Walter Logwin

September 2, 1937 — June 23, 2019

Walter Logwin, 81, of Neillsville, died Sunday, June 23, 2019, at the Neillsville Care and Rehab Facility.

Walter Logwin was born September 2, 1937, in a small village in Ukraine.  He was the son of Peter and Katerina Logwin.  His family moved to Germany during the war.  At age 17, Walter came by ship to America.  He lived in Pennsylvania until he moved to Chicago, where he worked at a furniture factory.  He saved money to buy a farm in Wisconsin, where he later brought his bride, Claudia Logwin, in 1975.  They farmed together for many years, and then both took jobs in town.  Walter is fondly remembered for his excellent care of the Neillsville Hospital grounds until his retirement in 2002.   During retirement, he enjoyed working in his large garden, feeding the birds, listening to his classical music, and fishing on occasion. Walter was a man of faith and attended services at Living Hope Evangelical Free Church in Neillsville.

He is survived by his wife, Claudia Logwin, a sister, Lydia Dodte (Neillsville), and nieces and nephews, Walter (Beth) Taylor, Lydia (Jim) Johnson, Lily (Mike) Woo, Linda (Tony) Woo, all of McHenry, IL, Tommy (April) Dodte of Black River Falls, WI, Ruth (Steve) Moser of Neillsville, WI, Jonas (Molly) Nazaruk of CO, Ruth (Jim) Hornbrook (Mexico City, Mexico) and Rebecca (Neal) Charleston (West Chicago, IL).

He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Olga Taylor.
