Bob was not only a neighbor in Derby Downs, but became a great friend to us over the years. We attending many Boyd BUCS football games at home and away. We would run into him all the time at the grocery store where he would pick up his daily meal - every employee calling him by name. He had a special place in his heart for our little Jack! His amazing smile and great laugh will always be remembered. This truly breaks our hearts! Prayers for you Bobby and the entire family.

Stanley was the oldest child in our family. I was the youngest sister of three girls. I have many wonderful memories of my brother growing up. One the best is: My brother had a beautiful voice. I would always ask him to sing to me, and he would. It would not only bring peace to me, but made me fill safe. Memories is something you will have, and no one can take those meories away. My heart goes out to everyone in his family with many prayers for them. I love you so much Robert Stanley Long. Rest in peace.
