Obituary

Kerry Lamar Logan, 55, passed away Wednesday, January 8, 2020. He was born in Concord, CA to Bill and Lynette Logan, and graduated from Monterey High School (class of 1982), where he lettered in swimming. He served his country faithfully in the United States Navy during the Cold War, Desert Storm, Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom and subsequently for NIWC as a Radar Test Engineer. He served onboard the fast attack submarines Memphis, La Jolla and Pasadena. Kerry was a member of the BMW Motorcycle Club of Hampton Roads (past VP), Motorcycle Owners of America, the Riders Association, theR90s Club, the VFW, the United States Submarine Veterans, Inc, and the Coast Guard Auxiliary. Despite his many busy professional accomplishments and social activities, the peace of a quiet, still morning was what he cherished above all else. As a Boy Scout, Kerry learned to love camping, travelling, gardening, and building furniture. He was a submariner, a sailor, an instructor and scuba diver, photographer, DJ, videographer, a band mate of Flaming Tiger-Eyes, and enjoyed grilling, smoking meat and cooking in general. His love for BMX racing in his youth evolved into a passion for adult motorcycling, and he found a group of kindred spirits in the Iron-Butt Association, an exclusive group of motorcyclists who travel extreme distances in short times. For example, the epic 50CC ride - coast to coast in 50 hours. Kerry did it in 44.42. He criss-crossed the continent many times on motorcycles and was recently awarded the coveted 100,000 mile award from BMW Motorrad in Germany. By his own estimation, he had clocked well over 200,000 miles on BMW motorcycles exclusively. But above all else, Kerry loved his wife Jenn, his daughter Kendra, and his pets, whom he sometimes enjoyed more than people.

Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife of 20 years, Jennifer R. Logan; daughter, Kendra Faye Logan; father, Bill Logan and his wife Susan; mother, Lyn Buchanan and her husband James; siblings, Kimberly Logan-Hynes, Kristopher Logan, Kimo Logan; step-siblings, Kevin Jordan, Sandy Buchanan-Johnson, Doug Buchanan and his wife Amy, Patty Bruington and her husband Mike; and numerous extended family members and dear friends. He is also survived by his very special fur babies, cats, Snickers and Major Tom Logan; and dog, Minerva-Jett Logan.

A visitation will be held Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at 11 am with a celebration of life beginning at 12 noon at Graham Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 1112 Kempsville Rd. Chesapeake, VA with a time of fellowship and reception to follow in the reception hall. At the request of the family, in lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial donation to Kerry’s charity www.burningwish.org .

I remember the great sense of humor that Kerry had. He was always sending the new guys on the boat on a hunt for the infamous "Nauga" as in Naugahyde. His love for motorcycling inspired me, who had never ridden a day in my life, to want to ride and I bought my first every Motorcycle while attached to La Jolla. I was blessed to have met Jen and Kendra out of the blue last year while my wife and I were touring through the bookstore at Monticello. Seems great minds think alike and we had converged on the same location from different parts of the country. I notice this little girl browsing the racks of nick nacks and thought how familiar she looked, then noticed her momma next to her and knew right away this was Kerry's family. He always posted pictures of them and was very proud of them. My wife is still amazed that I was able to meet up with someone attached to my past over 3000 miles away. My thoughts and prayers go out to Jen and Kendra during this time of mourning. Kerry will live on in the stories and memories of the hundreds of men he served with. Peace be with you and rest in peace our brother. Fair winds and following seas. Sailor rest your oars, we have the watch!

To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.
