In Memory of

Tracy Alan Cameron

February 28, 1967 - June 23, 2017

Tracy was born February 28, 1967 in Sacramento, CA, the youngest of three boys born to Robert and Aliye Cameron. As a child he developed a caring attitude toward others, frequently providing support to others during their time of need. Easy to make friends, Tracy became interested in team and individual sports. He was especially interested in tennis, basketball and football. Tracy received considerable kidding because of his choice of the Miami Dolphins as his favorite sports team.

Tracy was outraged by the events following 9-11. These feelings, coupled with his care of others led him to enlist in the US Army where he was trained as a Combat Medic. By that time Tracy was quite a bit older than other recruits, and he quickly earned the nickname "super pop" when his peers saw he was always in front.

He received his specialized training at Fort Campbell, KY and was shortly shipped out to Korea. After an extended tour at the 38th parallel, he was shipped back to Fort Campbell. His next overseas tour was to Afghanistan where he provided care for front line casualties.

When he completed his active duty obligation, Tracy joined the 668th EN BN (US Army Reserves) in Orangeburg, NY and enrolled in Kingsborough College NY. He had completed over half of the courses required for his bachelor's degree.

Those left to cherish Tracy's memory are his wife Agnes, his mother Aliye, his father Robert and his spouse Patricia; his brother Charles and his spouse Adrian; nephew Jason; his brother Glenn and partner Bill Perry; and Uncle Hasan and Aunt Nancy Liman.

Family and friends are invited to a memorial service for Tracy on Sunday, September 17 at 12:00 PM at Lombard Funeral Home, 1550 Fulton Ave, Sacramento. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Disabled American Veterans. Tracy will rest at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon.
