Robert Bob Lloyd Long, born Aug. 18, 1939, in Placerville, Calif., passed away on Sept. 10, 2013, in Grants Pass, Oregon, at the age of 74. He was a former resident of Del Norte County and had been residing in Grants Pass. Robert was a past member of the Crescent City Elk’s BPOE #1689 for 35 years and a former 45-year member of the Crescent City V.F.W. Post 1381, where he once served as Commander and also a member of the Del Norte Arabs.

A lot of people don’t accomplish even half of what Robert Lloyd Long did in his lifetime. Robert was a true hero, peacekeeper and gentle soul. He served our country in the Navy and U.S. Army Oregon National Guard. Bob had worked for the Crescent City Police Department and served over 20 years with the Del Norte County Sheriff’s Office. In his retirement he served as Chief of Police in the Oregon towns of Union, Gold Beach, Aumsville and Rogue River, also as Chief in Tulelake, Calif. Robert solved countless criminal cases and homicides while keeping us safe and protecting us for over 35 years in law enforcement. But more importantly, he was a phenomenal person who gave selflessly time and time again. His short battle with cancer only, once again, proved his bravery and love for those he cared most about.

Robert has peacefully left behind his children Amanda Fithian, Jonathan Long and Richard Long and his sisters Pam White and Sandra Morrison, his former wife Bonnie Long, along with his mother Jean Jordan.

Funeral services will be held at Wier’s Mortuary Chapel in Crescent City, Calif., on Monday, Sept. 16, 2013, at 1 p.m., with interment to follow at the Del Norte Veteran’s Cemetery with military honors.

Family and friends are invited for fellowship following services at 120 Maple Tree Lane, Crescent City, California.

Please sign the family’s online guest book at wiersmortuary.com.

Arrangements are under the direction of Wier’s Mortuary Chapel.
