On Friday, April 10, 2020, William (Bill) Arthur Long, Jr., loving husband and father, passed away at the age of 76 at Baptist Health in Louisville, KY. He was born July 23, 1943, in Saint Paul, Minnesota to William Arthur and Edna C. Hoermann Long.

Bill was extremely proud to have served his country in the Army as a Lt. Col. He loved playing cribbage, watching NASCAR races, fishing and talking about his family. It was particularly fitting that Thanksgiving was his favorite holiday since it represented his love of family gatherings, eating delicious food, and serving his world-famous oyster stuffing. He attended U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and the University of Minnesota where he received his bachelor's degree in business. He earned his MBA from Governors State University. He later graduated from the United States Army War College.

He is survived by wife, Stacey Long; daughters, Collin Conaway (Gregory), Marin Knight (Eric ), and Lejla Morris; his step-children Nadine Morris, and Nicholis Morris (Dela ); and his grandchildren, Abigail Conaway, Hale Hampton Knight II, Murphy Jane Knight, Kellan Morris, and Cameron Morris. He is preceded in death by his loving parents, and son, William Arthur Long, III.

Bill will be honored at a private military funeral. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the American Cancer Society in Louisville 1640 Lyndon Farm Ct #104, Louisville, KY, 40223.
