May God bless you, Logan. It was an honor and a joy to know you.

The Pedersen family is thinking of you all during this time. We have so many happy hockey memories with your family and Logan. We will deeply miss him. Hugs and Prayers to you all!


I have special memories of Logan as a fourth grader in my class at Solheim Elementary School. My deepest condolences to his family. May your memories bring you peace and comfort.

We are blessed to have gotten to know Logan through our daughter, Kya. He truly was a fierce friend and protector, and for that, we are forever thankful. We have great memories of the times he spent at our house…seeing his crazy hair, listening to his laughter, playing with our dogs and just being an overall friendly, full of life, great kid. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Much love to the Sampson family and all of Logan’s friends. I know we lost a great one and he would only want you all to keep living and loving BIG TIME. We can’t ever take a day for granted.

I just heard! Oh I am so sorry for this to have happened to your oldest. I only saw him when he was very young and you bought our house. He was so busy! My heart goes out to you! 🙏🙏🙏🙏
