Daniel Joseph Long

After a courageous battle with cancer, Daniel Joseph Long passed away Sunday, December 4th, 2022 at the age of 69 surrounded by his family. He was born on February 18th, 1953 in Detroit, Michigan to Harriet and Joseph Long.

From a very young age, he worked for everything he had. His work ethic was astonishing. This is something he instilled into his daughters and grandchildren. He was the one everyone went to when they needed help. He always seemed to have the answers to their problems. His presence, determination, and sense of humor left an impression on everyone he met and that never waivered in his final days. Dan was known for speaking of his adoration and pride for his wife, daughters, grandkids, and granddogs. Some of his last words were making sure his wife and grandchildren were being taken care of.

Dan is survived by his beloved wife of 44 years, Barbara Boike Long, his daughter Jennifer Long Phelps and her husband Scott Phelps, his daughter Rachel Long Gentz and her husband Jeffrey Gentz, his 3 grandchildren Madelyn and Liam Phelps and Athena Gentz, and many nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held on a date to be determined in January. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the GIST Cancer Research Fund gistinfo.org
