This is one person that I will never forget. Tracey was a person that didn't forget anybody and would talk anyone. I can remember Tracey and Lori all the way though high school and what a wonderful couple they made. He had a wonderful family and put his family first. Even though he was not feeling well, he made sure that he came back to be with the family with my mother (Mary Trimpe) passed away. This world lost one of the best person I can recall and would also say I will miss him alot.

With all my Love

Tracey was a lifelong friend, classmate and teammate. He was a constant in the mix of Havana's eastside neighborhood kids of the '70's. Baseball games in Perbix's lot, "army" games throughout the neighborhood, dirt clod fights at various construction sites, basketball games at Borzeka's, kick-the-can at Ulrich's, little league baseball games, flashlight tag, bike ride excursions to the 4-H grounds, apple tree climbs, and "Dark Shadows" at Whitten's every afternoon...... Tracey was an integral part of all of it. Athletic, smart, mischievous and always upbeat...Tracey had the confidence of a gunslinger in any athletic endeavor. Calm and cool in the midst of huge pressure games, Trimp was the guy that never got rattled. As others clinched their teeth in the pressure of the moment, Tracey was calm - a slight smile on his face telling everyone, "I am unafraid." Tracey was special, and he is certainly missed.
