"I am in shock. I was just trying to text Tracy to check up on them because of the wildfires. Previously, I had spoken to him briefly in 2014. The text went to another party, so I messaged him through LinkedIn. I'm not sure why I googled his full name today, but I did and found out.

My sincerest sympathies to Julie and the  family. It's been a while and I'm sorry about that. I'm sorry life got in the way and I had not visited since the Miata. Yes, I'm a car guy too and measure time by cars.

I'll add more in stories, too."

"During the years in which we didn't see each other too much, I always knew I would bump into you and we would be able to catch up at the Moscone during Semicon.  You would always take the time to talk.

This past week, when the trade show was going on, I walked past the Busch booth and felt sad that you weren't there to hang with.

You will always be missed, Tracy."

"Tracy,  We still think of you each day!  Your song is perfect!  Thanksgiving will never be the same even when can make one turkey and my stuffing!  You were remembered on All Saints Sunday at St Matthew and new Life Lutheran Churches and  know you heard the chimes!  Watch over all of us until we meet again!  Nana and Granddad"

"I worked with Tracy at AE and knew Tracy to be the consummate salesperson who truly enjoyed the art of crafting a deal to land a new customer or order.  Always looking for a way to make things work and earnestly excited and enthusiastic about the hope and possibilities that the future order would bring.  Nothing would stand in his way with his dogged approach to finding a way to make things work.  T2 will be missed."

"What a beautiful service for Tracy on Saturday.  Alex, you spoke so eloquently about your father ... you made him proud.  Thinking about you all today as you take Tracy to his final resting place in New Orleans today.  Lots of love, The Colton Family"

"You left us way too early my friend.  You had a lot of "C" words attached to you...Cars...Clever...Caring...Charisma...Comedic and with the recents events in your family and your life...Courageous.  I will miss you...Please keep an eye out for all of us left behind. Gar"

"Tracy, Julieann, Alexandra, Hunter, and Tucker have been part of our families lives on and off for over 20 years. We celebrated most of lives big events together.  Now we celebrate Tracy.

I always picture Tracy with a Diet Coke in hand, a red sports car in his garage and a steadfast opinion on most things. He loved New Orleans, Hard Rock Cafe,beignets , and scuba diving with his friends and children.

You never really know a person as well as you think but what I do know is Tracy loved his family and felt blessed that his wife and mother were always there to support him.  He always wished for health, happiness, and success for all of his children and supported this to the best of his ability.  

He was an engineer at heart and loved to build and design.  When he was sick he always tried to come up with an engineering solution to his challenges.

Not until he passed did I find out he loved woodworking and had a knack for creating things.  

He was proud till the end.  He is now resting in peace with his maker, in his favorite red car.

We will miss him! We hope that his family knows they  will have support as long as we are around.  Love Cindy and Jim Gomez"

"Tracy was a man committed to his family, his clients, his career and doing the right thing at all cost. The past 10 years weren't easy yet he kept a positive attitude and forged ahead with a goal and took on each challenge with that goal in mind - the best for his family.
  Tracy, you will be missed. May you watch over your family from the best of places with our Father in heaven. It was a privilege to know you and way too short."

"Ah dammit Tracy!!  You’ve left us much too soon.  I miss you.

Tracy, you were a wonderful good man and a great friend.

You were the kind of salesperson for whom the thrill was in the chase to land a new customer or order.  You were always excited and enthusiastic.  Resourceful and willing to go around obstacles.  You were a major part of the success that we had at SFI.  I’ll never forget you getting the samples you needed for Seagate.  We both almost got fired over that one.

What I found over the years was that the relations that you developed with customers and people in general were long term friendships.  Ours was!

Whichever company you worked for, you could always get back into the same companies that you had called upon in your previous jobs.  Remarkable!

And on the personal side, I so enjoyed our dinners in Pleasanton.  

Even when you were going through hell with the crap with Genus, you could always find something to smile or laugh about.

Then there were your cars.  The MG.  The Mustang…  

Rest in preace, buddy."

"I have known Tracy for about 15years. He was a loving and devoted husband , father and friend. Tracy was GOOD PEOPLE and I am sure he is in heaven sharing war stories with friends and family that passed before him. I will never forget him."

"Dear Tallman family,

It breaks my heart to be here writing these words. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would find myself, here and now, paying tribute to a great husband, father, friend and man. I met Tracy back in 2003 along with Steve Tateishi and Kevin Moffat; both also dear friends of his. Through the years with all of life's twist and turns we managed to stay in touch and nurture our friendship. One can never be prepared to see a loved one go, and I pray that your loss is a little less painful with the thought that he is no longer suffering. As a christian I relish the thought that he is in heaven with our great God. Sometimes its hard to understand why these happens. I pray that with time your hearts will mend and once again rejoice full of life and happiness. I know that he would have wanted this too. I also know that he is standing tall and proud looking down from heaven holding you all close to his heart. I am so grateful and happy to have been able to shared time with him here recently. It is a memory that will forever live in my heart. GOD BLESS YOU ALL!"

"I had the great pleasure of working with Tracy as the CSR who entered in his orders at VAT.  I trained Tracy on our quote sw and he was so proud and happy when he was able to create a quote without my help.  He would send me the copy of the quote for my files and type Ta. . . Da . . .  I will miss Tracy.  My prayers go out to his family.  RIP Tracy!!  xxoo"

"My deepest sympathies to the Tallman family on the loss of Tracy. I knew Tracy from working with him at Busch and we shared many diving stories since we were both passionate about this activity.  May God rest his soul and give strength to his family."

"I worked with Tracy at AE during his time there 2008-9, and stayed in touch with him afterwards.  Tracy was a very kind man, with a droll, ironic sense of humor that displayed his worldview nicely.  It's way too soon, and way too fast for him to be gone.  I'll miss seeing him at the shows."

This tribute was added by Jeffrey Mehr on 12th November 2015

"It's been a while since I worked with Tracy at Veeco Instruments (I left in 2009), but he still figures strongly in some of my most pleasant memories of that gig. He always brought a quiet sense of humor to his work, and always somehow encouraged me that I could make a difference and produce high quality products even when things seemed caught in that corporate hierarchical struggle we know so well. I'll say more in the Stories section. I have continued to feel good knowing Tracy was somewhere affecting others that way, with his own fresh creative point of view. Now, knowing he has passed, I feel an emptiness that was not there before. I'm sure this is nothing compared to what you, devoted friends and family, are feeling. My condolences and prayers are with you."

"Tracy and I worked together at Busch for 5+ years.  He always had so much enthusiasm for each and every account and transaction.  He definitely gave me a run for my money but I knew how dedicated he was from the inside out.  I am very honored to have called him not only my co-worker but my Friend.  I all ready miss him very much."

"RIP Mr. Tallman"

This tribute was added by Jackie Lucas on 11th November 2015

"To the family,
  Please accept my deepest sympathy during this time. I have found comfort in knowing what the bible says about the future.
  Acts 24:15-" there is going to be a resurrection." God promises that he will soon restore life back to those who have past away. The bible says he has a yearning to do this.  You may wonder if we can trust what he promises? The bible says that " with God all things are possible."

"Tracy was full of energy and excitement about the new business opportunity he brought to Genus, shortly before I joined the company and became his boss. We connected right away, because he was a family men and had customer focus. I leaned a lot from him while trying to support his efforts. Sorry he left so early."
