The beautiful young life of Logan James Pfeffer, 17, ended unexpectedly in the early morning of Friday, June 16, 2023, the result of a tragic automobile accident. Words cannot express the sadness and sorrow his parents are experiencing at this time – first learning of and now living with the loss of their only child.
Logan’s parents, Jamie and Rachelle (Jantzen) Pfeffer, welcomed their sweet boy into this world on January 25, 2006 in Alexandria, MN where the couple lived and raised their son. Logan’s parents also helped establish deep roots in the Osakis area for him since this is where he spent countless hours at the farm with his family hanging out, mowing the lawn, driving tractors and growing his love for anything with an engine or wheels - even if the engine didn’t work. It was the perfect environment that cultivated his inquisitive nature of wanting to figure out “how stuff works” from a very young age. In addition, Logan also enjoyed countless hours with friends and family riding snowmobile, hunting, and trap shooting, to name a few of his many hobbies.
Logan’s formal education began at Zion Lutheran School in Alexandria where he attended through the 3rd grade before transitioning to public school in Alexandria where he just completed his junior year of high school. Logan was looking forward to his senior year and life beyond graduation with a potential educational and career opportunity with John Deere already in the works.
Logan is survived by his parents, Jamie and Rachelle (Jantzen) Pfeffer; grandparents, Dale Pfeffer, Kim Pfeffer, Delmer Jantzen, and Robert Walsh., Sr.; aunts and uncles, Charity (Joe) Kuperus, Cassie (TJ) Mead, Robert Walsh, Jr., Wesley Walsh, Martin (Danielle Carlson) Walsh, Shawn (Darcie) Pfeffer, Brooke Pfeffer, Duane (Cindy Lanigan) Jantzen, Rodney (Jean Becker) Jantzen, Deanna Roderick, Ryan (Dawn Stubbs) Jantzen, LaNell (Kevin) Hardy, Kendall Jantzen, and Rhonda (Troy) Issendorf; as well as many beloved cousins, friends and extended family.
He was preceded in death by grandma, Mary Jo Walsh, great-aunts, Fayette Tenhoff and Lynnette Schmidt; great-grandparents, Phyllis and James Schmidt; great-grandparents, Theresa and Conrad Pfeffer; great-uncle, Leroy Pfeffer; great-grandparents, Jim and Betty Walsh; and grandmother, Elsie Jantzen.
Logan made such an impact on so many lives during his short time with us and he will forever be remembered as a talented and loving son and as a deeply kind, devoted and caring human to so many friends and all of his “found brothers” who knew him best.
A celebration of life service will be held at 11 am, Thursday, June 22, 2023, at Calvary Lutheran Church in Alexandria with Pastor Hans Dahl officiating. Music is provided by Nolan Weisz. Please honor Logan’s memory by attending his celebration dressed casually, preferably in jeans and cowboy boots.
Visitation is 4-7 p.m., with a time of sharing beginning at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, June 21, 2023, at Calvary Lutheran Church and will continue one hour prior to the service.
Honorary urnbearers are his first cousins.
