January 12, 1944 – January 16, 2022
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Ernie Logan only a few days after his 78th birthday. Ernie was raised on a farm in the Old Wives community and continued to farm there until 1994 after which time he moved to Moose Jaw. He has been married to his best friend and partner, Carol (Drake) since April 1963 and a loving father to four children, Barbara, Tammy, Bonnie, and Jamey. During his early years of marriage, Ernie worked as a mechanic at Gaudrey’s, White Rose Tower and Con’s Corner Service Stations. After the passing of his father, he gave up working as a full-time mechanic in order to focus all his time and energy on raising his family and running the family ranch.
Ernie was always happy to lend a hand to the Crestwynd and Old Wives communities whenever needed. He could always be counted on to show up, pitch in and provide a laugh while doing so. Ernie served as a leader with the Old Wives 4-H Club, a councillor for the R.M. of Hillsborough and drove the school bus for more than 20 years. He also enjoyed playing and coaching ball at various community sports days.
Following his move to Moose Jaw, Ernie worked as a farm labourer for a large farming/ranching operation until he left to work alongside his son at Strictly Fences which progressed into managing Evenwalk Concrete until his retirement in 2018. Ernie liked to be busy, and it was the progression of Lewy Body Dementia that brought his working days to an end.
Ernie was such a hard worker his entire life, but it was the love for his family that brought him the greatest joy! Ernie was all about family – all the time! This was most evident in the past three years during his time at Providence Place. He had a family member with him every single day with the only exception being during the Covid lockdown period. Carol never seemed to leave, and their ongoing love was evident to everyone.
Ernie’s family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for the kind and compassionate care Ernie received during his stay at Providence Place. Their support and friendship has been invaluable to the family and, most especially, Carol during these difficult last few years.
Ernie leaves to mourn his wife, Carol, his children, Barbara (George, grandchildren Chad (Kirsten and great grandson, Logan) Jenna (Bryan, great granddaughter Presley and great grandson Brady), Tammy (Jim), Bonnie (Gill, granddaughter Kendall and grandson Reed (Josie), Jamey (Sheri, granddaughter Taylor (Ryan), grandson Jordan (Amarha). He also leaves to mourn his sisters Margie Willis and Phyllis (Al) Evans. Ernie was predeceased by his parents Jim and Ruby Logan, his sister Edie Loeppky, brother-in-law Bryant Loeppky, brother-in-law Jim Anthony and brother-in-law Ray Willis. He was also predeceased by his in-laws, Bruce and Beatrice Drake.
A Celebration to honour Ernie’s life will be held on Friday, January 21st, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. at Moose Jaw Funeral Home with Celebrant Dave Foley officiating.

Carol, sincere condolences for your loss.
While I did not know Ernie, I got to know you as you struggled with his Lewy Body dementia. Seeing you faithfully, every day, go to Garden Grove, come home exhausted, yet still smiling, only to go back the next day, gave me a little insight to your dedication to Ernie. May those many hours help you know you did what you promised him in 1963, and may good memories over the years soon wash over the hard ones.
My condolences to Carol and the entire family.

My sincerest condolences to Aunt Carol, Barb, Tammy, Bonnie, Jamey and families. I was not able to attend the service in person but watched it live. Ernie was a kind and gentle man and anyone that knew him would say that he was a great man, a hero or quite simply, a legend that no others measure up to. I think he is all of them combined into one of the most amazing men that I was blessed to call my Uncle. Glad that you are free of the shackles from this world. RIP Uncle Ernie. You are missed, but live on in your children and grandchildren.
I was saddened to read of Ernie’s passing, my sympathies to all

Know that his kind, loving and humorous spirit lives on and that he is always with you. Wish I could have attend in person his memorial service. I did join online. It was a beautiful tribute to Ernie.
Sending my hugs and deepest condolences.
Our Deepest Sympathy to your families at this very difficult time.
