Wonderful words were spoken, songs of praise were sung and everything turned out very nice. Befitting for a man that has lived such a peaceful and wonderful life. Bro. Johnny Tate spoke on behalf of Bracket Masters Racing Team and did a wonderful job. Lacey was a Charter Member of Bracket Masters Racing Team, Inc.
It would be fitting to say that as a racer, Lacey loved his 1957 Plymouth GTX, with a 440 Mopar engine, he named it, “The Tank”. Every year he would bring it out to the track and run in the annual Fathers Day race and that was all the racing he needed each year. It should be noted that in his last race, July of 2016, Lacey won two rounds and he was so happy. Lacey was on his game and the car ran flawlessly. That made all of the team very happy!
There has never been a more caring teammate than Lacey. He would help anyone and it made helping him a pleasure. He would call team members just to say hello and check on your family. We will miss the smile and loving nature of Lacey.
Team members and close friends served as pallbearers, active and honorary, during the service and internment.
