Obituary

On Wednesday, January 4, 2023, James W. Long, 55, beloved father, brother, and friend passed away. Jim was a painter by profession, but was active in all types of construction throughout his life.  He had a love for all people.  When you walked into a room where Jim was, he would be among the first to greet you, and strike up a conversation.  His distinct laugh was infectious and filled any room.  In recent years, Jim moved back to Libby, Montana, to be closer to his son and grandchildren, Chris Goucher, and his family.  He enjoyed their company and watching his grandchildren play.  He loved the simple life, living in a trailer on his son’s property.  Later in life, Jim struggled to get around, and especially looked forward to drives with his best friend, Jerry Johnson.  Jim would always say “I don’t need much”, and was happiest just hanging out by the campfire, having a few drinks with friends, telling jokes, and playing games (of course cribbage was his favorite).

Jim is survived by his son Chris Goucher and Chris’s wife, Jennifer; and their children Alexia, Leanna, Christina, and Dale; his mother, Linda Garrett; his brothers, Dan Long, Ken Long, and Gary Fenton.

Jim left us too soon, but with a treasure of fond memories and an abundance of love in our hearts. Jimbo we will all miss you dearly!

A celebration of life service for Jim will be held Saturday, February 4, 2023, 3:00-8:00 p.m. at the Libby V.F.W. 114 West 2nd Street, Libby, Montana.  All friends and family are welcome.  Please bear with us as we navigate through this difficult time.  Services are under the care of Schnackenberg Funeral Home of Libby.
