Ronald Eugene Long – obituary


Ronald Eugene Long passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, May 15 at his residence.

He was preceded in death by his parents Robert “Bob” and Nancy Long and a brother Eddie Long.

He is survived by his beloved partner, Connie Cooper of the Yellowhill Community; daughters Faith and Hope; sons Jacob and Uriah; granddaughter, Maleigha; granddog Aquilla and Tom Cat; and brothers Robert (Joann), Pete (Vickie), Donald (Bernadine), and Kenneth (Rhonda).  Ronnie also leaves behind many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Ronnie resided in the Yellowhill community with his beloved partner Connie.  He was loved by many and will be dearly missed.  He was a stranger to no one and always willing to lend a hand if able.  He loved to cook and share his specialties with his many friends and family.  He was an avid fisherman and loved to spend time in the beautiful mountain streams.  He was also a motorcycle enthusiast who loved to tour our wonderful mountain scenery.

He attended the Cherokee School System and participated in football and wrestling where he excelled.  He went on to work at the Cherokee Boys Club in their Printing department for almost 28 years.

Ronnie enjoyed family and friend get-togethers where he could be found cooking fish, barbecuing, or finding other ways to make the time enjoyable for all who attended.  He loved to laugh and hear his friends laugh.

The family will celebrate his life with a memorial service at the Big Y Community Club on Thursday, May 17 from 6 – 8pm.  Please come by visit and share his life with us.
