Obituary

London Long's precious life ended December 24th, 2021. He now rests in eternal happiness. (PEACE) He is proceeded in death by his brother Logan McCloud, cousin Devon Birdsong-Havis and maternal grandparents Henry and Ethel Long. 

On July 16th, 2001, London Lamonte' Long was born to Melanie, and she received him into her arms with joy. Glover McCloud wanted to father London as his own son, so he joined Melanie and together they were a family.

London's short journey in this world was full. He was introduced to God at a young age, and he learned to reverence His name. London was taught the importance and purpose of baptism. During a Baptismal Ceremony in Michigan City's Lake Michigan, he was immersed. London loved his family and friends and when asked, he would rise to the call of duty. He loved music (rapping), fishing, walking trails, running up hills, and working out in the gym. London attended Marquette High School for two years and while there he was given the opportunity and played on the basketball team. He later transferred to Michigan City High School where he graduated and received his High School Diploma. London spent his summer working with his grandfather who groomed him to work hard. He furthered his work ethics by working with his dad learning carpentry skills.

London was a very handsome young man, and he respected his elders. His smile was inviting, and his hugs lingered.
