Thomas Long Jr

Feb. 6, 1922 — April 3, 2014

Thomas R. Long Jr. passed away at Madigan Medical Center in Tacoma, Wash., on April 3, 2014. He moved to Washington in 2012 to be near his daughter, Tammy Long, and grandchildren, Breanna and Ryan Griffin. Born on Feb. 6, 1922, he recently celebrated his 92nd birthday. He was born in Corning, Calif., and raised in Susanville.

While a young man, Thomas joined the Marines and, after his military service in World War II and Korea, followed his family to Placerville, Calif. He met his future wife, Maxine, at the Ivy House Restaurant. They were married in 1959 and had two daughters, Tammy and Raedean. He and Maxine also raised three children from a previous marriage. He worked for Cal Door Lumber, Placerville Lumber and Raymond’s Liquor and Sporting Goods for many years. He retired in 1992.

Thomas was preceded in death by his wife, Maxine; and daughter, Raedean. He is survived by daughters, Tammy Long, Karen Cornell and Sindi Briceno; son, Gregg Baker; six grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild, with another on the way. A memorial service followed by a celebration of life will be held in his honor at 1 p.m., on Saturday, June 7, at the Veterans Memorial Building at 130 Placerville Drive in Placerville. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Local Chapter 63 of the Disabled American Veterans.
