John Logan

John Truax Logan, 77, passed away on June 26, 2019, at his home in Kirkland, Washington. 

John was born December 26, 1941 in Seattle to Jack Truax Logan and Harriet (Hoffstater) Logan.  He grew up in Seattle and graduated from Shoreline High School in 1960. 

He attended Western Washington University and majored in business economics.  After school, John worked for Coldwell Banker as a commercial real estate broker.  At one point, John managed the Smith Tower in downtown Seattle and regaled in stories of this position for many years. 

John’s happy-go-lucky personality and charisma engendered many friendships that he maintained and nurtured his whole life. 

John married Sara Moffitt in 1968 and they had two daughters, Cheryl (Overbey) and Ilon.  image of John Truax LoganLater in life he met his companion and girlfriend, Jane Gillis. 

John and Jane enjoyed many years of laughter and adventure with good humor.  John was a talented carpenter who had an artistic mind.  He was an avid fisherman who enjoyed many winters fishing for steel-head on the Olympic Peninsula, and also the excitement of marlin fishing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  He was a hydroplane enthusiast from an early age.  In addition to building, painting and racing scale model hydroplanes for 30 years, he never missed a Tri-Cities race to watch the big boats. 

John is survived by Jane, his two daughters, his brother Jerry Logan and sister Roxanne Logan as well as his grandchildren – Mateo, Mae, Sara and Leni.  Private services were held with family and friends.

    To all of the Logan family, the Pearson family sends our Love and condolences on the loss of Johnny as our family knew him all of his life. My brother Duke and Jani went to shoreline high school together and we’re crazy friends And got into a lot of trouble, but not bad trouble; just fun trouble. I think they even used to go rat shooting at the dump but I’m not exactly sure. I do know the Logan’s and the Pearson’s shared a lot of wonderful memories at Lake Cavanaugh in the 50s and 60s and our parents were lifelong friends for more than 60 years. My heart goes out to you, Jerry, and to Roxanne, as this cannot be an easy time for you. Please feel free to reach out to me if you wish at didge.pearson-substitute at symbol here-gmail.com or 206.707.3528. Again, our family sends our love to you all. The Logan family is one of a kind.We hold Johnny in our hearts.
