Memories & Celebrations: Obituary
It is with much love that the family announces the passing of Brian Donald Logan, peacefully in his sleep, on January 28, 2023, at the age of 75, in Sioux Lookout, ON.
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Marian, his daughters Stacie, Amber (James) and Gerlyn (Joe); his grandchildren Shealyn, Breadan, Nicholas, Noah, Drew and Presley and his great granddaughters Chloie, Natalie, Kamrie and Everleigh. He will also be missed by his brother Jim and his sister Ardis and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his mother Grace, father Jim and his Aunt and Uncle, Pansy and William Solomon.
While stationed in Halifax, he met Marian, the love of his life. They were married in 1967 and welcomed their first daughter in 1968. He then moved his family to Sioux Lookout in 1971, after leaving the Navy, and they welcomed twin daughters in 1975.
His interests included fishing and hunting and in later years he enjoyed gardening and became “the thorn among roses” at Sioux Towers where he resided. He also enjoyed reminiscing with his Navy buddies, whether on the phone or on facetime, and his eyes always sparkled when he could share those stories with us. He was so loved and will be truly missed by all.
Brian had many accomplishments; first and foremost being the voice of Santa on the phone, a tradition he truly loved and kept going for many years. He was an active member of the Sioux Lookout Figure Skating Club, and the Sioux Lookout Judo Club when his daughters were young. Most recently Brian was recognized as a lifelong member with 43 years of service with the Sioux Lookout Lions Club.
The family wishes to send a special thank you to the staff at Sioux Towers and to the community, for the tremendous support and love that you have shown the family.
Memorial donations can be made to the Sioux Lookout Lions Club in Brian’s name.
“Ya know the thing is…. I did it my way”
