Sad Announcement — March 11, 2018

Hi guys,

Have some bad news: Our beloved member Joe Tracey has passed away due to a heart attack. Joe has been a valued member and a great friend of not only myself but the New England Chapter for many years. He will be sorely missed by not only his family, myself, but all who knew him.

Joe was an awesome guy who found the funny side to any situation. Myself, Laura, Blink and Diane recently spent a few days with Joe at the Snowbird Reunion and he kept us in stitches.

Anyone who would like to send condolences to his family: His wife's name is Birdy Tracey and their address is 909 Hancock Street, Abington, MA 02351-1077.

We will update with arrangements A.S.A.P.

Thank you — Joe has made his last jump!

Rest in Peace, Joe.

Bob Morrissey

Special Interest — Vietnam War

"All Gave Some: An Oral History of The Vietnam War", produced by Scott Strainge, Assistant Principal at the Timberlane Regional High School in Plaistow NH, and a team of students and staff.
