Tracy Lavern Deminski was born on December 28, 1953 in McCook, NE to V.I. “Bud” Deminski (deceased) and Vene DeMoss Deminski. His two older sisters, Kathy (Jim) Salts and Jeri Barber were expert teasers. He passed away on Wednesday, April 19, 2023 in Methodist Hospital, Omaha, NE after a short battle with lymphoma.
Tracy was educated in the Cambridge (NE) public school system, graduating with the Class of 1973. He lived on “kid row” in Cambridge and developed many lifelong friends on that street. He enjoyed a care free life growing up in Cambridge and he talked about it often. After high school graduation, he received his Associate Degree in art from Southeast Community College in Milford, NE.
Tracy married Connie Jones on January 10, 1976 in Cambridge, NE and they moved to Omaha. He spent the rest of his life there. Tracy and Connie were blessed with two children, Nathan Luke (Sherry) and Katie Lora (Matt). He was very proud of his grandchildren, Leah Vollmuth, Megan Vollmuth and Miles Vollmuth. He especially enjoyed attending their soccer games.
Tracy spent most of his career in the graphic arts/printing fields. He was very gratified with the “hand work” he did before the advent of computers. He didn’t care much for computers! He had many hobbies: water color painting, stained glass, and wood working. He was very happy when his beloved Cubs won the World Series in 2016! In his younger years, he was a fabulous drummer! But most of all, Tracy was funny!! Everyone enjoyed his sense of humor. Friends and relatives could always count on a good laugh when Tracy was around. He was definitely a “quick wit”!
In recent years, Connie finally convinced Tracy to do some traveling. In 2016, the entire family spent a week in Maine. In 2017, Tracy and Connie went on a Viking River cruise on the Moselle, Rhine, Main rivers. Tracy loved it! In 2022, they went on another cruise down the Rhine from the Netherlands to Switzerland. Finally, also in 2022, they took the “Trip of a Lifetime” to Ireland, Scotland and Sweden with their Soucie relatives and son, Nathan.
