February 19, 1955 – April 9, 2018
Tim M. Long, age 63 passed away on April 9, 2018. He was born in Atlanta, GA. He graduated from Westminster High School and went on to become a proud graduate of the University of Georgia. Not only could you call him a true Atlantan but also a true Southern Gentleman.
While Tim worked in the Financial Industry for many years and was a proud member of the Georgia National Defense Force, he was happiest when working on his home. He loved his role as the pool-guy, the yard-guy, firewood guy and mister-fix-it. With Google and YouTube as his resources there was nothing that Tim Long could not fix! Or at least give it a darn good try!
Tim always had a smile on his face and laughter was never far away when he was around. Tim was equally comfortable as the life of the party as he was the steady hand and shoulder to lean on. Tim was always there to offer a helping hand, sound advice and guidance.
Tim’s talent as a softball player was only surpassed by his talent as a musician. There was not an instrument around Tim could not get a tune out of. Some of the happiest times would find him jamming with friends.
Tim is survived by his loving wife, Dawn Scranton-Long, faithful companion, and the best dog, Eddie, mother in-law Sherry Melvin, brother and sister in-law Michael and Melissa Scranton and many wonderful cousins from North Carolina.
Tim’s spirit, smile, and laughter will be forever missed.
Memorial Services celebrating Tim’s life will take place on Saturday, the 14th of April 2018 at two o’clock in the afternoon at H. M. Patterson & Son Arlington Chapel, 173 Allen Road, Sandy Springs with the family receiving friends at one o'clock.

This photo is so Tim. It's entitled Good Hunting. Just stumbled across it and had to share. Thinking of you, Dawn, and keeping you close in prayers for strength and comfort.

My memories are more from childhood. Our fathers were WWII veterans and brothers, Nick Long and Ralph (Trixie) Long. Uncle Nick and Aunt Ina would come from GA to Eastern NC every summer to visit. Tim was a rascal and lots of fun. I have some crazy memories. His brother, Jeff, was quieter. Our grandmother, Mimi, favored the boys and loved Tim and Jeff. Uncle Nick took us to the NY Worlds Fair in NY in 1964. I was 12. Also went snake hunting on the Chowan River. Will always picture Tim smiling. Love ❤️ to you Dawn!!!

Dawn, I remember the 1st time that Gene and I met Tim. It was at the Home Depot in Roswell. I remember him as a very friendly, easygoing person. I am so sorry for your loss. I pray that God will help you and ease your pain through this time. Again, I am truly sorry. God Bless you and keep you.

Dawn, the news of Tim’s passing was tough to hear. We met during the Dun & Bradstreet days in the late 70’s. It was always fun when Tim was part of the mix. His zest for laughter and easy smile would light up any room. He was an enthusiastic member of the Masterbatters and after one game at the afterparty, he asked me if I had any frozen food and I produced a pack of cauliflower. He jammed a stick through it then went out to the bonfire beating on a wheelbarrow chanting Sac-ri-fice de Caul-i-flower! Sac-ri-fice de Caul-i-flower! There were so many hilarious memories dressing up in character like Bob Horner, JB Stoner -too many to remember. We already miss him and I ask God to give you strength to get through to some peace.
