Glen Logan Obituary

  Glen Harold Logan was born May 17, 1932 in Smith Center, Kansas to Sam and Barbara Logan as the 6th child.
  Arriving 2 years into the Great Depression, followed by 7 years of the Dust Bowl, created an upbringing of determination and hard work.  Everyone had a responsibility in the family - even the youngest.  In April of 1941, the family moved to Estherville, Iowa.  During WWII, Sam and the boys were able to raise good crops that sold for high prices.  At the age of 12 years old, Glen graduated from the country school, went out to High School, graduating at 15. 
  Glen spent 1 year at Estherville Jr. College, and 4 years at Iowa State University, graduating in 1953 at the age of 21 with a degree in soil science.  While in College, he completed the requirements for ROTC and was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force.  he was proud of the fact that he worked his way through all 5 years of college.   In April of 1954, he began his active service, 1st year in Denver in photo radar intelligence at Lowry Air Force Base, and his 2nd year as a targets officer in Osani South Korea. 
  After his honorable discharge, Glen worked 9 months at Albert Dickenson Seed Company as a seed analyst, and in 1957 took a position as a soil scientist with the USDA.  That same year met and eventually married Florence Holmes Howard, a widow with a young son, John Edmund (Pete) Howard.  Glen became an immediate father.  The family grew to 3 with the birth of Nancy and Linda.  
  Home for the family was initially in Emmett, then moves to Nampa, Burley and finally Boise.  In 1991, they lost Pete to a heart attack.  During his tenure as a soil scientist, Glen taught at Boise State University.  Upon retirement, he became an appraiser and an independent soils analyst for property development.  Florence passed away in October of 2015, having battle with dementia for some time.  Glen had an unwavering dedication to caring for her at the entire time.  Needless to say, his life was never the same.
  Glen was preceded in death by his parents, Sam and Barbara Logan; wife, Florence; son, Pete; brothers, Dean (Ruth), John (Darlene), Sam (Dorthy), Dale (Doris) and a sister, Edith (Dutch).  He is survived by his daughters, Nancy (Steve) Osborne and Linda Borup (Burke), grandchildren, Audrey (Rutger) Vanderlaan & their son, Thorne (great grandson), Alex Borup, Laurel Osborne (fiancé, Henry), Olivia Osborne and Carly Osborne.
