Tracy  Hedrick
Funeral services will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, November 16, at Blurton Funeral Home, 400 N. Vermilion St., Potomac, for Tracy McGill Hedrick, who died unexpectedly Friday, November 8, 2019. Visitation will be 4-6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, at the funeral home. Burial will be in Potomac Cemetery.
Tracy was 77 years old, born June 18, 1942. He resided comfortably in rural Penfield, Ill., and forever lived in central Illinois. He was educated at Potomac High School and raised by farmers, Dan and Martha Hedrick (departed).
Tracy was "retired," however always found the work. He was a proud farmer as well as a truck driver for many years. TMX, Southland, Schugel Trucking and, most recently, Ehler Bros were all places he called home.
Tracy was a dedicated husband, first and foremost. He treasured his wife, Carolyn (Susan) Hedrick, for 48 years and embraced every car ride he could take her on.
He especially loved his role as Granddad and had a vivacious personality - sometimes causing him to get in trouble, never meeting a stranger, and always appreciating a good sermon, trip or song. His conversations held weight and he never sat in a room unknown. His heart was loud, big and good.
He leaves behind a legacy that continues to grow today: sisters, Mary Chambers, Martha Fry; daughters, Marcy Walker, Kim (Rob) DeLong, Joy Michelle (Mike) Ewing, Karen Eyestone (departed) and Elizabeth (Jon) Shroyer; grandchildren, Robb (Heather) DeLong, Ryan (Kayla Wilson) Walker, Danielle (Dustin) Day, Matthew (Katie) Walker, Angela (Jake) Byrne, Eric (Clementina) Ewing, Ashlee Shroyer, Danny Shroyer, Amy Eyestone, Emily Ewing; and 11 great-grandbabies throughout the country. He also leaves behind two nieces, Lydie and Stephanie.
We ask that every time you see a farmer in the field, you think of Tracy Hedrick. In lieu of gifts, the family asks for donations in Tracy's name to St. Jude's.

Haven't seen Tracy in many years. Went to High School with Tracy and enjoyed every minute of time spent with Tracy. If I recall, though my memory is not as good as it was ( he he ) I, Tracy and Ted Spain seem to get into some mischievous ventures often. Tracy was funny, easy to like and I am sorry that I did not look him up in our later years....He will be missed.
