We felt a great loss in our community on Feb. 29, 2008 when John F. Long passed away.  Mr. Long will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.  Our thoughts go with his family and associates.
He was respected and loved by thousands. Mr. Long master planned and built most early Maryvale and was recognized nationally as one of the top home builders and innovators of the era.  We continue his work of making Maryvale a great and vibrant place.
