Jeremy Thomas “Pork Chop” Long, 41, passed away unexpectedly Thursday, April 21,2022.
Jeremy was born Sept. 30, 1980, in Supply, to Rita Long Sellers and the late Thomas Dale Long. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, James Michael Thomas and Deane Cofer Thomas and paternal grandparents, Dewey Thomas Long and Sarah (Jettie) Cribb Long.
Pork Chop was a good man with a good heart that you couldn’t help but love. He had a personality that made it easy for him to make friends everywhere he went. He would go out of his way to help anyone in need and asked for nothing in return. He was loved by all and will truly be missed.
Jeremy enjoyed being outdoors and spent many years working jobs such as farming and dredging that allowed him to do just that. He worked many years for Brunswick County Public Utilities and also worked for White Funeral Home and Cremation Service. He was a member of Shallotte Lodge #727 A.F. & A.M. and was also former chapter president of the NWTF Brunswick County Longbeards.
The family will receive friends from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, April 26 at White Funeral and Cremation Service, 3660 Express Dr., Shallotte. A graveside funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 27, in the Ward Cemetery in Longwood with Rev. Anthony Clemmons officiating. Masonic Rites will be accorded by Shallotte Lodge #727 A.F. & A.M.
Survivors include his sons, Thomas Drake Long and Lucas Avery Long, both of Shallotte; wife, Kelley Tanner of Florence, S.C.; stepchildren, Alex Allen and Kalice Keith of Florence, S.C.; stepfather, Lewis Sellers of Lake Waccamaw; one sister Jennifer Long Green (Eric) of Lake Waccamaw; one stepsister Shannon Sellers Sluyter (Alex) of Myrtle Beach, S.C.; aunt, Carolyn Roberson; and uncle, Ray Thomas of Williamston.
