Obituary for Lee Long

Lee Long
Lee Long
October 9, 1956 - Saturday, May 5, 2018

It is with the greatest sadness that I announce the untimely passing of my husband, Lee Rodney Long, of Waiparous, AB, on May 5, 2018.

Lee was born on October 9, 1956 in Lacombe to Percy and Lorena Long. He was the youngest of three sons. The family homesteaded just west of Blackfalds. Lee later resided in Central Alberta, Prince Albert, Swan Hills and finally settling in the Village of Waiparous.

Lee was a consultant for new oilfield and environment technologies working alongside his closest friends. He worked from home and consulted in Texas which he enjoyed tremendously.

Lee was known for his great love of the outdoors; motorcycle riding, prospecting, fishing, and various nature activities. Among his greatest accomplishments was firefighting, as a volunteer for 15 years in Swan Hills, rising to the rank of Deputy Fire Chief and accumulating many awards and citations. He felt the greatest satisfaction in giving back to his community. Lee’s love of animals knew no bounds and throughout his life he raised and rescued many cats and dogs; 5 of which are left to mourn him.

He is survived by his soul mate and wife of 34 years Melody Long; his children Rachelle (Ryan) and Matthew; grandson Asher; brothers James and Ronald (Anne); uncle Glen; and numerous nieces, nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Percy and Lorena (Gant) Long; his grandparents Arthur and Martha Long, and Marley and Suzanna Gant.

To say Lee was a great man is an understatement; he was the best. He loved greatly, and he was loved greatly. He touched the lives of so many people and will be sorely missed by his many friends and colleagues.

You are welcome to attend his Celebration of Life in Innisfail, Alberta at the Royal Canadian Legion (5108 49 Avenue) on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at 1:00 pm. A Scattering Ash Ceremony will be held in Swan Hills, Alberta at the Keyano Centre (5632 Main Street) on Saturday, May 26, 2018 at 2:30 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Swan Hills Fire Department (firechief@townofswanhills.com).
