Tracy Lamont Thompson was born on September 6, 1967, at Freeman Hospital in Washington, DC to Dorothy Thompson McBryde and Cephus Thompson, Jr. He transitioned from his earthly home on June 7, 2021, at age 53. The youngest of four siblings; sisters, Deatrice “Bud”, Cecelia “Nikki” and brother, Aaron; Tracy was raised in Palmer Park, Maryland and educated within the Prince George’s County Public School system. As a child and into adulthood, Tracy loved being outside with his friends, attending the local go-go’s, watching movies, and traveling to Wilson, North Carolina to visit with his cousins. With his outgoing personality, he always enjoyed talking, dancing and making people laugh. A loving and devoted father to his four children; Tiasha, Jasmine, Teriq and Tracie Mariah. He acknowledged each of his children with a certain fondness and favor; in part to a lot of practice in parenting from being “Super Uncle” to three of his special nieces Monique, Latoya and Courtney.
Tracy showered his children, nieces, and nephews with love. He would call each of them often just to make sure they knew he loved them, which would always put a smile on their faces.
No stranger to hard work, Tracy was employed with DC Government throughout his working years, along with working for his brother’s company, Cee Ron Enterprises. Tracy always loved pictures and had an eye for good scenery which led him to opening his own photography business. Every time you would see Tracy, he had a camera in hand and that was the beginning of T point T Photos.
Continuing on the entrepreneur path, in early 2000 Tracy received his commercial driver’s license, purchased his own 18-wheeler truck and started T point T Trucking; with the assistance of his daughter, Jasmine who facilitated and dispatched loads. Tracy was just plain and simply FUNNY; he had a saying and nickname for everyone he encountered. His heart was enormous, especially in his love for family. Like his mother he expressed his passion the most through his cooking, as it was one of his favorite things to do. He danced as he cooked and
there would frequently be enough to feed an army. Tracy was one of a kind and a special being to his family and friends who will truly and utterly miss him. He was preceded in death by both of his parents, Dorothy Thompson McBryde, Cephus Thompson, Jr.; uncles, Donald and Jesse Raynor and grandmother, Mattie Lucille “Dee” Green. Tracy leaves a legacy of love, patience, kindness and a life to be celebrated and cherished by his children, Tiasha Thompson, Jasmine Thompson “his Mookie”, Teriq Thompson “his Spoon” and Tracie Thompson “his Shank Shank”; three grandchildren, Hunter & Logan Thompson and Teh’Mari Green “his bestfriend”; brother, Aaron Thompson, sisters, Deatrice “Bud” Raynor, and devoted protective sister, Cecelia “Nikki” Thompson; nephews, Christian Ragin “his Woodrow”, Anthony Brown, Aaron Thompson, Jr., and Dexter Weaver; nieces, Monique Lawrence “his MoMo”, Latoya Burch (Anthony), Courtney Raynor-Woodard “his Gladys” (Javon) and Sherron Thompson; uncle, Kareem Latif; blessing sister, April Johnson and a host of great nieces and nephews; all of his favorite cousins from Wilson, NC, extended relatives and several lifelong friends who became family.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Stevens Funeral Home 1820 Martin Luther King, Jr. Parkway, Wilson, NC.
