Randy A. Tracy, 47, of Reedsburg, formerly of Elroy, passed away into heavenly bliss into the arms of our savior on Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017.
Randy was born on July 25, 1970, to David and Sherry (Winchell) Tracy in Hillsboro. He grew up in Elroy and graduated from Royall High School in Elroy.
Randy was a hardworking man and was always willing to offer a helping hand to anyone. He worked various jobs throughout his life; he was a semi-truck driver for Snyder and Roehl, as well as worked for Ho-Chunk Convention Center for 10 years in Environmental Services. He developed many special friendships there that included Eddie Dunkin and Larry Hinze. Randy was a terrific cook and baker. He was always willing to bring something special for pot lucks to share with his coworkers. He was especially noted for his famous desserts: blueberry cheesecake and chocolate French silk as well as his chicken noodles and beer-battered fish. Randy ended his career with Ho-Chunk in 2016 when he could no longer work due to his cancer. He had a special place in his heart for horses and had a great collection of horse statues. During his spare time he was an avid postage stamp collector with his collection going all the way back to 1805.
