Logan David McDonald

March 19, 1996 — July 25, 2020

Logan David McDonald, 24, of Madison, AL died July 25, 2020 in a tragic single vehicle accident in Lawrence County. 

Born on March 19,1996 in Fayetteville, N.C. to Amanda and COL Timothy David McDonald, Logan’s childhood homes prior to Madison included: Fort Rucker, AL; Schweinfurt, Germany; Huntsville, AL; Dallas, TX; Chicago, IL; Wilmington, NC and his mother’s hometown, Dothan, AL.

Logan’s first word was ‘ball,’ and his first passion was baseball. He was a four-year letterman as a middle fielder and outfielder with the Madison Academy Mustangs, and was revered as the team’s strong hitter. During his senior year, the Mustangs won the Alabama 3A State Championship, and his coaches and teammates said they will always remember his perseverance, finesse at the plate, and his compassion for everyone he met, on or off the field. 

After graduating from Madison Academy, Logan pursued a degree in biology, served as a volunteer firefighter in his father’s hometown of Sherman, Illinois and aspired to become a lineman. He recently completed the certification program at Calhoun College in Huntsville, and competed in the Tennessee Valley Power Association lineman’s rodeo, climbing a 75-foot power pole to demonstrate his skills.

Logan was a kind and gentle man, and an avid outdoorsman who knew no strangers. He loved taking beach vacations with his family, and was fascinated by marine life. His friends affectionately called him ‘Alabama’ and a dog whisperer, and his loyal companion Briar was always at his side while he was bow fishing and hunting with family and friends.

Logan is survived by his loving parents and sister Madison; maternal grandparents Patrena and Dr. Wilton McRae, aunt Angela (Jon) Blake, cousins Kathryn and Alex Venezia and James and Walker Elliott; paternal grandmother Connie (David) Ed, aunt Vicki (Frank) Kastory and cousins Clark and Carter Kastory. He was preceded in death in June 2020 by both his uncle James Elliott and grandfather Robert McDonald.

Logan’s youth minister, Rev. Kyle Gatlin of Covenant United Methodist Church in Dothan, AL will officiate the memorial service at 1 p.m. on July 29 at Legacy Chapel Funeral Home in Madison, AL. The family will receive friends for visitation after the service.  Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, face-masks and social distancing will be mandatory. Private internment services will be held with family members at Green Hills Memorial Cemetery in Troy, AL on Thursday, July 30 with Rev. Steve Winton of the First United Methodist Church Troy, AL officiating.
