Logan Evan Schatz, of Allan, SK, passed away tragically on April 6, 2018, at the age of 20.
Logan was born in Saskatoon to Bonnie and Kelly Schatz on September 16, 1997. Logan will be greatly missed by his parents, Bonnie and Kelly Schatz, sister Courtney (Tyler) Gilroyed and niece Claire, sister Kayla Schatz (Brendan Hamilton), brother Brandon Schatz (Maryssa Wilde), sister Meagan Schatz (Cody Hartley), girlfriend Amy Olynick, and grandparents Bruno and Phyllis Schatz, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. He is predeceased by grandmother Etta Schatz, and grandparents Roy and Anne Evans. Logan grew up in Allan, where he attended school for his elementary years. He started his minor hockey journey in Allan, but later played in various communities, including Viscount, Colonsay, Clavet, and Warman, and for the SaskValley Vipers. At the age of fifteen, hockey took him to Beardy’s, and during this time, he lived in Martensville. Soon after, Logan was called up to play for the Humboldt Broncos as an underage player. Logan remained with the Bronco family for the next four years, two and a half in which he was honoured as the team captain. He attended Humboldt Collegiate and was able to graduate in his hometown of Allan. Over the course of his hockey career, Logan became a part of three loving billet families: Georjeana and Dean Christianson (Madilyn and Ryder), Lance and Michelle Unger (Chase, Madi, and Drayke), and Colin and Amanda Brochu (Miller, Duke, and Sean). Ball hockey was another one of Logan’s passions; it took him all over the country along with overseas, where he represented Team Canada. His local team in Saskatoon was the Rotten Donkeys, and he loved to play against his older brother’s team. Logan also represented Saskatchewan at Men’s Ball Hockey Nationals with the Saskatoon Buffalo. When Logan was off the ice, he excelled in track and field. He also loved golfing, working out in the gym, being the life of the party (he was the beer pong champion), and at a young age, he even experimented in dance. Logan was a born leader who lit up every room with a smile and a hug. His loud, contagious laughter filled any space and often got him into trouble. Logan was a kind-hearted role model who motivated young athletes to pursue their dreams. Above all, family meant everything to Logan. The five siblings share a special bond, and his presence will be forever missed, but never forgotten. A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, April 15th, at 1pm at the Allan Communiplex, with a reception to follow. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Logan’s legacy. During the service, anyone wishing to share a story, memory, poem, or song dedicated to Logan will be invited to do so by his family. Flowers and condolences may be sent to Box 308 Allan SK, S0K 0C0 / #208 Maple Drive.
