Doug Pic 4Doug worked in the construction industry for over 39 years, including 22 years as a Project Manager and Estimator at Sellen Construction.

He was on the board at his church, hosted a monthly breakfast, and ran the sound for church services. He was also known for his love of sports, and to many was the most avid Husky fan people have ever known.

    I am so sorry for your families loss. I remember marching bands days and Doug was one of the faithful band parents! He was a “dad” to a lot of us Sultan kids. The best part is he BEAT cancer! That cancer is dead now, but he is alive with Jesus! And we will all be reunited again soon!

    I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing this gentleman, but he sounds like such an inspirational, respectable and great man. I would have been proud to call my friend. God Bless all that his passing had touched. You were truly blessed people.

    “Well-done, good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Lord.” Doug Logsdon was one of the “good men”, and I had the privilege of knowing him. He deeply loved and cared for his bride, Colleen. He fiercely loved his two children, Andrew and Sarah, and he encouraged and supported them in their endeavors. He delighted in and cherished every interaction with his two adorable granddaughters, Abbie and Kenna. He was the ultimate problem-solver and he could always find that silver lining amidst any cloud! He fought the good fight and he was a brave soldier through his battle. He always ended his emails with a reminder to us all: “Remember that Jesus loves you.” We will do so, faithful one and we will take comfort in knowing that you are not “gone”… you just changed your address & you are awaiting our arrival!

    I knew Doug from his days at McMahon Hall, a UW dormitory. I never once saw him behave inconsiderately toward anyone. His courtesy and optimism spread joy and love, and thus it is no mere formality to say: he will be missed, and his memory will be for a blessing.
