We give thanks for the life and witness of our dear friend and brother in Christ, Brian Logan (1961 – 2013), and we grieve his loss with his wife, Suzie, their children, Kolbe and Lydia, and the Church of the Servant King. Hundreds of EP’ers know Brian’s gentle presence, humor, and grace from the many Gatherings he attended.
May Brian’s soul and the souls of all the departed faithful by God’s mercy rest in peace.
Here follows Brian’s obituary:
Born Febrary 24 1961 in Houston,Texas the son of John and Hildy Logan , Brian died Monday, April, 29, 2013 at his home in Eugene, Oregon. He was 52. Brian was raised in San Diego, CA graduating from Mission Bay High School in 1979. He attended Preston Road School of Preaching, Abilene Christian University, and Northwest Christian College.
Brian married Suzie Cox January 29, 1994 in San Francisco, CA, and moved to Eugene, OR where Brian served as a pastor for Church of the Servant King. Brian was beloved by many in the community as a pastor, in his role managing Theo’s Jazz Club, and as the lead barista at Theo’s Coffee House.
Brian was known for his hospitality, never letting a friend go without a beverage in their hand. The consummate conversationalist, he never let a long line at Theo’s stop him from finding out how your day was going. As a pastor, he preached the love and mercy of God up until the eve of his death. To his congregation, Brian is irreplaceable.
Brian loved Jazz, wood working, birds, good food, ancient biblical languages; but most of all his family and friends. His life was spent trying to make others’ lives meaningful. All hyperbole aside, this world has lost a man who made others better.
Brian is survived by his wife, Suzie Logan , son Kolbe and daughter Lydia of Eugene. Brian is also survived by his mother, Hildy Logan of San Diego, sisters Jennie Medina and Katy Schamp; and brother Ken Logan. He was preceded in death by his father, John Logan.
A Memorial Service will be held 2pm May 11 at Valley Covenant Church, Eugene. A private interment will be held at Rest Lawn Memorial Park in Junction City, OR. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Hosea Youth Services.
