Tracy knew God and believed in him and lived his life in a way people could see Christ through him. Tracy accepted Christ as his personal savior early in life and he joined Hillfield Baptist Church where he served faithfully.
Tracy was an exceptional young man, his disability never hindered him from achieving any goals in his life. Tracy inspired so many with his courage, determination, and loving spirit. He loved to educate, sing, ride four -wheelers, and spend time with his family. Wherever he went, his loving spirit and personality created laughter, fun, tears of joy and happiness. Tracy faced many obstacles in life, but he never let anything stop him. Tracy attended University of Tennessee at Martin where he earned his bachelor’s degree, in Interdisciplinary Education and Grand Canyon University where he would have graduated this December with his Master’s. Tracy was a busy young man. He was employed at Western Mental Institution, Hardeman County Board of Education, and Shaw’s Broadcasting.
Now, Tracy rest in the arms of the Lord where he is at peace, no more pain, tears, working, traveling from one job to another. I can hear him saying, “now this is where it’s at.” Tracy’s father, Ellis Bowers: stepfather, George Davis: Grandparents; Arron and Virginia Long, and Guy and Mae Ossie Bowers, all preceded him in death.
