Sunrise: October 11, 1967 Sunset: March 13, 2021
Tracy R. Lucas, son of Levi and Bertha Lucas was born October 11, 1967 in Pineville, Louisiana. At an early age he moved with his family to Fayetteville, North Carolina where he was baptized at Lewis Chapel Missionary Baptist Church.
Tracy was a 1985 graduate from Seventy-first High School. After graduation, he accompanied his family when they moved to Dallas, Texas. He then pursued a career in automotive. He quickly mastered the skills that lead to a successful career. He later owned and operated an environmental service company which had several contracts in the Dallas/Ft. Worth business area.
Tracy’s most notable accomplishment was being a #GirlDad to Jordyn. He was a dedicated father that was present for school activities, father/daughter dances and family vacations. Regardless of distance, it was never an obstacle being a present father. When they were together, he enjoyed providing Jordyn with a hot breakfast before school, which often consisted of pancakes. Jordyn was always by his side. Whenever you saw one, you saw the other. They spent quality time grilling talking sports, watching Ridiculousness or just hanging out. The shared an unbreakable bond, that could be felt by those around them.
In recent years, Tracy was a 24-hour caregiver for his 92year-old maternal grandmother, Gennie B. Cheney of Alexandria, Louisiana.
Tracy was preceded in death by his father, Levi W. Lucas. Tracy leaves to cherish his memory, his greatest contribution, daughter, Jordyn Michelle (her mother Karla Smith-Lucas). His mother, Bertha C. Lucas, will deeply miss her only son. He also leaves cherished memories to: sisters, Lawanda Crawford (Todd) and Elaine Williams (Alexandria, Louisiana); one nephew, Deonte’ Marquis; one niece, Nadia Alexandria; one great-nephew; Tristian Isiah; one great-niece; Ai’yana Denae; along with a host of uncles, aunts, cousins, and other relatives and family.
Wise Words From My Dad ~Pray first before you do anything ~Aim and shoot high in your goals ~Stay focused on God ~Never let others discourage you concerning your past ~The past is exactly that: “the past” ~Live everyday one day at a time ~Remember only God knows your future and He will not put you through more than you can bear ~Do not look to man for your blessings ~Look to the door that only He (God) as prepared in advance for your future ~Wait, be still, stay patient ~Keep God first and everything else will follow
-J- When Tomorrow Starts Without Me When tomorrow start without me, please try to understand, That an angel came and called my name, and took me by the hand; The angel said my place was ready, In Heaven far above, And that I’d have to leave behind all those that I dearly love. But when I walked through Heaven’s Gate, I felt so much at home, for God looked down, smiled at me, And told me “Welcome Home.” So when tomorrow starts without me, Don’t think we’re far apart, for every time you think of me, I’m right there in your heart.
Words of Gratitude We are forever thankful for your kind words, love and support. Your prayers and words of encouragement during our loss are deeply appreciated. We are forever grateful.
