Kenneth Luther Long passed away suddenly on December 16th, 2022, after losing his ongoing battle with addiction. He was born on May 16, 1980, in Coushatta, LA.
He survived by his mother, Pamela Summers, his sister, Michelle Inman, brother-in-law David Inman, nephews Kayleb and Judah, grandmother, Louise Long. He is also survived by his two fur babies, Jolly and Molly, aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends. He is preceded in death by his father, Robert Long and his stepfather, Jimmy Summers.
This world truly lost a special person who would give his everything to help those in need as he had a very loving heart. He loved the mountains, hiking and the beach. One of his favorite things was spending time in the Arkansas foothills with his grandparents. Kenneth truly enjoyed the simple life.
This world burns a little less bright without his presence. We will miss him until the day we join him but now we know he is no longer suffering from the sadness and depression that plagued him at the end. He is finally at peace resting in the arms of Jesus.
A celebration of Kenneth’s life will be held on Saturday, January 14th at 3:00pm at Creston Baptist Church, 5315 LA-9, Creston, LA 71070. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to My Brother’s House (a non-profit 501C3 Organization) would be appreciated. Donations can be made by check or money order and mailed to PO Box 696, Muenster, Texas 76252. The Brother’s House is a sober living establishment that Kenneth lived in for over a year. He was able to build solid relationships with other men that also battled addiction.
The family asks that you educate yourself and others about addiction. Nobody asks or wants to be an addict. Help stop the shame and stigma of addiction. Kenneth, like all the others suffering from this disease, was so much more than his addiction.
To all that have given their love and support to both Kenneth and his family, we thank you.
Sweet friend you will always be forever in my heart. I give your family all the prayers I can as we all deal with your loss. I miss you so much every day but I’m glad God gave me you as an angel. Till we meet in heaven watch over all that loved you.
I’m so sorry for your loss Pam. I only met Kenneth once at a Thanksgiving dinner but he was quiet and sweet. May God help ease your pain. All my love to you ❤️
Pam you are an amazing woman. My heart breaks for your broken heart. Your love for your husband and your son will live on and was treasured by them in life here. Until you meet again- you have us who live you to lean on
Prayers and love
I will always have a special place in my heart for Kenneth. I will forever cherish the good memories we had and I am sorry he could not find his peace here on this Earth, but I’m thankful that he is no longer suffering. We never know the burdens or demons someone is battling behind the brave mask they sometimes have or the mood changes they go through. It is not our place to judge but to support and love. Even when you know you can’t always fix things. I hope I did the best by Kenneth that I possibly could. RIP til we meet again. Mrs. Pam I’m always around if you want to talk. I am so very sorry for your loss I know he was very special to you and he loved you very much. 💜

Pam, I know words can’t suffice at this time, but know that we’re praying for you and everyone who loves Kenneth. I love you.
My heart is heavy, I still can’t believe you are no longer with us. I will miss our many conversations. I will continue to pray for you and your family. We have been friends since elementary school and even graduated together, as I reflect over our lives you have always been one of those people who has always been there.
Love you my friend, take your rest.
