Jessie Frank Long, 80, of Tompkinsville, KY passed away peacefully Saturday, April 9th, at Monroe County Medical Center.
Jessie was born in Tompkinsville, KY on January 28, 1942, a son of the late Mitchell B. Long and Helen Francis Long Daniel.
He was a proud member of the Poplar Log Missionary Baptist Church. Jessie will be remembered by most for his love and skill for the game of pool, being a farm hand to those in the community that needed him and his strong resemblance to Willie Nelson. He was a kind man who loved his family and enjoyed being around anyone who would sit and talk to him, especially if they brought him a cup of McDonald's coffee. Jessie took a ride from nearly everyone in Monroe County because he never knew a stranger.
Jessie is survived by his nieces, Janice Reagan (Harold), of Tompkinsville, KY; Karen Bartley (Terry) of Tompkinsville, KY; Teresa Copas (Chris), of Tompkinsville, KY; Renea' Hunter (Jeff) of Tompkinsville, KY; Lori Barlow (Chris) of Glasgow, KY; Kristie Long, Michele Houchens (David) of Fountain Run, KY; and Misty Gentry, of Tompkinsville, KY; one nephew, Calvin Jones (Missy) of Tompkinsville, KY; two brother-in-laws, Cecil Jones and Harley Proffitt. As well as several great and great-great nieces and nephews are special friends, Wayne King, Jim Shirley and Barry Houchens.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by three sisters, Emogene Jones, Betty Trobaugh and husband Elvin and Judy Ann Proffitt; one brother, Darrell Long and wife Leona Gayle Long; and one niece, Sherri Diane Proffitt.
