    My heart is truly broken but at the same time I know you are healthy and whole. I have loved you from the first time we spoke on the phone at 12 years old. A Star is Born will for ever be my favorite movie, since that was our first kiss from my first love. So many memories come flooding back to me, and would still get.that flutter in my heart when I heard your name. My biggest thrill was when you were playing at the Fall Festival talent show and mouthed I love you to me from the stage!! I will forever be one of your biggest groupies!! Tammy, thank you for being so good to him all these years I know he loved you as much as you loved him!!

    My heart is broken, but light at the same time, knowing you are no longer in pain. I knew you were a special person from the first time we talked on the phone at 12 years old. A Star is Born will forever be my favorite movie since that is where we shared our first kiss. Oh the memories that flood back to me. Every time I hear the song Don’t Leave Me This Way, I see you waving goodbye to me as I stand on my front porch. And loving that when I would here When I Need You was the song you said made you think of me. Still my favorite memory was when you and Kelly played in the talent show at the Fall Festival and from the stage you mouthed I love you to me!! What great memories we shared!! You were my first love and showed me what a real man should be. Tammy, I can’t thank you and love you more for making him so happy over the years. I love you both so much

Tracy Lee Arndell, 60, went to be with Jesus on March 2, 2023. He was born in Evansville, Indiana on September 3, 1962, to Alton Gene and Dorothy (Turpin) Arndell.

Tracy was a jack of all trades. He had many hobbies including camping, fishing, playing pool with a league, and golfing. He was a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and the Miami Dolphins. Tracy enjoyed riding his Harley with the love of his life, Tammy. Tracy could do just about anything. After his time in the Navy, he worked in maintenance, owned his own painting business, volunteered with the fire department, was the town marshal of Tennyson, IN, and even was a reservist with the Chandler Police Department. Tracy was funny and enjoyed laughing and cracking up. Most certainly a man that will be missed by anyone who knew him.

A special shout out to all of the best friends who became our family.

Tracy is survived by his devoted wife, Tammy Jo; his children, Candice, Billy, Zach (Valerie), Lynsie, Cory; his grandchildren, Aria, Chance, Dominic, Nadia, Malachi, Brooklyn, Corey, Jackson, Colton, Jesse, and Phillip; his siblings, Robyn (Bill), Kelly (Eyde), Mitzi (Dan), and Cindy; many loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
