William Thomas Tracy Jr (Bubba)
October 5, 2001 - September 13, 2023
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of William Thomas Tracy Jr, affectionately known as "Bubba," who departed this world on September 13, 2023, in his hometown of Bronx, NY. At the young age of 21 years old.
Born on October 5, 2001, Bubba brought joy and warmth into the lives of his family and friends. He was the son of the late William Thomas Tracy and was lovingly raised by his Mother Danielle Cioffi and his stepfather, Mathew Hohl.
Bubba was a true New Yorker, growing up amidst the city's hustle and bustle. He embraced the vibrant culture and spirit of New York and carried it with him wherever he went.
One of Bubba's greatest passions was fishing. He was an avid fisherman who found solace and happiness by the water's edge. His fishing adventures were not just about catching fish; they were about connecting with the natural world and finding peace in the tranquility of nature.
But what truly set Bubba apart was his extraordinary kindness. He possessed a remarkable ability to make friends wherever he went and to lend a helping hand without hesitation. Bubba never met a stranger; to him, everyone was a potential friend and comrade. His heart was as big as his smile, and he shared his love generously with everyone he encountered.
The only thing Bubba loved more than fishing was his family. Bubba's devotion to his family was unwavering. He cherished the bonds he shared with his four siblings, Jessica, Rose, Andrew, and Aidan. His love for them was a testament to the strength of family ties.
In his short time with us, Bubba touched the lives of many, leaving a legacy of love, compassion, and boundless generosity. The memory of his kindness and love will forever remain in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know him.
A memorial service to celebrate Bubba's life will be held on Wednesday, September 20, 2023 from 2-7 PM at Schuyler Hill Funeral Home and a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday, September 21, 2023 at 11:00 AM at St. Frances de Chantal Church. Friends and family are invited to come together to honor his memory.
Bubba's passing leaves a void that can never be filled, but his spirit will continue to shine brightly in the lives of all who were touched by his love and friendship.
