He was the son of Thomas V. Tracy and Irene S. Randolph.
Marriagecirca 1945Ralph Weston Tracy married Josie Ann Birdsill, daughter of George Birdsill and Mary Benish, circa 1945.
Marriage29 June 1997Ralph Weston Tracy married Rose Leone Hanusa, daughter of Edward Henry Hanusa and Clara Pauline Terasa, on 29 June 1997.
Death5 April 2013Ralph Weston Tracy died on 5 April 2013 at age 95 On Friday evening, April 5, 2013, we lost another member of the "Greatest Generation." His name was Ralph Tracy. Ralph was born in an upstairs bedroom in a house on Third Street in Wonewoc, Wisconsin in 1917. He was the middle child of ten born to Thomas V. Tracy, of Hillsboro and Irene S. Randolph, of Elroy, Wisconsin. Ralph attended grade school near Camp Douglas at Tug Hollow School. The family returned to Wonewoc in 1931 where Ralph completed high school. He attended the University of Wisconsin – Madison until 1939, when broke and hungry, he joined the U.S. Army Air Corps. Ralph reported after his last class to Chanute Field Illinois in May of 1939 to become an Air Corp Flight Crew member and Radio Operator. His service to our country spanned the best part of seven years. He was assigned to flight crew duties with the 6th Air Force, 44th Bombardment Group, Medium. Ralph served at Albrook Field, Panama and Atkinson Field, British Guiana where he completed twenty-seven combat missions against the German U-boat Fleet in the central Atlantic and eighty-two Reconnaissance missions of the Caribbean and Atlantic coast of South America. Ralph mustered out of service in September of 1945 as a Master Sargent and received an American Defense Service Metal and a Bronze Star. He restarted his life married to Josie Ann Birdsill, daughter of Mary Benish and George Birdsill, of Hillsboro, WI. Together they headed to Northwestern University where Ralph completed a degree in Electrical Engineering with academic honors. Ralph worked for the Chicago Transit System for thirty years. He started as a Motorman and ended his career as Chief of Operations with supervision of 1200 employees. Jo and Ralph danced together for 54 years, but the best times were always at home in Wisconsin and at "The Cottage" on Jordan Lake. Jo passed away suddenly in 1994 turning Ralph's world upside down. God had a second life planned. In 1996, feeling very low, Ralph, now eighty years old, met Rose Grosklaus of Reedsburg. Rose's love restored Ralph's love of life. They were married at St. John Lutheran Church in July of 1997. They danced and traveled together until medical challenges separated them physically, but their love for one another never wavered. The Grosklaus family has enriched the Tracy's. Thank you Rose, you're a dear heart. Ralph is already missed by his wife, Rose; his sisters: Fern Artz and Florence Hugh; his son: Randolph, and his wife, Joan; his grandchildren: Elisabeth Moore and Charles Tracy; his great-grandchildren: Luke Weston and Grace Marie Tracy; Rose's children: Dolores (Larry) Lichte, Don Grosklaus and Diane (Mike) Whitty; other extended family and a host of friends. A celebration of Ralph's life will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at St. John Ev. Lutheran Church in Reedsburg with Pastor Dominic Guido officiating. Interment with military rites will follow at Pine Eden Cemetery in Wonewoc. This was a life well lived and not bad for a dirt-floor Irish farm kid from Wonewoc. Thanks Dad. Ok, Dad you're off on a "Wing and a Prayer." See you soon. The Hoof Funeral Home is serving the family.
