It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Duane Robert Long on Feb 6, 2015. Duane was born in 1957 in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan.
Duane is survived by his wife Carol, his nine children: Daryl, Dave (Abby), Lisa (Jesse), Tenille (Dave), Cheryl (Fred), Darcy (Trissteen), Stephanie, Dwayne (Jaide) and Sean and his eleven grandchildren who were the apple of his eyes.
Duane will always be remembered for being the one there for everyone else. He never said no to help someone out. He loved being outside, it wasn’t until later in life that he realized this and embraced the back country with the same gusto that he attempted anything in life. Duane was a jack of all trades, and to be perfectly honest, master of most of them. He drove the same truck for 20 years, because it still ran. There will not be a funeral because he did not want people to mourn his passing but embrace his life and all that he accomplished.
The celebration of life will be held at his home in Nazko, BC on June 20, 2015. The family requests that in lieu of flowers that a donation be made in Duane’s name to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC.
