Roy Wallace (Wally) Loggie, 84, of Whiting, NJ went to be with the Lord Friday morning. Wally is predeceased by his father and mother, Roy and Agnes Loggie; his sister, Norma Briggs; his stepson, James Wood; and his grandson, Brian Wood. He is survived by his loving wife and partner of 37 years, Shirley Loggie. He is adoringly remembered by his sister and brother-in-law, Wendy and Dale Cross; his brother and sister-in-law Vernon and Sharon Loggie; his stepsons Thomas Wood, Barry Wood, and Daniel Wood; his granddaughter and her husband Stephanie and Christopher Hindley; his grandsons Barry Wood and Dylan Wood; his granddaughter, Carly Wood; several nieces and nephews; and many other family and friends. Born in Burnt Church, New Brunswick, Canada, Wally spent time playing in the Moncton Commercial Hockey League and working for NB Tel before his love of horses brought him to the United States, where he joyfully pursued his dream of training standardbred horses. Wally is fondly remembered as a devoted husband, loving stepfather, and doting grandfather. He spent the majority of his career training standardbred harness-racing horses. His work took him all over the country and up and down the east coast where he made many friends in the industry. When back at home, he enjoyed Canadian hockey, and, at any time, Wally could also been found enjoying an MLB game on the television or watching his favorite driver on the NASCAR tracks. Wally was full of what his family would call “useless facts” and had a sense of humor matched by none (except his three grandsons). He was a simple man who most enjoyed a can of beans and mince pie for dinner, much to his family’s confusion. Most important of all, Wally was the most patient and kind man anyone ever had the pleasure of meeting. He was an exemplary role model for his stepsons and loved his grandchildren more than words could accommodate. Wally briefly retired to Inverness, Florida where he drove a school bus and found a special calling, connecting with the many children on his route. Although he and his wife, Shirley, returned to New Jersey to be with their grandchildren, Wally very much enjoyed making his way up to Canada where he would visit family and also visiting Florida from time to time to get away from the cold. His loss is felt deeply – he is so very missed by all. Friends and family may call on Monday, April 5th from 11am to 1pm at Anderson & Campbell Funeral Home, 115 Lacey Road, Whiting, NJ 08759. The family kindly requests all guests to wear a mask.
