After a long illness, Johnny Carson Long passed away at Seasons Hospice on Saturday, Dec. 13, 2014, at the age of 83.

Johnny was born Dec. 27, 1930, to Thurston and Irene (Rowe) Long. He grew up in the Cherry Grove area, where he attended country school, later moving to Spring Valley, where he attended school. On June 12, 1951, Johnny was united in marriage to Yvonne Broadwater at the Assembly of God Church in Spring Valley. He worked for Interstate Power for 10 years. Later he and his wife took over the Hi-Way Cafe in Spring Valley from 1962 to 1966. In 1969 he and his wife moved to Rochester, where he began work for Foster Electric, and later became an electrical inspector for one year. In 1982 he retired because of ill health.

He is survived by his wife of 63 years; a daughter, Pamela Jean (David Peterson) of Chatfield; two granddaughters, Nikol (Scott) Mix of Farmington and Michelle (Tom) Root of Chatfield; five great-grandchildren, Tommy, Aaron and Zach Mix and Paige and Layne Root; two brothers, William (Karen) Long of Shakopee; Robert (Kay) Long of Cumberland, Wis.; a sister-in-law, Karen Long of Spring Valley; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, a brother and five sisters.

His wife was his caregiver. He loved to read, do jigsaw puzzles, working with cars, and spent 13 winters in Lake Havasu, Ariz. Johnny loved his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and also loved going out to eat with friends.

At his request, there will be no services until a later date. His ashes will be buried in Spring Valley Cemetery.
