Tracy Allen Osburn

September 23, 1962 — January 18, 2016

Tracy lost his life-long battle with depression when he was unable to overcome the grief of losing a beloved son to the same demon of depression.

Tracy was born in Rupert, Idaho to Norman and L. Ilene (Fallis) Osburn on September 23, 1962, but lived in Phoenix, Arizona most of his growing up years from 5 years old through young adulthood.  He was blessed with six brothers, N. Grant (Phoenix, AZ), Greg (Mesa, AZ), S. Clint ( Blackfoot, ID), Grady (Rigby, ID), Randy (Rexburg, ID) and R. Jayson (Pocatello, ID). The seven Osburn boys have always been close…even best friends.

Tracy met the love of his life, Debra Sue (Stanley) in Phoenix, Arizona in the summer of 1985, and they were engaged to be married two short weeks later. He was a devoted husband and partner. Earlier this month, they celebrated 30 wonderful years of marriage. They were blessed with five beautiful children, Laura Nicole (Shawn) Sova (Strongsville, OH), Tracy Ammon (Brittany) Osburn (Centralia, WA), Tyler Edward Osburn (Shelley, ID), Nathanael “Nate” Richard Osburn and Seth Stewart Osburn (Shelley, ID) and four beautiful grandchildren, Tracy, Stephanie, Kassarae and Dosanaya, whom he loved deeply.

Tracy was an outdoors-man who loved fishing in all seasons, hunting, hiking and camping. He was a leader with the Boys Scouts of America Troop 34 for over 12 years. He enjoyed working with the Scouts, especially the outings and camp outs.

Tracy had a tender, compassionate heart, and he had a talent for caring for others.  His favorite jobs were working at Mountain View Hospital as a CNA caring for post-surgical patients, and working at the Hatti Larlham Foundation in Ohio caring for severely disabled toddlers and then transferring to work the young adults after the heart-breaking loss of a three-year-old named Magic whom he loved like one of his very own children. Tracy was happiest when he was caring for others, and had a talent for personalized patient care.

Tracy is preceded in death by his father, Norman Stanley Osburn, and a son, Nathanael “Nate” Richard Osburn.

Tracy has requested no funeral services, and only wishes to be quietly buried next to his son, which will happen at a later time with a small family grave-side service. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Nalder Funeral Home in Shelley.
