October 14, 1924 ~ October 30, 2021
Logan C Mattson, devoted husband and beloved patriarch of the Mattson family, passed away peacefully on October 30, 2021 at the age of 97.
Logan was born on October 14, 1924, in St. Charles, Idaho to Chauncey Mattson and Myrtle Bunderson. He loved playing basketball and graduated from Fielding High School, Paris, Idaho, in 1942. Logan joined the US Navy in 1943 and became a signalman on the USS Freestone, serving for two-and-a-half years in the Pacific Theatre thru the end of World War II. After proposing via phone call, he married Carol Teuscher in the Salt Lake City Temple in 1946. Logan attended Idaho State University, becoming the first member of his family to ever go to college, and graduated with a degree in Pharmacy in 1950. He spent his adult life working for Merck and Company as a pharmaceutical rep, starting in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and spending over 30 years in Ogden, Utah.
The outdoors was a passion for Logan: as a boy he rode his horse through the hills outside of Bear Lake, he served in the Boy Scouts of America, and loved backpacking. He was passionate about his yard, growing beautiful roses, and loved watching birds feed in his trees. He also loved to travel, often recounting visiting his brother in Alaska, regular Yellowstone trips, road tripping through each county in Utah the centennial year and visiting relatives in the Pacific Northwest.
Logan was a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served as a Bishop, High Councilman, Sunday School teacher, and on two missions with Carol, at both Temple Square and the Hill Cumorah Pageant. His example of service and faith left a lasting legacy for family and friends.
Logan has two sons, Kyle (Leisa) and Rand (Cynthia) in Mountain Green, UT. He is survived by his siblings, Glenn Mattson and Theda Weston; Rand and Cynthia; five grandchildren and three great-grandsons. He was preceded in death by his wife, Carol; son, Kyle; daughter-in-law, Leisa; and grandson, Kyle.
