Brandon Michael Long

August 22, 1980 - October 05, 2018

Brandon Michael Long, 38, of Pawleys Island, South Carolina, died Oct. 5, 2018, in the Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Born on Aug. 22, 1980 in Cumberland, Brandon was the son of Mark Craig Long and Lisa Lynn (Tucker) Strauss. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Edgar "Barney" and Wanda Tucker.
Brandon graduated from Allegany High School in 1998 where he played football for the Campers. Brandon most recently worked construction in South Carolina, but his true passion was cooking. He worked in many different capacities at various eateries along the Strand. Often working more than full time hours, he still managed to attend college in nontraditional fashion allowing him to successfully complete studies and receive a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from the University of Phoenix on Feb. 29, 2012. He also received an Associate Arts Degree in business on Oct. 31, 2009.
Surviving relatives besides Brandon's parents are his paternal grandparents, Ronnie and Elaine Long, Cumberland; his step father, Dr. Howard Strauss, Cumberland; his step mother, Roseanna Long, Martinsburg, W.Va.; his sister and brother -in-law, Desiree and Rich Magee and their daughters, Adelaide and Daphne, California; his half-brothers, Isaac Strauss, Maryland and Harrison Strauss, California; his Uncle Rodney and Aunt Nancy Long and their sons, Peyton and Ryan, Maryland; his Aunt Jennifer and Uncle Barry McClune and their daughter and son, Mecaila and Aiden, Virginia; his Uncle Matt and Aunt Joyce Tucker and their daughter Tiffany, South Carolina; and his Uncle Jeff and Aunt Terry Tucker and their son Joshua, South Carolina.
Brandon enjoyed all types of outdoor activities. His hobbies included snowboarding, skiing, swimming, boating and surf fishing. But in more recent years his life revolved around anything to do with sand and salt water, as he truly loved the beach.
Brandon was a people person and was especially good with his younger relatives. Most people that new him recognized his gentle and loving spirit. It should come as no surprise that he donated his organs to "Sharing Hope" with his focus remaining to help others, even through his demise.
His remains were sent to Lewis Crematory in Myrtle Beach. A small memorial service will be held at a later date for family and a few close friends. His ashes will then be taken back to Myrtle Beach to be cast out at sea.

I just wanted to express my condolences to the family. May you find comfort in knowing that God promises a time when sickness, death and pain will be no more. The scripture at Revelation 21:4 tells us God will wipe away all these things. The bible gives us hope and something to look forward to.
