I use to work with Dana at Gander Mountain and when Tracy or Lee brought Logan into the store to see Dana - Dana would get an "instant smile and his eyes would light up". Logan would go running to see his "Proud Papa" - and you could see the "true love for each other" as they embraced!

I remember one time, Logan came into the store and we somehow started to walk the store (I probably didn't act very mature) but we walked around being silly and climbing thru the steel and over things. He thought that was great and was smiling and laughing!

I never seen Logan with a frown on his face, but I do believe he got that from his parents,especially his mom Tracy.

May he rest in peace and his family remember him with smiles and laughter!
Love and Sympathy,
Kelly Walker

I am a high school friend of Roberta. I was so very, very shocked and saddened to learn of Logan's passing. Roberta has told me about him and sent me the obituary to read. Clearly, he was a very special and good looking lad full of promise. My heart bleeds for his parents and all his family. Please accept my most heartfelt condolences. I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers for healing and peace.

Lee and Tracy,

Please know that you and your entire family are in our prayers. Truly devastated when I heard, and Nik was crushed when I told him the news. Logan was a great kid; can remember him and his smile even now on the lax field. I hope the strength that God gives you will lift you and your family up during this time and forever.

I worked with Logan at Charleston Zipline. I am so sorry for your loss.y most vivid and powerful memories of Logan are his interactions with children. When the kids at zipline would be petrified of highs, he would get down with them and go with them. Taking away their fear. I remember myself at his age and I am truly astonished how god he was with children and how kind hearted and gentle he was in life. While I did not know Logan for a long time, I can truly say I will remember him and his kind manor forever.

There are no words to express the deep sorrow that I feel along with everyone who cared for Logan. His smiling face imprinted in my minds eye, his laugh echoing in my head, and fun moments replaying in my memory (fidget spinners, top knots in his hair, jokes, stories, and hugs, etc) are what I am thankful for, and the relationship with his mom inspires me.

I loved Logan dearly. He was always so nice to me and always helped me with whatever i needed. He accepted everyone ( didnt matter if you were weird or not, he loved you and always made you smile with his cute laugh and smile and every beam of light that reflected off of him was pure) and put energy into everyones lives. I wish i was able to hang out with him and tyler and some of his friends that i know and love. I wish i got to meet his mother and be closer to him. He talked to me almost daily and ive known him since freshman year but only really got to know him really well this year. I really do miss him so much and i am so so so sorry that this happened. He never deserved this. All the things he had done... nothing could ever repay. I miss him and i love him. Im so shattered and i cant imagine what its like yo lose such a good child like logan. I love you Logie roll.
