Daniel Ross Long




Mr. Daniel Ross Long (Dan, Danny) died October 22nd peacefully at his home in Fuquay-Varina, NC at the age of 57.

Danny was born in Minot, North Dakota, but moved to NC as a young boy. He attended Sanderson High School in Raleigh and lived in Wendell, NC for many years. He worked as an electrician for most of his career. He specialized in large commercial lighting and lighting upgrade projects.

He is survived by his mother Dorine Long of Fuquay-Varina and his father Louis Long Sr., Jane Hallberg, sister Penny Long, brother in-law David McCorkle and brother David Long of Raleigh, brother Louis Jr. (Buzz), sister-in law Susan Long of Fuquay-Varina and sister Cindy Maroun and brother in-law Rick Maroun of Los Angeles, CA.

Danny was a thoughtful and caring son, brother and uncle. He had a special place in his heart for his many nieces and nephews, Autumn, Jeffrey, Claudia, Emma, Annamarie, Sarah, Ryan, Jason, Dustin and Katie.

He enjoyed photography and was a big sports fan, particularly of the Chicago Bears, Cubs and NC State. However, NASCAR was his passion. He watched (even attended many) every race from February to November for as long as any of us can remember.

Danny will be remembered and missed by all his family and friends.
