Tracy then worked in the family business installing garage doors, worked for McGuire Iron painting water towers, worked at Chief Welding manufacturing ethanol plants, and most recently worked at Superior Garage Doors.

Tracy was a very generous person and would give the shirt off of his back if someone needed it. His family remembers Tracy as a free spirit that just marched to the beat of his own drum. It didn’t matter if he had a dollar or a hundred dollars in his pocket; nothing really rattled him. He loved to hang out with his family and his friends. Tracy also was a true Mark Martin NASCAR fan.

Tracy was preceded in death by his father, Don Sr. Gullickson; two brothers, Stephen Gullickson and Jerry Nagel; and both his maternal grandparents and paternal grandparents.

    To my Mother, Siblings and Family. I’m not sure how to get through this tragedy, except for with Gods help and holding tight to each other. We will cry. We will scream. We will shut down from exhaustion. But WE WILL also, put one foot in front of the other and trudge on. I truly believe God will carry us when our feet and hearts get too heavy. Then gently set us back down so we can continue on. I love you all and will be praying for all of us. Love Kristy

    I am so sorry everyone. My 💓 goes out to each and every one of you especially Mom. I do not know how go through losing a child. My best 2 memories of Tracy is when he “walked” me down the isle and when he stayed with Jeff and I and he slept on a baby bed mattress. Jeff should have that picture. He will be very missed in the family.
