Obituary: Laurence (Larry) G. Long

Published in the TC Palm, August 18, 2015


Laurence (Larry) G. Long was peacefully called to heaven on August 14, 2015 at home surrounded by his beloved family. He is survived by Gail Foley Long, his loving and devoted wife of 37 years, his three children, Kathleen Toto and her husband Albert Toto III, Laurence Long Jr. and his wife Anna, and Pamela Niederer and her husband Brady Niederer, and his three adored grandchildren Alby, Ava, and Andrew Toto. Larry is also survived by his siblings Gail Smith, David Long Jr., Noel Long, and Matthew Long.

He began his career at Pleasantville Ford and in 1979 became a proud founder of Long Motor Company in Princeton, N.J. and retired in 2011.

Larry’s extraordinary devotion to his friends, family, and his work was recognized by all who knew him. He was a consummate family man and professional with an unshakable spirit and bravery. He lived his life as if every day was a blessing, which he encouraged others to do on a daily basis. His virtue, faith, and love for life and those around him will be forever remembered.
