Daniel George Tracy
May 1953 – February 2023
Dudley – Daniel G. Tracy, 69, of Dudley, MA., passed away quietly on February 14th after a tragic accident. He was the loving husband of Robin Tracy. Born in Allentown, Pennsylvania, he was the son of the late George and Ruth (Smith) Tracy.
Although born in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Dan was raised in St. Petersburg, Florida. Upon graduation from Boca Ciega High School, he continued his education at Florida State University where he achieved a master’s degree in Business Administration.
Dan relocated to Massachusetts after his schooling and started to pursue a lifelong career in risk management consulting. After a long career in this field Dan retired, which let him engage in his true passion: knowledge. Dan enjoyed audiobooks and podcasts that spanned topics such as science fact, science fiction, and business law. You could always find him with an earbud in his ear listening to one of his favorite science fiction books on his iPod. Dan’s exploration of knowledge had him on the internet, in books, watching lectures, and reading magazines. Dan also enjoyed sports including football, basketball, baseball, and golf: all of which he had incredible knowledge of statistics for. Dan also had a deep appreciation for music, which he researched just as avidly as any of his other interests. Dan often printed things from the internet, to continue his research away from the computer including a periodic table that followed him around the house during his final days.
Dan is survived by his son Joshua Tracy; sisters Ellen Simpson (Glenn) of Marietta, GA, and Carolann Tracy of Kenneth City, FL; sisters-in-law Kathi Peterson and Bev Shaw; brother-in-law Jim Shaw; as well as many nieces, nephews, and his entire extended family. Dan is predeceased by his sister Kathy Tracy.
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Gilman and Valade Funeral Homes and Crematory. A memorial service will be held on February 25, 2023, 11:00 AM, at the Living Faith UMC, 53 Grove Street, Putnam, CT. Burial will take place at Putnam Heights Cemetery at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to the Living Faith UMC Shaw Scholarship.

So very sorry for your loss. My deepest sympathy goes out to both of you at this time.
Robin, Josh. Though we never met I feel as though we have because Dan shared stories about his family life so often with me. My condolences to you both for this tragic loss. Dan defined the words “gentle man,” and I am honored to have been his partner in so many stimulating conversations, along with having him as a dear friend. He will live on in our memories.
