January 2, 1956 ~ February 14, 2018 (age 62)

Ronald (Ronnie) G. Long, 62, of Graceham died on Wednesday, February 14, 2018 at Frederick Memorial Hospital. 

Born on January 2, 1956 in Waynesboro, PA, he was the son of the late Frank and Betty (Pryor) Long.  Ronnie was the beloved husband of 39 years to Donna Stahley Long. 

Ronnie was the successful and hardworking owner of Long's construction for many years.  He loved playing Golf with friends and according to his golf buddies, was sometimes really great at the game and sometimes-well-just OK.  Ronnie was a kind and generous man with integrity and a warm smile for everyone and was so well liked that friends and family alike say he had no enemies. He was lucky enough to marry the love of his life, Donna, who he had known for over 44 years. But, Ronnie's favorite activity of all was playing with his Grandson, Chase who called Ronnie "Pap Pap"!

He was pre-deceased by father and mother-in-law, Joseph and Rita Stahley.
