Tracy Lee Thomas was born December 15, 1967 in Jackson, TN the son of Freddie Thomas and the late Patsy Sanders McManus.

Tracy worked for over 20 years as a welder with Steamfitters Local Union 614. He was an avid outdoorsman enjoying hunting – deer, duck and turkey along with fishing. He loved spending time with his children and especially his grandchildren, Huntley and Oakley. Tracy was an excellent cook, master of chanterelle mushrooms and crawfish boils which he enjoyed preparing for his family and friends. He was a selfless man with one heck of a sense of humor, always the life of the party and enjoyed the little things in life that most take for granted. He lived by his favorite quote, “that’s the way world goes around.”

He proudly served his country in the United States Navy from November of 1990 to August of 1994. He was an expert marksman in M-16 rifle and .45 caliber pistol.
