Grandmaster Bob Long was a respected and loved member of the "World Head of Family Sokeship Council". Our deepest sympathy to his family.
I am very sorry. I enjoyed seeing Robertl at the office, we always had a good time, all of us laughing and talking. My prayers are for you and your family.
To the Long family: My condolences go out to all of you during this difficult time. I met Shihan Long at a few tournaments over the years and knew of his expertise in the martial arts. He was a warrior who will never be forgotton. Bless his soul as he is now with God looking down on his family knowing all is well. God bless to the entire Long family and to students of Shihan Bob Long.
We all think of Bob with many fond memories may these happy thoughts help you all through the difficult times. Our prayers are with all of you.
Bob was one of the best individuals we have had the privilege of knowing. A teacher, a mentor and best of all a friend. A very sad time. We will miss you deeply Sheehan.
Too soon. Your teachings will be with me always.
We are truly sorry for your loss. He was a great man and a pleasure to work with. He mad us laugh constantly. He will truly be missed.
I worked with Bob at the EP Rec Department longer ago than I care to admit, and he was a lovely man, with a great personality and sense of humor. My deepest sympathy for your loss.
The mastery of Bob Long has shaped the lives of many and will continue to do so for generations to come.......
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. We hold many fond memories of Bob from the EP years.
