Jerry Wayne Logan
Dec 06, 1948 - May 15, 2018

Jerry Wayne Logan was born on December 6, 1948. He was the youngest of nine children. Jerry graduated from Washington High School, with the class of 1966. He joined the United States Navy where he served our country for four years on the USS John F. Kennedy. He retired from Folger Coffee Company after many years of dedicated service.


Jerry Wayne Logan and Evelyn Louise Simpson first met in second grade at White Church. It wasn’t love at first sight, but they discovered each other later on in high school, and a year after graduation, they were married. The marriage dissolved after eight years, but then twenty-two years passed, and their paths crossed again, resulting in them remarrying on April 27, 1999. The couple recently celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary, with a very special lunch date.


Jerry was also blessed with a daughter from a previous marriage, named Matty Jill Magel (Logan). He loved to steal words and phrases from his daughter like, “Dude,” “Cool Beans,” and “Whatever!” They spent many of the last thirteen years meeting for lunch each week.


Jerry was diagnosed last June with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer and endured many rounds of chemo treatment in hopes of being victorious in his battle with the disease. He will be remembered by his loved ones as one of the strongest and most courageous men they have ever known. He battled and bounced back every time the chemo knocked him down. Sadly, he was admitted to Shawnee Mission Medical Center on May 9th, 2018, which would be his last stent in the hospital. He never complained and was an excellent patient; however, he passed away on Tuesday night May 15, 2018, at the age of 69.


Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, (Helen Louise and William Everett Logan), his sister (Ruth H. Shuler), his brother (William K. Logan), his sister (Mary P. Shuler), his brother (Robert D. Logan), and his step-son (James A. Reeves).

Logan, Mitchell L. Magel, and Morgan A. Magel, his siblings: - sister Peggy S. Mustin, brother - John W. Logan, and sister-in-law -  Mary Jo Logan, as well as, sister - Betty L.
