Peacefully, on August 11, 2018, James (Jim) Harold William Long at the age of 62 passed away in Ottawa’s Elizabeth Bruyère Hospital. Son of the late Alfred and late Florence Long (Mosher). Brother of Pamela Findlay (John) of Barrie, Brian Long (Patricia) of Ottawa and Susan Yach (Ron) of Shawville. Jim is lovingly remembered by many nieces and nephews and his friends Lisa Bell, Frank Kovalyk and Morgan Adams. He is also fondly remembered by his many friends in the Ottawa Valley whom he met working for Valley Heritage Radio and as President of the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame.
A celebration of Jim’s life will take place in October 2018 at a date and place to be determined.
Jim’s family want to particularly thank Jim’s other family, the Valley Heritage Radio’s Board of Directors, staff and volunteers for all the support Jim and his family received during this difficult time.
Jim may be gone but his passion for country music lives forever in his heart.
