Randolph R. Delong of Mahopac, NY passed away on February 21, 2019 after a courageous 3 year battle against brain cancer; he was 68 years old. He was born in Ossining, NY on November 10, 1950, the son of Walter and Vivian (neé Palmer) Delong and stepson of Alfred Cronin. On February 4, 1970 he married Mary Wilke and they were blessed with 3 daughters. Randy (Gpa) worked for the NY Telephone Company as a lineman before retiring.

In addition to being a devoted husband, father, and grandfather with a great love for his family, Randy also had a love for motorcycles, classic cars, as well as rock and roll music. He loved spending his free time attending car club meetings and showing off his prized cars at various car shows. He also took great pride in his extensive collection of music and enjoyed playing his hundreds of records and cd's. Randy loved spending time with his "Best friend" Max (his dog), until Max passed away in 2013. Per Randy's request he will be taking his best friend with him as Max's ashes and Randy will be laid to rest together. Randy was a genuine, honest man with a huge heart, and an encyclopedia for a brain. He was great at giving advice and knew everything about anything and then some. Randy was the one everyone called when they had questions about everything from cars to medical advice, and anything in between. He was full of humor and would tell jokes and stories that would leave a smile on everyone's face. Even during his illness, he kept his witty, sarcastic sense of humor, which helped him and his family through that difficult time. He will be greatly missed.

Randy is survived by his loving wife Mary of 49 years, daughter Heather Dzubak and her husband Edward, daughter Dawn Delong, and daughter Randi Ruocco and her husband Albert. He is also survived by his sister Kelly Cronin Mancini and his grandchildren Leah, Dominique, A.J., Alexa, Nicholas, Jenna, Aidan, Ryan, Anthony, and Kaylee.

All are welcome to attend a visitation on Monday, February 25th from 5-7 PM at the Joseph J. Smith Funeral Home in Mahopac, NY. A funeral service will be held cryptside on Tuesday, February 26th at 11 AM at Hillside Cemetery in Cortlandt Manor, NY. Entombment will follow.

In lieu of flowers, please make memorial contributions in his name to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, www.stjude.org.
