Major Paul Eugene Logan, age 65, was called home to be with his Heavenly Father on November 23, 2021, in Wausau, Wisconsin.

Paul is survived by his wife Barbara (nee Pettit) of Wausau, WI; his son, Jonathan (Nikki) and grandchildren Eva, Mia, and Finn, of Cecil, WI; and his daughter, Brenna (Vinal), of Indianapolis, IN; and his siblings, Rita Duncan (Bob) of Charles City, IA, Joe Logan of Hebron IL, Phyllis Corey (John) - Rolla, MO, and Ruth Grey of Granite City, IL. He is preceded in death by his mother, Viola Logan, of Crystal Lake, IL; his father, Joseph, of Crystal Lake, IL; and his niece, Jessica, of Bourbon, MO.

Paul was born on May 9, 1956 in Charles City, IA, to parents Joseph and Viola. He graduated from Spring Arbor College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Resources; was commissioned by The Salvation Army; and graduated from Olivet Nazarene University with a Master’s Degree in Business Administration. Paul served in Michigan, Minnesota, the Bahamas, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa as a Corps Officer of the Salvation Army for 39 years.

Paul was a devoted family man and a loving father. He married Barbara on July 31, 1982 and the couple had two children together. Paul and Barbara enjoyed being outside, spending time with their kids and grandkids, sightseeing, and eating out. The family has many fond memories traveling with family and friends, attending The Salvation Army’s camps, and playing games at home together.

Paul was a God-fearing man who was deeply involved with The Salvation Army since childhood. He enjoyed playing instruments, reading, and spending time with his family. His family and friends will always remember him as the best dad a kid could ask for, the funnest grandpa in the world, a cherished husband, loyal friend, and a servant of the Lord.
