Mr. Alberto Long, Jr., 51, entered the kingdom of our heavenly Father on Saturday, July 3, 2010 at his residence surrounded by his loving family.

Alberto was a devoted husband, a wonderful son, a loving father, a caring brother, and a loyal friend.

His passions were his family, followed distantly by his profession.

Anytime that an opportunity came up to chat at the office his favorite topic was always that of his family.

He was profoundly proud of his children.

He recently boasted, “My wife and I are truly blessed to have such wonderful kids”.

His son Alberto III was recently accepted to attend the University of Texas at Austin where he plans on majoring in Journalism.

His daughter Cecilia is a senior at United High School where she serves as a co-captain on the Lariette Squad.

Cecilia was also recently selected as junior Ms. Webb County.

Alberto and Yolanda were known for offering their home for parties and social gatherings.

They were always the perfect hosts.

Alberto also liked to invite his friends to his parents’ house for lunch to share a delicious homemade meal prepared by his mom.

Alberto was also well known for being in tune with the political pulse of our communities, both on the American and the Mexican side of the border.

In fact, he was frequently called upon for political advice by many friends in elected office and by those seeking an elected office.

Alberto was blessed with many friends and he was loyal to all.

There was never a dull conversation when he was around.

He always had an interesting comment to make or a unique perspective to add.

One of his most admirable qualities was that he liked to listen to other people’s opinions.

It was very common for him to ask, “Did you hear about “XYZ”. What do you think about it?”

Alberto truly enjoyed spending time at the office.

Mr. Long (as he was affectionately and respectfully referred to at work) was a skilled and talented court interpreter, as well as a dedicated court bailiff.

He also served as the voice for the 406th District Court in his capacity of court liaison.

Mr. Long took his responsibilities extremely serious.

He always ensured the public was well informed of the “goings on” at the court, while at the same time ensuring that no rules were compromised and that victims’ privacy rights were protected.

He was a true professional.  Alberto will be greatly missed by all who knew him…
