Obituary

Obituary for David D. DeLong

David D. DeLong, 90, of Wyomissing, passed away Sunday, December 29, 2019 at the Reading Hospital. He was the widower of Zina (Snyder) DeLong, with whom he shared over 50 years of marriage.

A Reading native, David was a son of the late Edwin and Caroline (Marsh) DeLong. He graduated from Reading High School and went on to attain a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Duke University. He later studied Education at Millersville.

Until his retirement in the early 90’s, David worked as an instructor of industrial arts at Schuylkill Valley High School. For 35 years he volunteered as the school’s golf coach. He also served as a ski club chaperone. He will be remembered by many for the week-end excursions to Vermont he arranged for the ski club.

A very handy man talented at home improvement projects, David painted countless homes throughout Berks County. In his later years, he was known for his walks with his dog, Buddy, around the Highlands at Wyomissing.

David is survived by his sons, David S. DeLong of Harrisburg, and William D. DeLong, husband of Dina N. DeLong, of Shillington; granddaughter Savannah C. DeLong of Shillington; four nieces; one nephew.

He was predeceased by two brothers.

Prayers will be said for David as part of Bausman Memorial United Church of Christ’s Sunday worship service on January 5, 2020 at 10:15 am. The church is located at 1064 Penn Ave, Wyomissing, PA 19610.

In lieu of flowers, David’s family asks that contributions be made to the Animal Rescue League of Berks County, 58 Kennel Rd, Birdsboro, PA 19508. Edward J. Kuhn Funeral Home, Inc., is assisting with arrangements. Condolences may be expressed at www.kuhnfuneralhomes.com.

My husband, Richard and I were bridge friends of Dave and Zina. We had many wonderful times together, and I am saddened of Dave's passing. I so enjoyed his stories of the antics the dogs presented! My condolences to the entire family and God Bless.

Dave and Savannah and family - What sad news to hear, but what a fabulous life he lived. Every morning as I waited at the bus stop with Laura and Andrew to head off to elementary school, your dad/ grandpop would walk by with his beloved dog. He would ALWAYS stop to chat and quiz the kids on something or tell them a joke. I can picture him walking with his hands clasped behind his back, just enjoying the beauty of the morning and the blessing of his dog, and the kids and the neighborhood he loved. What a good man! Sending you many prayers - keep all your wonderful memories in your heart!
Peace and Blessings, Kim and Rich Tetley

Dave was my golf coach at Schuylkill Valley High School in 1964. It was the first year that SVHS had a golf team.
Recently, we reconnected at Wednesday evening church dinners in West Lawn.
He set a great example - and had as much kindness, goodness and integrity as anyone that I've been lucky enough to know.
Rest in Peace

Tom Kocher.
