Harold L. “Rudy” Long, of St. Charles, MO, baptized into the hope of Christ's resurrection, passed away Friday, December 22, 2023, at the age of 86. Beloved husband of 59 years to Evelyn Long; cherished son of the late Fred Long and Mary (nee. Griffen) Long-Boxdorfer; devoted father of Kelly Long, Kathryn Mason, and Alison Long; loving grandfather of Ashley, Alex, Kaleigh, Mackenzie, Kassandra, Marshall, Olivia, and Clara; precious great grandfather of Jonathan, Abigail, Jackson, and Andrew. He also leaves a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and business associates. Rudy was preceded in death by his granddaughter Elizabeth, his brother Dean Long, and three sisters, Juanita Weber, Shelby Ford, and Barbara Huggins. 

Rudy was a proud and honorable US Army veteran who served in Germany and Vietnam. He found joy from precious times shared with his grandchildren. He also dedicated himself to a career in the medical supply industry from the age of 14, which developed into leadership positions. He was a mentor and friend to all who knew him. 

Rudy leaves behind a legacy marked by unwavering dedication, strength, love, and a witty sense of humor. During his lifetime he discovered satisfaction in his pursuits of woodworking and deer hunting. Rudy had a fondness for traveling to Colorado with his wife Evelyn to enjoy family and explore the beauty and history of the state. His departure leaves a void that will be profoundly felt by all fortunate enough to have known and loved him. 

Memorials may be made in Rudy’s name to Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation and Tunnel of Towers Foundation https://t2t.org/2023-season-of-hope/
