We regret the passing of Jeffrey Arthur John Tracy on January 20, 2020. Loving husband of Barbara Patricia for 68 years. Father of Leslie John Tracy and the late Catherine Patricia. He was a proud grandfather to Jeffrey, Bryan, Michael Tracy and Colin Tracy Foster. Proud great grandfather to Hunter, Benjamin, Connor, Kaleb, Violet, and Samuel.
Jeffrey was a considerate husband, father, and grandparent. He was an avid reader and always ready and willing to assist anyone in need. He was considerate and generous. He will be severely missed by all who knew him. He enjoyed teaching his grandsons to play darts, billiards, and snooker and was always there to support all of his grandsons’ endeavors.
Jeffrey was the middle son of Percy and Doris Tracy of Hayes Middlesex England. Predeceased by his brother Dennis and survived by his brother Donald Tracy of Somerset England. Born in 1931, he was raised during the depression and the Second World War and served his 2 years National Service in the Khartoum and Sudan as a medical aid. He trained as a nurse at the West Middlesex Hospital in London and became a Registered Nurse at Quo Vadis School of Nursing in Toronto some years later. In between London and Toronto, Jeffrey had a successful sales career here in Canada. He later worked in downtown Toronto Public Health Service caring for the forgotten downtrodden men on the streets, helping them in any way he could.
Jeffrey raised his family by example and was always there for anyone who needed him. He was always a calming influence, wherever he went. His light will shine forever in our hearts. He had maintained contact with many friends and extended family around the world. Many thanks to Hospice Wellington and especially to Celia, who sang him to rest with the Beatles song, “Let It Be.”
Cremation has taken place and arrangements entrusted to Gilbert MacIntyre and Son Funeral Home, Hart Chapel. At request, there will be no funeral service. A family Celebration of Life may take place at a later date. As expressions of sympathy, please follow Jeffrey’s example by donating to your charity of choice.
