The Long Family
We are Patty and Randy Long of Recycled Granite Tidewater. We “fell into” the granite recycling family quite by surprise. Patty was looking for a good, sturdy external facing for the outdoor kitchen she has been building for Randy for the past several summers. After examining the faux-stone and natural stone façade materials available, Patty stumbled upon the Recycled Granite website and was taken aback by the beauty and versatility of the product. Well, one thing led to another, and here we are, ready to cover Southeastern Virginia and Northeastern NC with split granite tiles, pavers and other products.
Patty is an experienced RN who currently works as an Assistant Professor for a local college. She has a M.Ed. from Regent University and is currently working on her dissertation for an Ed.D., also from Regent.
Randy is a veteran Navy Submariner with extensive experience in shipbuilding, design and repair, as well as shipboard instruction for U. S. Naval personnel and concrete construction, sales and mix design.
Patty and Randy, after being active in several ministries for their local church, became foster parents in 2006, and, since then, have hosted 25 children in their home. Patty and Randy have also adopted two of their former foster children. Sebastian, now 10, and Talitha, now 9 round out this happy, if somewhat unusual family (oh, can’t forget their wonderful pooch, Kasey).
