Avery Merrill "Tracy" Nye will always be remembered as a fine athlete and a kind heart.
He loved his girlfriend, his family, and his brothers.
He sacrificed his life for a cause he felt was right, for his country.
I was 9 years old and miss him terribly - my protector and oldest brother.
May he be at eternal peace ...
From his brother,
Avery M. Nye, known as "Tracy", was everything an older brother could possibly be ... I was proud to be called "Nye's little brother" growing up...
Taken from the family when I was age 11..
