Obituary for Richard F. Longe

SHELDON – Richard F. Longe, age 94, passed away on Friday, February 8, 2019 at his home in Sheldon.

Richard married the love of his life, Shirley (Taylor) Longe, on May 27, 1953. The two were inseparable and enjoyed doing everything side-by-side including traveling to country festivals, playing cards, sitting on the front porch, and completing work around the farm.
