To send flowers in memory of Noxon Tommy Long, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Noxon was born on December 31, 2018 to Tyler and Kaemyn Long and was the light of their lives, moving mountains from the day he arrived. Noxon came into this world in a hurry, surprising his parents three weeks early. He loved being sung to and music was always present in his life; he enjoyed listening to Jim Croce records from the day he came home from the hospital. Noxon’s cautious looks left everyone wondering what was on his mind. He was fascinated with ceiling fans, lights, and his momma’s and daddy’s faces. Noxon’s light touched everyone who knew him and will continue to shine in those who hold him in their hearts.
Noxon was preceded in death by his grandpa, William E. “Tommy” Long, his great-great grandparents Lois Sandefur, Ray Howell, Amy and Phil Cyr, Fannie and Fred Carper, and Oscar and Lilian King; and his great grandparents Charles and Vernice King.
Noxon is survived by his parents, Tyler and Kaemyn, Missoula; grandparents Mark and Desiree Meagher of Bigfork and Kristina Long of Kingman, Arizona; great-great grandmother Laura Howell of Frenchtown; great grandparents Renie and Jim Cyr of Frenchtown and Vicky and Herb “Pidge” Meagher of Thompson Falls; aunts and uncles and their families: Raelynn and Rob Cameron, and cousins Everett and Ettalyn, Missoula; Kallister Meagher and Mitchel Harsh, Missoula; Nicole and Brad Hutchison and cousin Xander, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas; and Wayne Armstrong, Fort Drum, NY, currently serving in Afghanistan. Noxon is also survived by great aunts and uncles, cousins, numerous other extended family members, and his Wildland Fire family, US Forest Service – Lolo National Forest.
A celebration of Noxon’s beautiful life will occur on Friday March 15, 2019 at 3:00 pm at Garden City Funeral Home, Missoula. Family and friends are invited to continue the celebration at Imagine Nation Brewing, Missoula. Noxon’s family wishes all who can to come celebrate with us.
