Michael Travis Long

MICHAEL TRAVIS LONG, born July 24, 1953, age 55 passed away peacefully at his home to be with Jesus on Thursday, June 4. He loved Jesus with all of his heart and made Him known to others wherever he went. He was preceded in death by his mother, Addie Lucille Roe Bright. He is survived by his fiancée, Cindy Herrington Williams, daughter, Jessica Long Schiff and husband Jon, father, Jerry Travis Long and stepmother, Pat, brother Mark Long and wife, Lisa, step brother, Bill Musgrove and wife, Margaret, and numerous relatives and friends. He had the most beautiful, loving, kind heart and was loved by everyone. His humor, positive outlook, attitude and outgoing personality touched so many lives, even strangers that he would run across. He loved and enjoyed life, was always joking, and could make anyone laugh. He attended West University Elementary, Pershing Junior High and Lamar High School where he graduated in 1971. Auto racing was his passion. He was a member of the South Texas SCCA and known in the racing circle as "Zippy" for his driving abilities for which he had many awards and accomplishments. He was also a Race Official. He willingly gave advice and instruction, and he offered his hand to reach out to anyone in any way to help and benefit them. He volunteered for many events to stay as involved as he could with the sport that he loved. He raced in the Houston, Austin, and San Antonio areas. He was employed by Eastman Logistics as an Agent in Sales and Specialized Operations where he was also very respected and loved. He will truly be missed by everyone and his memory will always be in our hearts and spirits. Funeral services will be held on Friday, June 12, 2009 at 2pm in the Chapel of Forest Park Westheimer Funeral Home with visitation one hour prior, 12800 Westheimer Rd. Houston, TX, with interment to follow at Forest Park Westheimer Cemetery.
