Tracy was born on September 26, 1961, to father Carl Peterson and Mother Jacqulyn Peterson, who both preceded him. He grew up as the youngest son in his family, with two older brothers, in Anderson.

He then moved into the manufacturing industry, and many other business ventures.

Tracy married Barbara Jean Peterson later. They lived in Anderson, IN where they raised their children Joshua, Jenna, and Jeremy.

Tracy was a great man with an unmatched work ethic. He always enjoyed working to provide for his family and loved traveling with them. He enjoyed going to festivals, auctions, listening to records, watching westerns, and was an amazing businessman. He had a sharp mind for business and never hesitated to try something new. Where most [people would fear starting a new business venture, Tracy met the task with excitement and hard work. Tracy had many different skills and believed that you could teach yourself to do most anything. This is a value and trait he passed on to his children, along with his great work ethic. He loved his family more than anything and would do anything for them.

Tracy is survived by his three children Joshua (Tori), Jenna (Ty), and Jeremy; 9 grandchildren Jeremiah, Lucas, Levi, Jaylea, Bailey, Loralye, Lilly, and one on the way; brother Terry Peterson (Sharon); and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family.
