On November 20th 1951 he married Shirley Freshour who preceded him in death on February 24, 1991. Logan attended South Bend Riley High School after which he served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. After his discharge Logan served an apprenticeship as a Tinsmith in South Bend, Indiana working for Air Flow Sheet Metal. His work with Air Flow eventually brought him to Kokomo, Indiana in 1959 after which he went on to work at Delco Electronics in 1971 where he continued to work until his retirement in 1998. He was a member at St Joan of Arc Catholic Church where he attended regularly until he went to live at Bloom Senior Living in Kokomo. He enjoyed traveling and playing golf for as long as he could and made many friends along the way as he left an impression upon many. After Shirley’s passing , Logan met a very special woman named Helen Isaac who he spent many wonderful years with until her death in 2014. Logan enjoyed attending hockey games and playing fast pitch softball in his younger days. During his lifetime he was on the Indian Heights volunteer Fire Dept , and involved for many years in Little League baseball as he coached all of his sons at one time or another. After the boys grew up he attended hundreds of games along with his wife Shirley watching all of their boys play sports of all kinds. He reentered the LL baseball scene to help coach his oldest grandson to a Little League City Championship which he was especially proud of after which he gave up coaching all together.

We are sorry to hear of the loss of your Dad. Your family and my family was blessed to have had great Dads and Mothers. We were the lucky ones! I have many good memories of your dad and the other special men at Indian Heights during our playing days at Mohawk park. We had so much fun and were taught so much. I still can see your mom rounding up and chasing your brothers at the ball park. Tell all of your family we are thinking of all of them. God bless Ty and Dallas Calloway
