Logan W. Blake, 17, of Cedar Rapids, went to be with the Lord Tuesday, July 1, 2014. Visitation will be Friday, July 4, from 3 to 7 p.m. at Cedar Memorial Park Funeral Home. Funeral services will be 10 a.m. Saturday, July 5, at First Assembly of God, with Pastor Jim Coyle officiating. Burial will take place at Cedar Memorial Park Cemetery.
Logan was born to Candice "Candy" Blake and Mark Blake on June 10, 1997, in Columbus, Ohio. Logan greeted everyone with a mile-wide smile and a huge bear hug. He would have been a senior at Washington High School this year.
Logan enjoyed biking, power lifting, disc golf and playing Frisbee. He worked at Cottage Grove Place as a dietary tech.
He was taken from us much too soon, but his spirit, quest for adventure, and love for life will be with us always.
Those left to honor Logan include his mother, Candice "Candy" Blake; his father, Mark, and step-mother, Lisa Blake; his loving brother, Hunter; grandparents, William and Ruth Mund of Cedar Rapids, Stella and Fred Meyers of Newark, Ohio, Betsy Schmuck of Cedar Rapids and Carl and Joyce Schmuck of Eau Claire, Wis.; girlfriend, Brianna McPherson; best friend, David Bliss; special companion, his dog, Sadie Blake; and numerous loving aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, classmates and neighbors.
The family is so grateful for all of the wide-ranging rescue efforts involving an urban search and rescue team, a camera-mounted tractor and land search teams made up of police, fire and city employees and countless volunteers. A special thanks to Pastor Jim Coyle, Pastor Tim Carter and Officer Anne Deutmeyer.
Memorials may be made to Farmers State Bank, Logan Blake Memorial, 1240 Eighth Ave,, Marion, IA 52302.
