Armand Christopher Longo, 65, of West Creek passed away Tuesday, April 20, 2021.

His sister, Maryann Montano, predeceased him.

Born in Bayonne, NJ, Armand lived in Jersey City until moving to Wayne, NJ in 1964. He then moved to Barnegat, NJ where he has resided for many years. Armand graduated from Wayne Hills High School. As a child, he loved acting and singing in school plays. He loved putting his little brother in the dryer for a spin, as well as taunting his big brother with spaghetti sauce as well as getting into general mischief. Armand’s energy and humor were always in abundance and would light up a room. Oh, and that hair!

Armand learned to strum the guitar in his later years, he enjoyed his loyal dog, Cole but above all else, he adored his grandchildren and the times he spent with them.

Dear Armand, As one of your older cousins, it was great to keep in touch with you by text for the last few years. I was happy, a few years ago, that I was able to see you at your apartment in South Ocean County for a visit. I am sorry that I couldn't see you in the last few months, but I have had some medical issues. I loved seeing you at Linda's house for the family reunion and it was cute when you said that you knew I was a Longo cause I had the Longo nose. I will miss your texts and your sense of humor. Rest in peace, Cuz, and greet all our relatives and we will see each other again. Love, Roe

Armand,
You left way too early but lived a lifetime. Despite the many highs and lows you were always a brother and as some others learned a teacher. I know your in a better place and no longer fighting the pain. Give my regards to Maryann. See you on the other side someday.

Hi Uncle Armand and Aunt Dolores, Christopher , Casey, Lacie, Noreen ,Jimmy, Marge, Gene, Terry John, Vicki, Livannah, Christopher, Laila and Mikey, Michelle and Dawn . Firstly Im so sorry for your loss. I am deeply saddened by the death of Armand, my cuz. He was a sweet person and I remember him (when I was a kid ) spending time at his house with his brothers and sister at the "Kids table". Where all sorts things would occur . In a playful way, the boys and Maryann would play with us , we would engage in food fights and fun at the kids table and all in all I always remember Armand as a joyful sweet ,kid with a funny sense of humor. I moved to Los Angeles in 1978 and lost contact with my cousins but did reconnect with them after 40 years and the connection was so strong. I talked to Armand on facebook and he would always say to me " happy birthday cuz" ... or he would tell his daughter Casey " Maria is your cousin from Los Angeles" and I will miss him but I know he is with the rest of our family now (Maryann, Aunt Louise, Aunt Angie, my father Ralph Longo , Uncle Sal, Uncle Rocco, Aunt Rose, my Mom Nancy Longo and Grandma and Grandpa John and Rose Longo. My childhood memories were good ones and I will never forget all the fun I had with my cousins in Wayne,NJ. Rest in peace Armand and I hope you are now free from the pain of this world and watching us from heaven.
Love Maria Longo-Brazill

So sorry to learn of Armand’s passing. I remember back in high school when Armand and I were paired up to take “Behind-the-Wheel” Driver’s Ed with Mr. Teeling (?). When it was my turn to drive, Armand sat in the back seat while I was very diplomatically given instructions on Valley Road like, “Slow down. No need to drive so fast.” When the lesson was over, Armand said to me, “Man, I smoked a whole pack of cigarettes when you were driving, Denise!” Still makes me giggle. Armand will be missed. Rest In Peace.

Armand was my classmate at Theunis Dey, Schuyler-Colfax, and Waye Hills. I'm sad to think he won't be with us at our 50th Reunion in 2023. Rest in peace, my friend. Say hi to Bill for me.

I was saddened to learn of my old friend Armands passing. He was quite a character growing up! We served as alter boys and his goal was to make you crack up when serving mass😂. We kept in contact over the years via FB, it was always good to hear from him. RIP my old friend, you are now at peace!!
