Rev. Raymond Logan
Rev. Raymond Logan, 94, of Rochester, died Thursday, March 28, 2019 at his home.
Raymond was born January 23, 1925 in Cumberland, WI to Ray and Zoa (Hutchison) Logan.
On September 1, 1946, he married Lorraine E. Duckson in Wells, MN and together they raised seven children. The Logans were doing well on a Southern Minnesota farm when the call to fulltime ministry became too pressing to continue farming. They sold out and went to Northwestern Bible School and Seminary.
In 1951, the couple moved to Aberdeen, MD where Raymond was instrumental in starting the ministry of military evangelism and opening the Christian Welcome Center at Aberdeen, MD Proving Grounds. Raymond Logan was ordained to preach the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ on June 24, 1953.
After his move to Rochester, the first Sunday service of Faith Church was held in his home in October of 1955 and was the start of his ministry in Rochester. He was elected a trustee and treasurer at the international convention for Independent Fundamental Churches of America (IFCA) and later appointed second vice president.
Faith Sound Inc., a non-profit corporation was formed in 1972. Faith Christian School was then started in 1974 and after many years of preparation, Faith Sound Christian Radio, KFSI, began broadcasting in 1981.
Raymond was preceded in death by two sons, two grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. He is survived by his wife of 72 ½ years, Lorraine; seven children, Dianne Stabenow, Jeanette Ihde, Darlene Becker, Tim Logan, Sally McConaughey, Pam Connelly, and Paul Logan; 27 grandchildren; 49 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and one sister, WillaBelle Nelson of Rochester.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be made to Faith Sound Christian Radio, KFSI 92.9.
A memorial service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 2, 2019 in the River Park Chapel at Macken Funeral Home with Rev. Lyle Ihde officiating. A private family burial will be in Grandview Memorial Gardens.
The family of Rev. Raymond Logan has received the following condolences.
Tim and Paul: My heart goes out to you and your family at this time of your loss. Lonnie and I so loved hearing father and son on the radio over the years sharing--Paul with your father, such a blessing. Your discussions that went out over the airways was a model to us of the love between the two of you, in essence exemplifying the Father's love to us. This love you have had with your dad is very special, and the both of you shown this to Lonnie and I many times over the years. So, I say thank you to your dad for the legacy he has left; he was a faithful servant.
Dear family of Ray Logan
My heart goes out to you during this time of sorrow, yet I know you have a joy in you that he is now with his Lord and savior Jesus Christ. When I first moved to the "prairie" in 2006 I immediately went to the Pioneer Campsite realizing there was a Sunday worship there. I was in much need of Christian fellowship at the time and Ray and Lorraine were the only believers I new of in the area. Thank you Ray for teaching the truth and sharing your wisdom of the Lord with me. I am blessed that I got to spend some time with you - see you again some day when we walk the streets of gold together.
We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Ray.Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.I very much enjoyed listening to his sermons.He was a very special angel of God and will be missed by all.Hugs
May the Lord comfort your hearts during this time. May His Holy Spirit strength you in hope. We will always remember Pastor Logan for his gentle manner, words of encouragement, and kind smile. IITimothy 4:7-8
