  My very deepest sympathy to Erma Jean and the entire Tracy family. I first met Tom in 2003 when the UCC Alumni & Friends Association was honoring Tom for his many contributions to UCC over the years and I will never forget after going to Mass with Tom and Erma Jean we went to dinner at one of Tom's local restaurant's where no menu was needed and everyone knew his name. Tom was very funny that evening as he spent time asking me many questions about where I came from in Ireland and who my family were, etc. We had a wonderful evening. I still have a special millennium bottle of Bushmills that he gave me that was selected for him...The Baron of Bunratty. Cheers Tom, you will be missed.

  I was deeply saddened to hear of Tom Tracy's death. A number of philanthropists have become involved in Irish affairs in recent years; they have all given generously. But more than anyone, Tom Tracy crossed the sectarian divide and genuinely opened his heart to both traditions in Ireland. For this he deserves to be remembered with more than special affection.

  Dearest Kilian Tracy and Family,

Please accept my deeepest sympathy. Your father was a man never to be rivaled in this life or the next. He was a man of immense character and spirit who gave to his family, friends, Church, and community without reservation.

On a personal note, I will always cherish my moments with your father, from times spent discussing the merits of conservatism and liberalism to the time I broke the top of the Waterford cookie jar and he simply smiled. I especially enjoyed our shared Catholic faith.

My thoughts, prayers, and spirit are with you, Kilian, and your family during this time.

With sympathy,
Nathan R. Durdella

  It is with great sadness that I learnt of Tom’s untimely death. I had the pleasure of travelling from Belfast to work for and spend time with Tom in 1994 and 1995. He was a very sincere, generous and intelligent man who made the most of life. I am personally indebted to him for his warm hospitality and the good humour that he showed at all times. He gave me the opportunity to work as a computer programmer and I have happy memories of the time we spent configuring his PC to use the internet and send emails for the first time.
Tom was first and foremost a family man, and may I pass my deepest sympathies to Erma-Jean, Cyndi, Tina, Kerry, Kelly, Tommy and the extended Tracy family circle at this sad time.

  Dear Erma Jean and Family,

There are no words to describe how I feel for a time as sad as this. Tom has touched so many people’s lives and has impacted my own through his examples of how he helped others unconditionally. Tom gave me the means, flexibility, and the motivation to finish college and the opportunity to work for him for the last 20+ years. He will always be remembered in my heart. I would like to tell Tom the last three words he said to me: “God Bless You.” My deepest sympathy and prayers are with the Tracy Family.

  Dear Erma Jean and family:
Tom and GPD were always my favorite FAR when I worked at Ford. It was always a treat to visit GPD and see Tom. Tom was always so full of good will and he loved a good time. He could strike up a conversation with any one on a moment's notice. I will never forget the time Tom started joking with a bunch of Buddhist monks one time when we were out to dinner with a bunch of the dealers. It will never be the same now when I come out to LA. God bless you Tom!

  To: Erma Jean and Family.

The world will be poorer with the departure of Tom to his eternal home. He was a passionate, committed individual---a man who extended a helping hand when Northern Ireland needed it; who opened doors for those who wanted to build a better future and a man who was a fearless champion of freedom and democracy. A lot of Tom's work went unreported and I, for one, feel privilaged to have known this great individual who simply didn't know how to take 'no' for an answer.
