On February 4, 2019, Asa made his final journey to be with his loving wife, Marilyn, and his Lord and Savior. He was born on August 5, 1934 in Corpus Christi, Texas to John Douglas and Mary Alice Griffin Logan. He graduated in 1952 from W. B. Ray High School in Corpus Christi, attended DelMar College in Corpus Christi and Texas A&I in Kingsville. He was affectionately called “Pops” by his grandchildren and great grands, and always gave them “knuckles.” He was employed as a paperboy during his teenage years and college days by the Corpus Christi Caller-Times. Asa married his high school sweetheart, Marilyn Meyer, on September 30, 1955. Their first date was at the original Whataburger in Corpus Christi. Asa was employed by Central Power and Light in 1952 and retired after 40 years of service. Asa was a member of John Wesley United Methodist Church. Asa was preceded in death by his parents and wife. He is survived by daughters, Kay (David) Yaws of Victoria, Karen (Terry) Fleeman of Bloomington, sons, Scott (Brigitte) Logan of La Salle and Bryan (Shannon) Logan of Austin; nieces, Norma (Bill) Worthington of Taneytown, Maryland, Sherry (Randy) Schwirtlich of Robstown and nephew, Gordon “Bill” Meyer of Dallas; grandchildren: Stacey (Jevon) Cheuvront of Seminole, Tiffany (Jeff) Finley of Bloomington, Meagan (Jason) Clemons of Victoria, AJ (Marcy) Logan of Corpus Christi, Taryn (Nick) Flores of Victoria, Kyle (Tracy) Logan of Victoria, Stephanie (Tyler) Pekar of Hallettsville, Allison (Reagan) Richter of Victoria, Katie Nelson (Josh Johnson) of Austin, Amber Logan of La Salle; great-grandchildren: Jordan, Cristin, Jason and Kayden Clemons; Ivan, Brodie, Laryn and Larsyn Flores; Levi and Lexi Finley, Logan and Hadley Cheuvront; Gunner and Suthern Pekar; Landon and Kinley Logan; Aubrey, Lynleigh and Leighton Logan; Zoey and Ellie Kay Richter. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, February 11, 2019, with visitation to be at 9:00 a.m. at John Wesley United Methodist Church. Burial will immediately follow at Crescent Valley Cemetery. Casket bearers will be AJ Logan, Kyle Logan, Terry Fleeman, David Yaws, Jeff Finley, Jason Clemons, Nick Flores and Tyler Pekar. Asa enjoyed watching the deer and sunsets at his home located on the Twenty Oaks Farm, as well as the sunsets off the deck at the creek house. His sidekick, Tiny, will surely miss him. We will all miss his stories, conversations, and wisdom. He always told us, “You are my billion dollar family, I love you, I’m proud of you, and look out for those other guys.” The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to Dr. McFarland and the nurses at DeTar Hospital for the love and care of Asa (“Pops”). “Your life is made of two dates and a dash, make the most of the dash.” Donations may be made to John Wesley United Methodist Church.

Kay and Karen,
I'm so very sorry to hear of Asa's passing so soon after the passing of your mom. Both were kind people and I shall miss them. God bless you both and Scott.

My deepest sympathy to the family of Asa Logan. I know he will be truly missed by all. I knew Asa as we both worked for CPL/AEP. My memories of
Asa were of a very nice person with a warm smile, a good sense of humor
and always a friendly greeting. I know the men who worked with Asa held
him in high regard. Asa was fully committed to his work and family, but family always came first. May you find comfort in your wonderful memories.
God bless you all. Margie Sims

I am disappointed that we won't be there to join y'all at Asa Logan's services. I have many fond memories of visiting with Asa & long, long conversations. We used to have a Christmas luncheon at CMS from 1993-2004 when I was the manager there, and we always invited the retirees that I used to work with from H. O. Engineering & NPD-Victoria.

My secretary would come get me about 10 am & tell me, "The retirees are arriving. You need to go entertain them."

I would find Asa & some others from Victoria had arrived, and to entertain them, I just listened. We would have lunch for about 60-70 around noon, and then afterwards, we sat around and told stories. Asa was always among the last to leave, staying until about 3 pm.

He loved to talk about his family & his adventures with CPL. At one time, the relay control boards & walls at Beeville Substation were covered with comic strips that Asa & his co-workers put up during the months they were there installing newer technology relays. He always found ways to enjoy life.

I was blessed to count Asa as a friend, and in that friendship I found an encourager. Fond memories!

Asa Logan,where do I start to share a memory of you? I first met you in June of '67 during the start up of unit 6 at Victoria Power Station. l was 20 years old and you were working with the relay crew setting up our new unit. You were 13 years older than me, but somehow you and I had something in common . . . a sense of humor and great stories. I always looked forward to seeing the WDWP (well dressed wire pullers) van parked in the plant lot, because I knew I could find you behind one of the control panels with another fun story. I visited with you and Marilyn at your home and you took me on the 50 cent tour of your wonderful Pecan groove where you taught me how to catch pesky pecan stealing squirrels with a rat trap nailed to a tree. I'll never forget you saying that a squirrel was nothin' but a rat with a good tailor. Asa, I will miss your wonderful sense of humor, your funny stories, seeing you at the retirees luncheons . . . I will miss you!!!

My deepest condolences to Kay, Karen, Scott, Bryan and the rest of Asa's family , he was my friend, may God rest his soul.

Please remember my sweet childhood friend, Karen Fleeman,
and her family as they lay her amazing father to rest Monday. I hold so many fond memories in my heart of the days and nights I spent with them at their house. Asa and Marilyn Logan always treated me as one of their own. He will be missed by many.

Posted by David Boyer :
Asa Logan passed away today. His son Asa Scott was my best friend growing up in Crescent Valley. We played every day, we grew up every day. I spent the night at their house every Christmas because we’d share each other’s toys and always had a blast of a time . Mr. Logan had a pool table in his garage with garage speakers from the living room stereo. He had a pic of Willie Nelson on a concert venue advertisement for a gig in Goliad when He still had short hair. He always required Scott and I to always be respectful to each other and everyone else. He was a secondary father to me . This family has no idea what an escape their home was for me on a daily basis. Say hi to Mrs. Logan Mr. Asa I’m sure y’all have a lot to catch up on from the past year that she made the journey Kay, Karen , Scott And Brian I don’t have to tell ya what you mean to me And I thank God for y’all every single day. Live an honorable life folks, be like the Logans, make a life long difference in peoples lives 😢
