James E. Long, age 66, of Liberty Center, OH, passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 25, 2013.
He retired from Campbell's Soup, Napoleon. in 2003, and later owned and operated Long's Catering with his wife, Terry, for four years.
He was a member of the S.A.L. of the Delta American Legion Post # 373 for the past 2 years and helped cater all of their events.
Born on May 7, 1947 in Weston, OH to Clair and Lillian Long, he was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Chuck Long.

As a chef, his favorite activities were cooking for and being around family and friends. Among his many hobbies, Jim could always be counted on for help with construction / D.I.Y. projects and spent much of his free time gardening, landscaping and hunting with his dog Maxx.
On Jim's behalf, our family wished to extend a very warm thank you to his friends, and the Delta Legion and Auxiliary for your love and much support throughout this trying time.
