SALISBURY, Md. - Tracy Allan Gibb III, of Salisbury, MD, went peacefully home to be with the Lord on Saturday, April 28, 2012 at Peninsula Regional Medical Center. A brave young warrior who's small stature belied a big personality and an even bigger heart, Tracy never let his status as a cancer patient label him as anything other than a child of God and a loving and spirited person. Living a life marked by cancer four times would be enough to break anyone's spirit, but it had the exact opposite effect on Tracy. Approaching each test result and health trial armed with his faith in the Lord and a positive attitude, he didn't just preach the survivor's motto of "Live Strong," but he became it and lived it every day. His perserverance and positivity were his trademark. A hero to us all, Tracy inspired many people to change their attitude when they could not change their circumstances. Whether attending his nephew's soccer games, grabbing dinner with friends, or being enraptured by the Yankees game, Tracy was a very involved uncle, friend, brother and son and never wanted to miss out on anything. He was passionate about mentoring others and being a good example for people of all ages to stay strong and put their trust in God.
Now in the Kingdom of Heaven and at peace with our Savior, Tracy is survived by his loving parents, his sister, his two brothers, two sets of grandparents and countless extended family members and friends. Tracy Gibb's legacy of living strong and being a witness for Christ will live on in our hearts forever.
Funeral services will be held at the Allen Memorial Baptist Church in Salisbury, MD on Wednesday, May 2, 2012, beginning at 2:00 PM.
