OSBORN – Harold F. Logan Jr., 76, died Feb. 19, 2014, after a sudden heart attack at home in the cabin he shared with his wife, Ann, at Spectacle Pond, his favorite spot on earth. He was born Oct. 7, 1937, in Concord, N.H., to Harold F. Logan Sr. and Hazel I. (Edmunds) Logan.
As a youngster due to his father’s work, he traveled the East Coast and attended 50 different schools before settling in Middleboro, Mass. Harold was a graduate of Middleborough Memorial High School, Middleboro, Mass., class of 1955, and Massachusetts College of Pharmacy in 1962. He married the former Ann Miller, from Middleboro, Mass., on Sept. 6, 1959. They moved to Maine in 1962. In 2004, Harold and Ann retired to their beloved cabin at Spec Pond, Osborn. Harold was a true sportsman. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, trapper, and Maine Guide. He took every opportunity to be outdoors and enjoyed these activities with many friends. He especially enjoyed spring fishing on the Allagash, four-wheeling in the summer, deer hunting in the fall, and snowmobiling and ice fishing in the winter. With Harold, family always came first. He was a devoted husband, father, brother, grandfather, and uncle. He waited and planned all year to have the grandchildren come visit at Spec Pond. They enjoyed four-wheeling, swimming, boating, and fishing immensely. Harold was truly at his happiest when he was surrounded by his family and friends. He made many lifelong friends as a traveling pharmacist for Welby. He was a genuine people person wherever he went. He owned and operated Alexander’s Pharmacy, in Ellsworth, for 17 years. He has worked part-time for the past five years at Machias Friendly Pharmacy in Machias. In 2013 the Maine Board of Pharmacy recognized and awarded Harold for his 50 years of dedicated service to the profession of Pharmacy. He was a past president of the Ellsworth Lions Club, a past president of the Ellsworth Chamber of Commerce and he was a Mason and Shriner.
He is survived by his loving wife, Ann of 54 years; one son, Scott H. Logan of Bangor; one daughter, Mary Kay Heilbron and husband, Mike; and two much loved grandchildren, Ricky and Megan Heilbron of Superior, Colo.; two sisters, Laralei Duarte of Augusta, and Jane Rippe and her husband, Edward, of Enfield, N.H.; a very special aunt, Janet Turcotte of Bath; many nieces, nephews, cousins, and a treasured little granddog, Zoey. He was predeceased by his parents and one younger brother, John M. Logan of Presque Isle.
A Mass of Christian burial will be prayed at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25, at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 231 Main St., Ellsworth, with Father Scott Mower presiding. The family suggests that those who desire may make contributions in Harold’s memory to a charity of one’s choice rather than sending flowers.
