Obituary

Long, Gregory “Greg”

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Gregory Ronald Long at age 54. Greg was born on July 15, 1965 in Winnipeg, MB, and passed peacefully in his sleep on Saturday, November 30, 2019 at his residence in Calgary, AB.

Greg is survived by his daughters, Tarra (Tony) and Sabrina (William); grandchildren, Dylan, Liliana, and Ethan; his partner, Brenda; mother, Lillian; siblings, Valerie, Rick (Pam), Susan (Garry), Cyndi (Kim), and many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his father, Ronald; sister, Janice and brother in-law, Gerry.

Greg grew up in the West End of Winnipeg. He was the youngest in a large family of eight with one brother and four sisters. Early on Greg was known for his athleticism. He was an excellent and successful hockey player in high school, and he continued to play his beloved sport after graduation. Greg excelled in the boxing ring and was even able to use the skills he acquired to help defend and aid in circumstances where help was needed. He attended Technical Vocational high school where he began to follow in the footsteps of his dad, Ron Long, in the field of Culinary Arts. After graduating, he moved on to studying at Red River College to pursue his passion for painting cars and all things automotive. His career path in the automotive industry led him to building monster trucks and painting muscle cars. He was extremely talented and became well known in his trade.

Greg spent the last twenty years living and working in Vancouver Island, until earlier this year when he moved to Calgary to be closer to his children and grandchildren and start the next chapter of his life with his love, Brenda. A loving man with a huge heart, Greg would give a stranger the shirt off his back even if it was his last possession. Greg will be remembered for his witty sense of humor, the lending of a helping hand, and he will be forever missed by all who knew and loved him.

Memorial donations may be made in Greg’s memory to Heart and Stroke Foundation

A gathering to celebrate Greg’s life will be held on Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 1:00 pm at Choice Memorial Cremation & Funeral Services (4715 13 St. NE).
