December 26, 1951 - December 22, 2021
Carroll Thomas Long, was a caring husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend. He left this world on Wednesday, December 22, 2021 at Frederick Memorial Hospital in Frederick at age 69. He was born to the late Joseph H. and Clarise Carr Long on December 26, 1951. He was the beloved husband of Patricia A. Long of New Market, and previously of Sykesville, and the proud father of Tracey E. Garcia, and the late Timothy Christopher Long. He bravely served in the Army National Guard of Maryland and was a heavy equipment mechanic with BGE. He was a man’s man who enjoyed fishing, woodworking, and building big things. He loved to use his skills to help his family and when visiting them, couldn’t help but look around and find things to “fix” or improve with his carpentry skills. His long term battle with serious medical issues illustrated his perseverance and courage in facing life challenges with a smile. At the age of 33, he suffered major complications from a brain surgery and was forced to relearn basic life skills as well as become re-acquainted with his immediate family members. His ability to approach these struggles with a sense of humor and treat each day as precious was an inspiration and enabled his family to experience each day with him as a gift. Like his father before him, he was always reliable for his corny “dad” jokes. Even as his health declined, he was an enthusiastic grandfather who would not hesitate to get on the floor and play with his grandkids. Surviving in addition to his wife and daughter, are grandchildren Lucas X. Garcia and Samantha Z. Garcia, brother Joseph K. Long and his wife Charla, sister Elizabeth M. Beachum and her husband Gary, nephew Bradford Beachum, nieces Katie Beachum and Nellie Jo Long, and extended family Sandra and Hugh Kendall, Lynda and Wayne Foley, niece Emily and David Moynihan, nephew Steven and Jan Kendall, and many great nieces and nephews. The family will receive friends on Monday, January 3, 2022 at Haight Funeral Home & Chapel, 6416 Sykesville Rd., Sykesville from 10 am until the start of the funeral service at 12 noon. Interment in Emmanuel United Methodist Church Cemetery in Laurel.
