Today LONG, Bruce •Leslie Bruce Long (known to his friends as Bruce) died peacefully on January 6th, 2017. Bruce was 87 years old. •Bruce was born in Louisville Kentucky, where he earned a degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Louisville. In 1952, Bruce married his high school sweetheart, Mary Louise, and they raised three children: Ellen, Bruce Jr. and Holli. Bruce's adventurous spirit was shared with his children. Together, they learned to ski, sail, camp and hike. He also loved to sing. He had a song for every occasion and this passion for music has passed to three generations of musicians. Bruce began his career at Bendix Corporation in Baltimore in radar design. He traveled worldwide with Raytheon, Sanders, ITT and Emerson Electric holding a variety of positions including Director of Research and Director of Engineering. Bruce loved his work and was forever fascinated with mechanical engineering of all kinds. As a teenager he built his own ham radio, which took up almost half of his bedroom. He enjoyed tinkering with watches, cars, boats, bicycles, (in later years, computers) and just about anything that had moving parts. He was often the 'Go to Guy' for friends and family who needed things fixed. For his 50th birthday, his wife Mary gave him an introductory flying lesson. Enamored with the challenge, he started studying for a pilot's license, bought a small Cessna plane, earned his instrument rating and encouraged Mary to fly as well. He and Mary had many adventures with family and friends in that little Cessna. After a long and successful career on the east coast, Bruce was transferred to California where he later retired and made his home. Bruce and Mary loved Santa Barbara, and both became very active in a number of organizations including the Master Board of Shadow Hills and Cosmopolitan Club. Bruce also enjoyed tennis, bridge, singing in a barbershop quartet, organizing social events and telling jokes. Like songs, he will always be remembered for having a joke for every occasion. Mary, his beloved wife of 54 years, passed away in 2005. Bruce then married Jennifer Scott Long, and she blessed him with a second family. They were married for eleven years until his death. Bruce liked nothing better than family outings, and spent his last years enjoying parties and gatherings where he would often burst into unprovoked, spontaneous song. Bruce's family will always remember how much he loved all children. He worked as a mentor for many local youths, and his calm demeanor, easy laugh and infinite patience made him a source of strength and stability and a wonderful teacher. Bruce is survived by his wife Jennifer and her family, his own three children, eight grandchildren and four great grandchildren. A service to celebrate Bruce's life will be held at All Saints By-The-Sea at 11:00 am on January 28, 2017 . In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be given to Santa Barbara Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care at: VNHC Foundation 509 East Montecito Street, Suite 200 Santa Barbara, CA 93103 or
