Tracy T. Windrum, 70, passed away on December 9, 2020 surrounded by family and friends at his home in Croton-on-Hudson after a brief battle with metastatic melanoma. Mr. Windrum, son of the late Lewis and Lucy Windrum, was born in Brooklyn, NY, where he was raised, on May 9, 1950, and had lived in Croton-on-Hudson for 42 years. Left to cherish Tracy’s memory is his loving wife of 49 years Catherine Windrum (nee Lukacs) of Croton-on-Hudson, whom he met on the basketball court at Wagner College when they were both playing varsity. He is also survived by son Matthew Windrum, of Croton-on-Hudson, and his wife Susan (nee Eason), daughter Amy Maragioglio (nee Windrum), of East Patchogue, NY, and her husband Charles Maragioglio, son Kevin Windrum, of Arvada, Colorado, and his wife Jill (nee Mayclim), seven grandchildren, Ryan Windrum, Charlie Maragioglio, Emma Windrum, Meghan Maragioglio, Caitlin Maragioglio, Ella Maragioglio and Rory Windrum, sister Claire Brody (nee Windrum), her husband Gerry Brody and their son Daniel, and many beloved Lukacs brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and grand-nieces and nephews from his wife’s side of the family. After a distinguished career in print publishing, Mr. Windrum retired as Vice President of Manufacturing and Purchasing at Gruner + Jahr USA Publishing in 2005. His hobbies included traveling with his wife, summer beach vacations with extended family, watching his grandchildren play sports, rooting for New York sports teams, especially the Yankees and Syracuse University basketball, listening to music and reading about history and current affairs. He also enjoyed hosting many small gatherings with close friends, which in recent years had replaced the notoriously boisterous parties he had once been known to host. A wake will be held at Edward F. Carter Funeral Home at 41 Grand Street in Croton-on-Hudson from 1:00-6:00PM on Saturday, December 12, and a celebration of his life will take place in spring 2021. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations be made to the Melanoma Research Alliance. https://www.dignitymemorial.com/obituaries/croton-on-hudson-ny/tracy-windrum-9938011
