Harold L. Logsdon



Harold L. Logsdon, 93, of Fostoria, passed away at 10:17am Saturday April 1, 2017 at Good Shepherd Home, Fostoria.

He was born June 7, 1923 in Carey to the late Wilfrid L. and Emma C. (Reinhart) Logsdon. He married Mary Lou Lucius on June 28, 1947 at St. Wendelin Catholic Church, Fostoria and she survives in Fostoria.

Also surviving is a son, Edward L. (Kimberly) Logsdon, Denver, CO; daughter, Kathy E. (Michael) Hall, Temperance, MI; granddaughter, Lyndsay Hall; step-grandson, David Smith; brothers, Charles Patrick (Rita) Logsdon, Upper Sandusky and Fr. Wilfred Logsdon O.F.M., Angola, IN. He was also preceded in death by a sister, Elizabeth Powell; twin brother, Herman; and brothers, Edmund, James, Larry, Joseph and Eugene Logsdon.

Harold was a 1941 graduate of Salem Centralized School in Wyandot County. He retired in 1988 from Mosser Construction, Fremont as a bridge builder, having built between 700-800 bridges in his 40 year career. He was a member of St. Wendelin Catholic Church, 3rd degree Knight of Columbus of Council # 1197, 4th degree Knight of Columbus of Assembly # 845, Fostoria and New Reigel American Legion Post # 354.
