TRACY, Nelson Joseph, Jr., age 76 peacefully passed away at Bethany Village Centerville OH on July 15, 2019. Joe was born in Ashtabula OH on January 19, 1943, the son of Nelson J. and Genevieve M. Tracy. An avid sports enthusiast, Joe was a standout football player at Ashtabula High School. He furthered his education with a BA from Baldwin Wallace University and a MBA from Miami University. As an account manager, corporate planner, and operations director, he worked with NCR, Robbins and Meyers and Carlson Marketing, retiring from Catholic Social Services after 25 years of service as Director of Finance and Administration, where he was loved by his “work wives”. Joe treasured his many friends from the “Meadows”, the Bubba-Tracy tennis tournament, all his basketball and tennis buddies and especially his Thursday lunch group. He will be missed by many. He is preceded in death by his parents and sole sibling Penelope Topoly, and survived by brother-in-law Bart, nephew Andrew (Susan) and niece Eve Joseph (Matt).

Please accept my most sincere sympathy for the death of your loved one. We can find comfort in the word of God because it assures us that "there is going to be a resurrection" (Acts 24:15).  God promises to give life back to millions of people who have died, and he desires to do so very soon.

We know this from what a servant of God from the past, Job, asked God: “If a man dies, can he live again?  I will wait all the days of my compulsory service (death) until my relief comes.   You (Jehovah) will call, and I (Job) will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands." (Job 14:14, 15) God is longing to give life back to those who have died.

Perhaps these words do not calm your pain but we are certain that God will resurrect all those who demonstrate faith in the sacrifice of His son, Jesus Christ. Reflecting on the divine promises found in the Bible will give you the hope and strength to keep going until all of God’s promises are fulfilled.  May these words bring you and your family much comfort from Jehovah God, the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4).
