Russel Keith Long, age 58, succumbed to his brief but very courageous battle with pancreatic cancer on Friday, May 11, 2018 at 9:18am. Russ was the loving and devoted father to his son Rusty and his daughter Breanna (predeacesed). He was also the loving and dedicated husband to wife, Tanya of 28 years, and to sister, Landy Libens. He was the favorite in-law of Pete Libens and all of his wife's family in South Carolina. Russ was also a dedicated and caring friend to so many.
It was Russ' wish to not "do the funeral thing", but to celebrate his life at a later date (to be announced). Donations can be made in his memory to a favorite charity. The family wants to extend their love and sincere appreciation to those special friends that participated in his final journey and to the doctors and nurses at Akron General Hospital.
