Obituary of Thane Long
Thane Veron Long
We are saddened to announce the passing of our father in his 93rd year on January 17, 2018, in Lawrencetown with his family by his side. Born in Powerlot, he was the son of the late Ralph and Zeddie (Wright) Long. Thane was the last surviving sibling of his family. A beloved husband, father, grand-father and great grand-father, Thane was a very loving, kind, and gentle soul. He was a member and trustee of the Clementsvale United Baptist Church and also sang in the choir. Thane was a 48 year continuous service member of Branch 122 Clementsport Royal Canadian Legion where he enjoyed playing pool and cards. At the age of 19 he enlisted in the Canadian Army where he served overseas during WWII. Thane worked as a carpenter at CFB Cornwallis for 28 years where he retired at the young age of 65. He always enjoyed working in his garden and cutting up his firewood. Dad was loved by so many and will be sadly missed by everyone.
