Obituary

Duke E. Long, 62, of Julian, passed away at home on Friday, July 24, 2020. Born on February 1, 1958, he was the son of Truman E. and Jo Ann (Super) Long, who are surviving at home in Hummelstown, PA.

Duke was a 1976 graduate of Central Dauphin High School in Harrisburg. He has worked as an electrical motor rewinder since he graduated high school up until he passed away.

In addition to his parents, Truman and Jo, he is survived by his two children, Rebecca Powers and her husband, his son, Michael Powers, of Bethany, Pennsylvania, and Derek Long (Carrie) of Boardman, Ohio, and five grandchildren, Alissa Powers, Mikaela Long-Crumlich, Siearra Long, Trinity Long, and Isaiah Long. Also surviving are his two sisters, Joli Long of Belcamp, Maryland, and Kim Bonawitz (George) of Harrisburg.

Duke was active in several clubs and organizations, including the Bellefonte Elks Lodge #1094, Harrisburg Beagle Club, Hummelstown Field & Stream Association, and the Safari Club International HBG, PA Chapter. He enjoyed hunting, shooting clay birds, and anything that kept him outdoors. He enjoyed sharing his love for the outdoors and hunting with everyone. He instilled the value of gun safety to countless children over the years.

A small memorial service was held for the immediate family on Saturday, August 1, 2020, at Wetzler Funeral Service, Inc. in Bellefonte. A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date at the convenience of the family.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Duke’s memory during his Celebration of Life Service and will go to an organization that was close to Duke’s heart.

Everyone who knew Duke, would know that it would only be appropriate to conclude his obituary by saying, “Be good to yourself.”

My thoughts are with Duke’s family. I have known him for about 10 years. I always loved seeing him at the gun club, talking about life. He was always there with a smile and a hug. He will be greatly missed.

Very sorry to hear of Duke’s passing. Although we had t been in touch for many years I remember great times we had in the 70s, riding bikes, running through the woods and looking for “trouble” as teenage boys occasionally do. My prayers are with you all. Seth Dunbar

Please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of Mr. Long--I'm so sorry his family is suffering this tragedy. I hope that you might gain some comfort from the words of Job 14:15, which promises that our loved ones who are resting can one day be united with us.
