Funeral services were held Sunday, Nov. 24, at Hubbard Funeral Chapel here for Harold Gene Long Sr., 63, who died early on the morning of Nov. 22 of multiple cancer.

He had been ill about nine months and was in Youens Memorial Hospital for about a month. He had gone home and had been there just a day at the time of his death.

Rev. Charles Carolan officiated in the services. Burial was in St. Michael's Catholic Cemetery.

Mr. Long had lived in Houston the past 25 years, moving to Weimar when he had retired in June 1973. He had been the manager of Weldon's Cafeteria and later a Stop-n-Go grocery, both in Houston. He also was superintendent of a construction firm there.

Born July 19, 1911, at Marshall, he was the oldest son of Thomas and Ella Woods Long. He married the former Josephine Raabe of Weimar in Houston in 1955.

Surviving in addition to his wife are two daughters, Mrs. Johnny (Sonja) Mica of Houston and Miss Sandra Rae Long of Weimar; two sons, Harold Gene Long, Jr. and Darrell Dean Long, both of Weimar; his mother, Mrs. Ella Long of Baytown; four sisters, Mrs. Jetta McConnell of Baytown, Mrs. Genevieve DeMoney of Marshall, Mrs. Laveda Cornwell of Groves, and Mrs. Lareda Well of Houston; and a brother, Huey P. Long of Houston.

His father and three brothers preceded him in death.

Pallbearers were Melvin Otto, Harvey Mica, Marvin Hrcek, J. T. DeMoney, Joe Adamcik, and Tye Holman.
