Logan Taylor was born in Medford, Oregon, on January 11, 1997. He was the proud owner of Sasquatch Reforestation and was a contract firefighter for ODF Southwest Oregon District. This is where he loved to be and where his life unexpectedly ended on August 18, 2022, on the Rum Creek Fire near Gallice, Oregon.
Logan had a captivating smile, which spread to anyone in proximity to him. With his contagious smile and polite demeanor, it was only natural that Logan would make friends wherever he went.
Logan loved and cherished his family and friends. He delighted in bringing people together through food and conversation, which resulted in joy and laughter. Logan had the remarkable ability to make people feel warm, welcome, and included, and because of his qualities people have always been drawn to him. If a guest was a stranger at the beginning of the evening, they left as a friend.
Logan had a great passion for the outdoors and all the Pacific Northwest had to offer. He enjoyed fishing with his father and swimming and camping with friends. His love for nature was only surpassed by his love for his friends and family.
Growing up attending reforestation work with his father and mother from the time he was born, Logan took the opportunity to start his own reforestation business. Following in the footsteps of his great-grandfather, grandfather, and father, Logan became the fourth generation of foresters in the Taylor family. Working in the woods was where he needed to be—climbing, thinning, helping landowners, and fighting wildfires was in his blood. As a young entrepreneur, he started his own business, Sasquatch Reforestation. Through his company, he employed his father and longtime friends, Curtis and Austin.
We will all remember him as the friend, brother, nephew, grandson, cousin, and son who was always ready to help with any task and expected nothing in return. We will forever cherish Logan’s kindness, humility, and empathy for all he encountered. While our time with Logan was far too short, he managed to positively affect every person he came across.
