Tracy Clay Freeny

Tracy Clay Freeny Tracy Clay Freeny was born in Oklahoma City, Okla., to Gracy and Henry Freeny and right now they are having a fantastic reunion in Heaven.
Tracy went to schools in OKC, graduating from NW Classen in 1962. He played baseball and basketball for NW, chosen All City, Big School Player of the Year and All State. He went to OU, where he had so much fun he forgot to study, transferred to OCU where he played sports for them, then Henry Iba offered him a full ride to be OSU's second baseman. He met his wife Sharon at OSU on her first day of college. He loved OSU and playing baseball. OSU went to the College World Series where they lost in the final game but being second in the nation was still great.
Tracy and Sharon got married. After college and National Guard Basic he started in the life insurance business. 25 years later he gave up his clients to be co-founder of a telephone company. For 16 years he was the president and chairman of the board. While he worked for them they were blessed to donate over $70 million dollars to charities. Later in life Tracy was a consultant for start-up companies. He loved helping charities, and he was on a few boards. Tracy's most favorite thing was talking to people about Jesus and the Lord. He prayed every day for the salvation of people he knew or names of strangers that others asked him to put on his prayer list; it was really long!
Tracy is survived by his sisters that he adored, Sara Jo Odom and Sandy Birdsong and their families. Tracy will be greatly missed by his wife, Sharon (Roederer), and family.
Tracy's immediate family is Sharon, and their wonderful kids and grandkids who treated him like a king: Stacy and Jeff Cato (Caleb, Ashton, Cameron), Shannon and Shawn Rohrer (Sloan, Riley), Scott and Kristen Freeny (Quin, Sydney), Shawn (Jason), BJ Hatch and Audri (Noah and Isabelle).
In lieu of flowers, if you want to honor Tracy please make a donation to your favorite charity, or one of these Edmond based non-profits: Arise Ministries for Single Mothers, or FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes), or Water is Life.
A Celebration Service will be 1 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2019, at Church of the Servant Methodist Church, 14343 N. MacArthur Blvd., Oklahoma City, OK 73142. Tracy loved bright clothing and dessert, please come prepared to join him in rejoicing!

So very hard to believe. The energizer bunny with the infectious smile is gone…a teammate and friend throughout the years. A teammate is akin to being a Marine…It’s forever. So many stories…so many memories. We thought, at the time, a loss to El Reno in the 1962 State Basketball Tournament was the end of the world, but it was only the beginning. May the Pied Piper of Northwest Classen rest in peace.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Sharon and the entire Freeny family.

Tracy was a good and wonderful kid in the 8th grade. Many time we discussed the Freeny Farm in Blanchard.
