LOGAN, Donald Allen

June 10, 1943 - August 14, 2017


Donald Allen Logan, (Don) age 74 of Courtenay BC, passed away peacefully at home as a result of a long battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis, Monday, August 14, 2017.

He is the last surviving member of his immediate family.

He was born June 10, 1943 in St. John, New Brunswick. He was the son of the late Allen Logan and the late Hazel (Tucker) Logan.

Don was brought up in his early years by his sister Helen Gunn.

Don joined the Navy at age 17. After three years serving in the Navy, he retired and operated a service station.  In 1965, Don enlisted in the RCAF initially as a radio operator. After three years in communications, Don reclassified to air crew. He then spent the rest of his career in various postings across Canada, ultimately settling in Comox BC.

Don’s passion for life included being very active in many sports. His particular loves were flying, sailing, and skiing. It is through those activities he has made the most friends and has taught many others of his love for those sports.

Don was a life member of the Courtenay Air Park, and a member of the 19 Wing Comox Yacht Club.

Don is survived by, and will be sadly missed by companion Karen Smit, children Bernadine (Doug) Leonard, Tracey (Nick) Antoft, Mark (Sandra) Logan, and Michele (Charles) Pichay-Hall. He is also survived by the children’s mother Hazel (Gaudet) Logan and many grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter.

A celebration of life will be held at the 888 Wing, Comox Air Force Base, 1298 Military Row, Lazo BC, Friday, August 18 2017, 09:00 to 12:00 PM. ln lieu of flowers, a donation to the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation in Don’s memory would be greatly appreciated by the family.

Arrangements have been placed in the care of Eric Toneff of Toneff Funeral Services.

From: Aggie Hebert-Mondry
Relation: Good friend and Club member of 19WCYC in Comox

Seven years ago, when we were posted to Comox, Don was one of the first people who made us feel welcome. We were new to the area and knew very few people. We got involved with the 19 WCYC. He taught Derrick and myself to sail. Being a prairie girl, I was very nervous about the water and knew very little about boats. His patience and love of the sport was contagious and helped to ease my fear of sailing. Don visited us often and we looked forward to his frequent phone calls saying he would drop in. We will miss his visits and his ‘joie de vivre’.

From: Duane & Christine Bannerman
Relation: Friend

We are so very sorry to hear about Don’s death. Finally made it back to the Island with intentions of catching up while sailing! Here’s hoping Don is having best sailing adventure ever!
