Logan Scott Smith, 36, of Mason City passed away on May 25, 2024, at his home.

A Funeral Service will be 10:30 AM Monday, June 3, 2024 at Trinity Lutheran Church, 213 N Pennsylvania Ave, Mason City, IA with Pastor Dan Gerrietts officiating. Burial will take place in Memorial Park Cemetery, Mason City, Iowa.

Visitation will be held from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM, Sunday June 2, 2024 at Hogan-Bremer-Moore Colonial Chapel 126 3rd St NE Mason City, Iowa.

Logan was born on January 24, 1988, in Mason City, to Scott and Ronda (Field) Smith. He grew up in Mason City and Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and graduated from Mason City High School in 2006.

Logan was baptized at St. Paul Lutheran Church and confirmed at Trinity Lutheran Church. He maintained his faith and would engage in deep conversations with others about his beliefs.

Logan was a happy-go-lucky little boy who grew into a loving, caring adult. He enjoyed sports, including football, basketball, and soccer. He excelled in cross country and track as a youth and in high school, participating in several national races in his teens. His interests went from there to weightlifting, arm wrestling, and Kung Fu where he earned a black belt. He sang in choir, played bass guitar in several bands, and played the piano. He graduated from North Iowa Area Community College and the University of Northern Iowa with a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics and physics. He was chosen by the physics professors at UNI to receive their departmental scholarship. He was inducted into the Kappa Mu Epsilon math honor society and the Golden Key International Honour Society.

Logan was exceptionally good with children, and he worked for several years at a charter school in the Twin Cities for troubled teens. He loved animals, especially his dog, Missy. Logan was a deep, critical thinker. He loved studying and talking about the universe, black holes, and nuclear science. He also enjoyed airplanes, exotic cars, and magic. Logan had the biggest heart, and he was the source of a wealth of knowledge and happiness for many people. He loved fiercely and was fiercely loved by his family.

Mental illness plagued him as early as his senior year in high school. In order to cope with his illness, he struggled with the chains of addiction for the last eight years. Through all this, he tried to maintain a cheerful, loving persona and not let the darkness he was truly feeling inside show. Unfortunately, the risks he took caught up with him on May 25th. Logan’s cousin Tate said it best, “I don’t know why sometimes life deprives exceptional people of the life they deserve, but all I can do is believe that they get rewarded in some way, somehow.” We know Logan is now with God and at peace.

Those left to cherish Logan’s memory are his parents; his brother, Levi, sister-in-law, Laura, and niece, Ava, of Ankeny; and many very special aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Logan was welcomed into heaven by his maternal grandparents Irving and Harlys Field; paternal grandparents Chester and Mary Smith; his aunt Babs Smith; and his beloved dog Missy.
