Furlong and step-son Brian Furlong, Andrée Valentino Long and her husband Edward A. Long and their daughters Samantha Rae Long and her fiancé Justin Murray and Amanda Kaye Long and her partner Kevin Curley and his cherished great-grandson, Dean C. Murray.  He is additionally survived by a half-sister and was predeceased by several other half-siblings.  Friends may greet the family Friday, March 22, 2024 from 4-6 p.m. in the Spear-Miller Funeral Home, 39 South Benson Road, Fairfield.  A prayer service will conclude the visitation.  Entombment will be private at the mausoleum of Oak Lawn Cemetery, Fairfield.
