Tommy O'Conner Longino, 83, was born in 1922 and died at his home in Pensacola, Fla., on Wednesday, April 26, 2006, surrounded by family and friends. He was a valiant man and put up a strong fight. He did not want to leave us and we did not want him to go, but his body could take no more. He leaves a hole in our hearts and our homes.
