Dr. Bernard “Bernie” Logan, age 82 of Gloucester and Lynnfield, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family, Sunday July 30 at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. He will be remembered by family and friends for his kindness, generosity, and compassion.
He was born in Boston on May 8, 1941 and was the son of the late Bernard and Margaret (Geary) Logan.
Bernie was born and raised in Dorchester, attended Boston College High School, Boston College and then medical school at Tufts University. He married Barbara Siegel on July 12, 1970 at Sacred Heart Church in Roslindale. Soon after the wedding, he was drafted into the US Army and served two years, including a year in Vietnam as a Major in the Medical Corps. He was awarded the Bronze Star for meritorious achievement in ground operations. When he returned to the area they lived in Malden before moving to Lynnfield in 1973, where they happily raised their family of five children.
Dr. Logan was an Ob-Gyn for nearly 50 years and was the Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Malden Hospital and then the Melrose-Wakefield Hospital for many years. He delivered over 10,000 babies during his time at the Melrose-Wakefield, Malden, and Winchester Hospitals. He was honored to be part of the happiest day of so many people’s lives. He retired in 2018 at the age of 77.
Bernie had a few deep passions in his life: his children and grandchildren, his garden, traveling with his wife, Boston sports teams, and fishing off Gloucester and in the Florida Keys. He always looked forward to his annual trips with his sons to Marathon Key, where they fished for over 20 years. Bernie enjoyed spending his summers at Wingaersheek Beach in Gloucester. He loved to spend time on his boat and taught his grandchildren how to fish.
Bernie loved to travel and enjoyed many memorable vacations with his beloved wife Barbara. His children will always cherish the memories of their childhood vacations.
His garden was also a great love of his, and he spent many nights working late in the yard with only a headlamp to light his way. He was especially talented at growing hydrangeas, and his family will continue to enjoy the hydrangea bushes he tended at his home in Gloucester.
Above all, he cherished his family and his time with his children and grandchildren. They brought him much joy, pride, and love. He will be greatly missed.
He was the beloved husband of the late Barbara Logan. He was a loving father to Christopher Logan of Wakefield, Suzanne Glazer and her husband Alan of Milton, Andrew Logan and his wife Rohini of Amherst, Andrea Logan of Gloucester, and John Logan and his wife Sarah of Fairhaven. He was a doting “Papa” to five grandchildren: Kiera, Colin, Sejal, Iris, and Samuel.
Visitation for relatives and friends will be held at the McDonald Funeral Home, 19 Yale Ave., Wakefield on Thursday August 3 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. His Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10:00 on Friday August 4 at St. Maria Goretti Church, 112 Chestnut St., Lynnfield MA 01940.
