Larry Tracewell

1946-2021

The Porsche Club of America Oregon Region mourns the passing of Larry Tracewell, our Membership Director and Board member for over three years.  Larry had been hospitalized recently due to serious, non-Covid related medical complications.

Larry and his wife Linda joined PCA and the Oregon Region in 2016.  With his engaging personality, Larry quickly became involved in various club activities.  In 2018 when the ORPCA Board was seeking a Membership Chair, Larry volunteered, embraced the work and made it his own. As an example, he developed a system to track lapsed memberships, which boosted the club’s retention rate.

I spoke with Larry before he passed to express the appreciation of the Board and the Membership for his many contributions and service to the club.  He became very emotional, and although it was difficult to speak, said, “I love you guys, you’re the best”.

Larry will be missed by many.  His enthusiasm, his passion, and big smile!

Drive on, my friend.

Steve Miller
President
