He was born September 21, 1937 in Farmer, Ohio to Ned and Vearl (Wilcox) Tracht. His family moved to Huron where he graduated from Huron High School in 1955. He graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor in Architecture on June 10, 1960.  On June 11, 1960 he married the love of his life, Joan (Bardshar) Tracht. In their 61 years of marriage, they have two sons, Dan (Dawn) and Dave (Tricia), and 5 grandchildren.
