Lawrence Eldon Logan

Lawrence Eldon Logan, 79 of Moberly, went home to sing with his Savior July 23, 2021 at the University of Missouri Hospital after a brief illness.

Eldon was born October 15, 1941 in Hurley, MO to Lawrence and Gladys Logan (Tharp). Eldon graduated from Hurley High School and later from Oklahoma University Technical School, Deans Honor Roll, and later at Memphis Tennessee School of Advanced Jewelry Repair.  Eldon then used his talents as a Jeweler/Watchmaker for 43 years, and as a Manager/Owner in the Jewelry business at three different cities during his career.

Eldon married Martha “Sharlene” Maxwell on August 4, 1961 in Union City Community Church and shared 59 wonderful years together.  

Eldon continued to serve in each community by being president of the Lions Clubs and Downtown Merchant Associations, as well Board Member in the churches of all three communities.  He served 12 years on the Missouri Jewelers Association and State Delegate to the American Watchmakers Association.  He was a proud member of the First Assembly of God Church where he served as Teacher/Board member for many years.

When he wasn’t serving his community and church, he fully enjoyed hunting, fly fishing, and gardening (and giving from it). 

Eldon was preceded in death by his parents (Lawrence and Gladys Logan), two sisters (Earnisten Ludwig and Mary Lou Curbow), and a brother (Curtis Ray Logan).  Eldon is survived by his wife Sharlene of Moberly, MO; son Mark Logan of Carthage, MO and grandsons Aiden James Logan and Keegan Thomas Logan all of Carthage, MO; extended family and friends.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Sunday, August 22, 2021 at 1:30 p.m. at the First Assembly of God Church in Moberly, MO.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to the Building Fund at First Assembly of God Church, 120 W. Outer Road, Moberly, MO 65270.

Eldon , whom I drank many a cup of coffee with, was one of finest persons I have ever known. He had a passion for gardening as the number of raised garden beds in his back yard attested too. In my mind , as his neighbor, part of me still expects to see him sitting on a small stool, that I made for him , working on his raised garden beds. I will miss him as a friend and neighbor. Eldon was well versed on the News , and , like all intelligent people, he was skeptical about politics and politicians. Furthermore, he thought that the amount of money our government was spending was scary. Eldon participated in security for his church, and he was proud to be a part of that group.When he read the news, he observed that there was a growing number of violent incidences at churches. He had a sense of duty, as others in the security group did, in protecting his fellow parishioners from the violent actions of others. He was proud of the men and women who dedicated a part of their time to the service and protection of others in their Church. As a fly fisherman, he tied his own flies. He was meticulous whether it came to tying flies, working on clocks, or repairing watches. He also taught others how to fly fish. Often, if a person wasn't having any luck catching fish with a fly and Eldon was, Eldon would give him or her a copy of the fly he was using , and , not surprising, they would start catching fish. He and his wife were proud of Mark , his son , and Aiden and Keegan their grand children. He and his wife loved being with them , as can be seen , in the numerous fishing adventures they shared with them at Bennett Springs. I don't think I have done Eldon much service in writing so little about him. Mind you, I suspect that this is true for many deceased people.
