Richard K. Long (Rick) 69, of Plainfield, passed away on December 11, 2020. Rick was born May 28, 1951 in Indianapolis to Russell and Marjorie (Bayliff) Long. He graduated from Plainfield High School in 1969 and attended Purdue University. Rick worked for the State of Indiana at the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute and the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. He also worked for the City of Indianapolis. Later employment included various sales positions and work as a mortgage broker for Ace Mortgage. Most recently, Rick was actively involved with local real estate investing and house flipping. During his son Cory’s younger years, Rick coached many Plainfield youth sports teams. Following that, he volunteered in the press box during Plainfield High School football games. Rick was a member of Plainfield United Methodist Church and B.P.O. Elks #2186, where he held several offices. Rick enjoyed time with his family–from recent trips to Disney World and Mexico, to a day at the pool, to reading with his grandsons in his favorite chair. He loyally, and vocally, followed the Boilermakers, Cubs and Colts with his son Cory, while Connie and he found vacations in Florida to be welcome winter breaks. Known for his quick wit, he frequently met with friends for a game of cards or a lengthy visit at a local restaurant. There will be no funeral service at this time, with a Celebration of Life to be held at a later date. Rick was preceded in death by his father Russell Long and is survived by his mother Marjorie Long. Rick is also survived by his wife Connie (Kaestner) Long, son Cory Long (Julie), and beloved grandsons Logan and Hudson Long. Other survivors include sister Becky VanWanzeele of Plainfield, brother Randy Long of Redondo Beach, California, and sister-in-law Sharyn Warnock of Avon. In addition, nieces and nephews include Tim VanWanzeele (Tara), Curt VanWanzeele (Julie), Shelley (VanWanzeele) Moyers (Derek), Chad Warnock, and Dean Warnock (Patty Homoky).
