Obituary of David Logan

It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of David Logan husband of Cynthia (Osborne) Logan of Saint John, NB, which occurred on August 1, 2020 at his residence. Born on March 8, 1943 in Sunderland Tyne and Wear, England he was the son of the late James and Dorothy (Melton) Logan.


He was an electrician by trade and started his career with the British Merchant Navy and worked his way up to Chief Electrical Officer. When he settled down in Saint John with his family, he was employed with the Port of Saint John maintenance department for about 20 years and then became employed as one of the planners at the Saint John Shipbuilding & Drydock during the Frigate Program years. He was also a very proud member of Local 502 IBEW and Local 273 of the ILA during his working years.


When Dave wasn’t working, you could always find him working on a project in his shop, finding something to fix on the property and tending to his beautiful garden. Dave also adored and loved his grandchildren and took great pleasure in their scholastic and athletic accomplishments. In his last years, Dave always enjoyed sharing photographs and stories of the grandchildren and the garden to the wonderful staff at the Saint John Regional Hospital Dialysis Unit.
