first class organization! What a wonderful legacy Mr. Tracy has given to his family and all the employees at GPD...

  Dear Tracy Family, What a man, what a life! (I just got my first computer a few weeks ago and am pretty clueless, so please excuse the lack of proper paragraph form etc). Like Sommer from the Radison, I only know your family from having the pleasure of serving you at the two restaurants I worked at-Nieport 17 and the Monarch Bay Club.I would like to reminisce about the first time Tom and Erma Jean visited the MBC. It was during the slow time between lunch and dinner, so the dining room was closed, and there were only a few members hanging out in the lounge. This was probably fortunate, because after Tom "blew in", he went up to EVERY employee, and EVERY member, shook their hand, and boomed "Hello, Tom Tracy". After he and EJ left and everyone got their breath back and began wondering exactly what force of nature it was they had just witnessed, I told them of my association with your family thru Nieuport 17, and laughed and explained that that's just the way Tom always is--but while he seems at first glance like a tiger, he's really a pussy-cat. Like everyone else has said on these pages, he will be greatly missed. One-of-a-kind, larger than life, broke the mold, etc., cliches that they are, they are all so true. God bless you Tom Tracy Family. Cindy Smith

  Hi Dad
So many people are coming to see you tommorrow and the church is all set up and beautiful. I know you loved the family rosary tonight; there were tears and some laughs just as you would have it. The Trimmins on the Rosary was read in brilliant Irish style. Your poll bearers wanted to roll you down the street in "Tom" style to the church for your overnight rest but the consensus was no; just like you always said too many rules. Oh well, we could hear you loud and clear instructing the hertz how to back up the church though....we all smiled
How trully missed you are but not so far away in our hearts every moment.
See you tommorrow-love you-goodnight
