George Walter Long

August 5, 2022, 94, Goldsboro –

George Walter Long, 94, entered into Heaven as his faith became sight on Friday evening at Willow Creek Nursing Home. What we can picture dimly, George now sees clearly.

George was born in Bladen County to the late Carl and Katie Long on May 16, 1928. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Lottie Dunegan Long, sisters, Edna Earl Carr, Marie Hinnant, Frances Christopher and Lora Wood; and brothers, Billy Long and Leo Long.

Though both George and his wife, Lottie, were blind, the two combined their strengths to lead and care for each other, feats that were truly remarkable to witness. For many years, George was a member of the Goldsboro Host Lions Club. He faithfully worshiped his Lord with his family at Goldsboro Friends Meeting.

George managed the Kemp Furniture Company vending service for approximately 43 years. After retiring, he later worked with the North Carolina Division of Services for the Blind.

A graveside service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, August 10, 2022 in Evergreen Memorial Cemetery with Rev. Andy Stovall officiating. The family will greet friends following the service at the cemetery.

George is survived by his son, George D. Long of Goldsboro; sister, Joann Parrish and many nieces and nephews he loved very much.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to the Goldsboro Host Lions Club, P.O. Box 308, Goldsboro, NC 27533 or to The Seeing Eye, Inc., 1 Seeing Eye Way, Morristown, NJ 07960.

Services are entrusted to Seymour Funeral Home and Cremation Service. Online condolences may be sent to the family at
