OBITUARY

Lee Edward Long, Jr.

February 9, 1999January 10, 2020

Our precious first born son, Lee Edward Long, Jr. was unexpectedly taken from us and is with the Lord our Savior Jesus Christ on January 10, 2020 at the age of 20.

Lee attended Gretna United Methodist Pre-School, Christ the King Elementary School, St. Andrew the Apostle School, Brother Martin High School and graduated from Archbishop Shaw High School. He was a third year architect major at University Louisiana Lafayette (ULL). Lee was a loving son and best friend to his mother, father, sister and little brother. Lee was fiercely devoted to his family and friends and his desire to become an architect. Lee was counted on and loved by so many; our lives will be forever changed but forever enriched by having him in it. Lee found the best in others, gave of himself unconditionally and has left the world a better place. “To know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, this, is to have succeeded.”

Lee is survived by his loving parents, Lee Edward Long Sr. and Kelly Smith Long; his siblings, Lindsey and William; grandparents, Marcus W. Smith Jr., Linda Gober Smith and Simone Thibodeau; his aunt, Kendall Smith Shamas (Mark); uncles, Marcus W. Smith III (Michelle), Ruel R. Smith and Paul E. Long; cousins, Marcus Smith IV, Lauren Smith, Mark Shamas Jr., Sissy Shamas, Gavin Smith, Madison Champagne, Ruel Smith Jr., Marcel Long, Jacqueline Long, Joey Long and Justin Long. Preceded in death by his grandfather, André A. Thibodeau and his uncle, Jack E. Long (Brenda).
