Dr. Ralph Walter Logan

May 29, 1920 – March 21, 2011

Ralph Logan passed away peacefully on March 21, after a full and fruitful life. He is survived by his loving wife of 62 years. Ralph is also survived by his three daughters; six grandchildren: and one great-grandson. He was predeceased by his son Alan. He is also survived by his brother.  

Ralph was born and raised in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. As a boy he excelled at music, playing piano and the clarinet. At the outbreak of WWII, Ralph volunteered, and served as a gunner among the first Canadian troops in England.  There, he was accepted into the Royal Air Force, and returned to Canada to complete flight training. An exceptional pilot, Ralph served as an instructor in the allied flight training mission in Ontario throughout the war. Following the war, he was trained as an optometrist at the University of Toronto.

While studying in Toronto, he met the love of his life. They were married on June 12, 1948. Following completion of studies, they settled in Portage la Prairie, where Ralph set up his optometry practice.

Life in Portage was filled with family, work, and a strong dedication to community. Ralph was a devoted husband and loving father, who dealt positively and pragmatically with the many challenges of life. He served in the Rotary Club, including a term as its president. He was widely known across the region, and respected as a pillar of the community.

In 1985, Ralph and his wife retired to White Rock, BC, where they enjoyed travel, leisure, and family. An avid reader, Ralph poured through thousands of books. He enjoyed the symphony and classical music. Also the scurl of the pipes, and a wee dram.

The family thanks the staff at Evergreen Baptist Care Home and Peace Arch Hospital for their kindness and help. Also thanks to Veterans Affairs Canada, for their valuable assistance.

Per Ralph’s wishes, no funeral services will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of BC, 300 – 828 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver, BC, V5Z 1E2.
