Paul David Longo, 66, of South Abington Twp., Pa., passed away Friday evening in the Hospice of the Sacred Heart in Dunmore, surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Nuremburg, Germany, to the late Maurice P. and Rose C. LaMorte, he graduated from Frankfurt American High School, class of 1968, and was an Eagle Scout. He attended the University of Notre Dame on a full ROTC scholarship, graduated in 1972 with a degree in civil engineering and began his 20-year military career in the Navy, during which he served throughout the United States and in numerous countries, including Guam, Midway Island, Thailand and other areas of the South Pacific, ultimately reaching the rank of lieutenant commander. He continued his education with master's degrees from the Pennsylvania State University and the University of Southern California, authoring a thesis at the former still in use by students today. Before his retirement, he worked as a civil engineer in the local construction industry for L.R. Costanzo Construction Services in Scranton, Pa.

Surviving are his three children, Stephanie Longo, San Jose, Calif.; Christopher Longo, Pullman, Wash.; and Kathryn Longo, Fort Collins, Colo.; two sisters, Linda Longo, Avoca, Pa.; and Judith Tole and husband, Steven Tole, Bristol, Conn.; also nephews, great-nieces and nephews and one great-great-nephew.

The funeral will be Friday with Mass of Christian Burial celebrated at 9:30 a.m. in Our Lady of the Snows Church, 301 S. State St., Clarks Summit, Pa. Interment with full military honors will be in Arlington National Cemetery at a later date. Friends and relatives may visit Paul's family Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Carl J.
