He was a Bar Foundation Fellow.   Tracey and his wife of nearly sixty years, Gayle, were always in attendance at Bar Foundation events during his tenure as a Bar Foundation leader. His son, Tracey, III, joined his father’s law office upon being admitted to practice and currently serves as a Bar Foundation Board member.   Tracey Weber, Jr.-All honor to his name.     FacebookTwitterPinterest
