Pamela “Lil' Pammy” Long, 57 of Marathon, passed away September 24 after a long and courageous battle with MSA (Multiple System Atrophy.)
Pam was born August 26, 1956 and spent the last 37 years of her life with her husband, companion and soul mate, Capt. Bart Mavity. She is best known for her smile and sunny disposition, along with her work in the Keys hospitality industry. From her early years working at the Doghouse and Dockside, she went on to be the manager of the Anglers Lounge at the old Faro Blanco resort in the 80’s and 90’s. After that, she went on to oversee the food, beverage and entertainment at Zane Grey Lounge at the World Wide Sportsman before finishing her career by building the Bluewater Restaurant and Tiki at the Islander Resort from the ground up and creating one of the Keys best wedding venues.
Throughout the years, Pam mentored many who were getting their foothold in the hospitality industry and saw to it that her friends and customers always had the cold beverage of their choice in front of them. She will be fondly remembered and missed by many. Besides her husband, Bart, she is survived by her mother and stepfather Ernie and Curtis Bloodsworth and sister Janet Towers of Cambridge MD, along with her nephew Jamie Middleton of Delaware.
A celebration of Life and benefit will be held on Sunday, November 15th at 2 p.m. at the Lobster Crawl Bar & Grill located at MM 70 bayside in the Fiesta Key RV Resort. There will be food, drink, music, raffles, etc., as well as good friends and people who you haven’t seen in years all coming together to celebrate Lil’ Pammy’s life and show support for Bart.

HOK: “I first met Pammy when she was working at Zane Grey in the late 90’s, early 2000’s. We spent a lot of time there back in the days of the Martini Club. She brought a touch of class to the place, and always had a smile.”
