Obituary for William DeLong

William H. DeLong, 68, of Stow joined the Lord after a silent struggle with pancreatic cancer.
Prior to marrying the love of his life in 1973, Bill was born September 23, 1948 in Columbus, graduated from Bishop Watterson HS ('66), and earned his degree in Electronics Engineering from Ohio Institute of Technology ('72). 
An automotive enthusiast, Bill was a member of SCCA racing teams in the early 70s. He also fondly remembered his time with Wang Laboratories in the 1980s, where his project teams worked on cutting edge technology. That said, it was his lifelong love of the outdoors that left an indelible mark on future generations. Whether fishing, watching sporting events, playing catch, or working in the yard, those quiet moments are where Bill connected with so many of us.

Bill is survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Sandra (Kutney), his son Aaron, daughter-in-law Cynthia (neé Meyer), and grandchildren Tomasina, Aaron James, and Morgan. He also leaves behind numerous siblings-in-law, nieces, and nephews with whom he shared unique, valued relationships.

The family will receive visitors on Friday, May 5 from 6-8 PM at Dunn Quigley Stow Chapel (3333 Kent Rd. at Rt. 91). A memorial Mass will be held at Holy Family Church (3179 Kent Rd., Stow) on Saturday, May 6 at 11AM.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to UH Seidman Cancer Center or Hospice of the Western Reserve, whose care of Bill in his final days was greatly appreciated.
