He was awarded the Navy Commendation Medal with Combat "V" for his service as a Marine officer in Vietnam and was truly proud to be a Marine and of the men with whom he served.

He is survived and dearly missed by his wife of 44 years, Mary Sue (nee Haydon), sons Brian (Catherine) and Richard Tracy, Jr., brother Henry, sister Celia Creskoff, grandsons, Harold and Frederick Welsh, many cousins, and his good friend Dottie the Dog.
