2/14/19–Ryan Thomas Logan

Ryan Thomas Logan was born August 15, 1987 in Kansas City, MO and departed
this earthly life February 10, 2019 in Nashville, TN

Proceeded in death by adoring late father Stephen Milo Logan, Maternal
Grandparents Dick and Kate Shasteen, Paternal Grandparents, Tommy Logan and
Mary Jane Logan, and Beloved Golden Retrievers Allie Girl, Iniki and
Sophie.

Survived by devoted Mother Julia Logan-Mayes and husband Steve Mayes of
Estill Springs, endearing Brothers Trent Logan (Maria Santiago and Rebecca
Estrada), Tullahoma and Alex Mayes (Elaina Evans), North Potomac, MD,
Paternal Step-Grandmother, Judy Logan, Winchester, and many precious aunts,
uncles, cousins & friends.

Ryan was a graduate of Tullahoma High School and attended Cabrillo College
in California.

Most recently he resided in Nashville and was employed by The George Jones.
In addition, he lived an adventurous life with his family and many beloved
friends along the way across this land in Maryland, Pennsylvania,
Connecticut, Hawaii, California, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

Ryan had an adventurous spirit whether it be honing his skills in
photography or enjoying every opportunity to cycle, hike camp, skydive,
rock climb, snow board and numerous water sports. Ryan recently said he
was grateful for having a loving family and friends that have given him the
opportunities to improve his life, the lust for travel, tickets booked for
more traveling, future plans for a great job opportunity, and his late
father’s job which gave him his lust for travel. He said most importantly
he was thankful for a safe place to lay his head down to sleep. As he got
older he found that one really doesn’t need everything you thought needed
when younger. Happiness and love is something that money could never buy.
Ryan
lived BIG in this life, was a fun and faithful friend, he was kind,
compassionate and helpful. His love of nature took him many places in his
short life from the oceans coast to coast (and beyond) to the peaks of
Yosemite and Colorado and the lakes of his beloved Tennessee. He will
always be remembered by his family and friends for his great love of life,
his wonderful personality, his beautiful infectious smile and contagious
laugh.
