Obituary for Evans Long Jr.

Print
Evans Long Jr. USAF Captain Retired, 72, of O’Fallon, IL, born, September 5, 1946 in Chicago, IL, passed away on Thursday, November 15, 2018 at St. Louis University Hospital.

At the beginning of this holiday season, our family is enormously thankful to have known Evans' unwavering love for his family, absolute generosity, and quirky sense of humor. He never hesitated to help a neighbor or friend and supported us through all circumstances no matter what they were. He loved reading, cooking delicious foods for his family, animals, music, was an avid vegetable gardener, and gave the best bear hugs.

He is so loved and will be missed by everyone who ever knew him.

He was preceded in death by his parents Evans Sr. and Verona Long (nee Brown); sisters Clara Aanerud, and Shirley Long.

He is survived by his loving wife, Vivian Long (nee Boyd), daughters; Tara Long of O’Fallon, IL, Fancee Long-Gorski (Joshua Gorski) of Colorado Springs, CO, brother; Josephier Brown (Mary Hedges) of Beverly Hills, FL, grandson; Orion Gorski, his beloved dogs Rozi and Dakota, and many nieces, nephews, family and friends.
