STEPHEN ROBERT LONG
Surrounded by his family, Stephen died peacefully at the age of 81 on Wednesday, November 21, 2018. Predeceased by his dear wife, Jean, he is survived by his children, Mary Eleanor, Stephanie (Greg) and Alex (Neel); and grandchildren, Hannah and Thomas. Son of the late Drs. John and Eleanor Long, he is also survived by his brother, John and was predeceased by his sister, Nancy and brother, Robin.
A graduate of Forest Hill Collegiate and the University of Toronto (engineering), Stephen had a long and rewarding career with Imperial Oil. He was the consummate "family man," an engaged father who took great pride in his children's and grandchildren's accomplishments, no matter how big or small. With a wide smile and genuine laugh, he was always welcoming to old and new friends alike. He had an adventurous and gregarious spirit, he saw the potential of turning an old schoolhouse into a treasured family retreat, spearheaded family road trips to the east and west coasts, travelled extensively with Jean and friends, and visited his children in far off places. Stephen's close circle of lifelong friends and their families were always in evidence at annual cottage weekends, camping and ski trips and frequent social gatherings. He was always active, a gifted racquet player who transitioned to aquafit later in life.
In retirement, Stephen was eager to keep his mind active as well; he and Jean joined the Academy for Lifelong Learning at the University of Toronto, played bridge and he particularly enjoyed reading about and discussing finance and politics.
Stephen was also community oriented and volunteered with local organizations and in many capacities at Calvin Presbyterian Church. Jean's death earlier this year was a devastating blow to Stephen. He still forged ahead, his lymphoma in remission, only to be beset by a second form of cancer, melanoma, which spread too quickly for effective treatment.
He was, however, able to enjoy a cross-Canada train adventure a month before his death.
A funeral service, followed by a reception, will be held in Calvin Presbyterian Church, 26 Delisle Avenue on Saturday, December 1st, at 2:00 p.m., followed by a reception. Contributions in Stephen's memory may be made to the Ride to Conquer Cancer through http://www.conquercancer.ca/ goto/stephenlong.
