James (Jim) William Tracy, born January 4, 1943 passed away on June 20, 2019. His loving
wife, Betsy, and daughter, Heather, were by his side.
After working for 38 years, Jim enjoyed retirement immensely. Everyone who knew Jim learned
quickly how much he loved playing golf and spending time with friends at the nineteenth hole.
He played at Kennett Square Golf & Country Club and with his friends from Traditions at
Jim loved his family fiercely, especially his grandson, Evan. He was a proud father of Heather,
always encouraging her to work hard and be fair, and the proud father-in-law to Mark Petruzzini
who would cook him the best meals in Texas. Most of all he loved Betsy: their courtship started
many years ago and continued until the end. Their love and appreciation for each other was
evident. He will be sorely missed by all.
