In Loving Memory Of

Merle Logan


Merle Lester Logan a lifetime resident of Webster AB, passed away on Thursday May 12, 2016 with family at his home.

Merle was born March 21, 1935 at Johanna’s in Sexsmith, AB to Louis and Nellie (Knutson) Logan. He started school in North Sexsmith and when he was 11, his family moved to Webster. As a young man Merle worked various jobs: threshing crew, hauling pulpwood, at a sawmill, cat operator and logging. In 1959 he married Alida Myers of Edmonton. In 1964 they purchased a quarter of land and built a new home. This is where they raised their four children. They started raising cattle, a love and lifestyle Merle continued until his passing. To supplement the farming he started to drive school bus, a job he had for 33 years. He took pride in this job and his reputation was known as the bus all kids wanted to ride on.

Merle loved to tell stories and had a great sense of humor. His quick wit kept people of all ages laughing and he loved to laugh. One of Merle greatest joys was to saddle his horse on Sunday and head to the cabin. He loved having his family join him and the more people that came the happier he was. He found many long lasting friendships on those rides. He rode his horse to that cabin last October at the age of 80.

Merle is survived by his wife of 57 years Alida, his children: David (Mary) Logan, Linda (David) Renner, Kevin (Chantelle) Logan and Wendy Logan; grandchildren: Megan, Becky (Justin), Heather (Trent), Bradley, Caiden, Maisie, Alyssa and Colton; great-grandchildren: Charlie, Austin and Claire.

Merle was predeceased by his father Louie and mother Nellie; sisters: Bernette Grotkowski and Diane McInnis.

A Funeral Service will be held Saturday May 21, 2016 at 2:00pm, at Webster Community Hall in Webster, AB.


In Loving Memory of

Merle Logan
