We lost our father, friend, uncle, brother and mentor Tracy Lynn Shumway in Sandy, Utah on May 10, 2019.
He is survived by his wife Jana; his children Asher and Jade and their mother Summer Dawn Shumway; step-children, Ashley (Brandon), Cory (Jenna), and Blake (Sarah); six grandchildren; as well as mother-in-law Vicki Francom Pierson.
Preceded in death by father, Mark Perry Shumway; mother, Wilma Waddoups Shumway; and father-in-law, Dallis Joseph Pierson.
Tracy was a quirky individual who loved helping others, usually in the form of building or fixing things. This led him to spend time doing charitable work in various places such as New Zealand and Vanuatu. He enjoyed the outdoors and always sought new adventure. As he got older, his passion for building things spread into the field of drones and R.C. helicopters and planes. He loved flying and his attention to detail quickly made him a consultant for the community whenever they needed technical help.
He started two businesses in the commercial refrigeration and specialty coffee industry: Matrix Mechanical and Mission Espresso. His unique personality, hard work ethic, and mechanical abilities greatly contributed to his success as well as meaningful relationships with his customers.
Tracy was an intelligent and unique person, and his sense of humor will be missed.
A celebration of life will be held Friday, May 24, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Starks Funeral Parlor, 3651 South 900 East, Salt Lake City, Utah. All who loved him are welcome and dress is casual. Please use the complimentary valet parking provided on the north side of the building.
