Memorial services will be held for Alton Long, 76, of Ermine, will be held on January 22 at the Neon Reformed Presbyterian Church, and streamed on Seth Long’s Facebook page. Visitation will begin at 6 p.m. and the service at 7 p.m.

Funeral services will be held in Spring City, Penn., at a later date, and at that time his remains will be buried among family at the Vincent Mennonite Church Cemetery.

Born in Liverpool, Penn., to the late Russell and Katie Long, he died December 31 at Pikeville Medical Center as a result of complications caused by COVID.

Mr. Long was a member of the Neon Reformed Presbyterian Church.

He enjoyed woodworking, and would often travel to Pennsylvania to purchase wood, equipment and other things.

Surviving are his wife, Emily Long; two sons, Seth Long and wife Sheryl of Ermine, and Luke Long and wife Sandi of Coventryville, Penn.; seven grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers the family asks to consider sending a contribution to support Mr. Long’s Kentucky church home, Neon Reformed Presbyterian Church, at P.O. Box 11, Neon, KY 41840.

Letcher Funeral Home of Whitesburg has charge of local arrangements.
