Logan Philip Brown a.k.a. Logan Philip Van Dam Daughtry, 15, gained his wings January 4, 2020, at his family’s apartment in Birmingham, AL after an intense 11-month battle with osteosarcoma.
Logan entered this world September 19, 2004, in Virginia Beach, Virginia to his mother Samantha Tootle and biological father, Benjamin Brown. What Logan loved most was to make all of those around him smile. This was often achieved through silly dance moves and incredibly awful jokes that forced laughter out of us all. Logan was always a sensitive and caring soul. He loved reading, drawing, swimming, photography, and especially gaming. Though Logan was homeschooled during the last few years of his life, he was still loved and surrounded by many friends. He especially loved hanging out with his best friend since the age of 3, Daniel Fricks. Logan was a camp counselor in training in Topeka, Kansas, where he became CPR certified. He also participated in East Montgomery Baseball every season and was proud of his achievements as well as being a part of a team.
Logan is survived by his mother and father, Samantha and Christopher Daughtry; his younger brother Corbin Daughtry; his maternal grandparents, Teresa Hutchinson Foster, Rex and Kaye Tootle; his paternal grandparents, Philip and Teresa Brown, Danna and Scott Daughtry, and Gloria Lambert; his paternal great-grandparents, Marie England, Anne Carroll, Ferris and Freddy Daughtry; biological father, Benjamin Brown; aunt and uncle, Tracy and Greg Graham; His aunts, Adrienne Tootle; Savannah Daughtry; Ashley Silva; Megan Brown; Angi Gauldin; his cousins, Aniya Silva, Shelby Maddox, Ambry, TJ, and Marcus Graham, Luke and Dallas Daughtry, along with many other loving aunts, uncles, and cousins extended through the Hutchinson, Tootle, Brown, and Daughtry families.
We are comforted knowing that those family members who passed before him were able to greet him at the gates of heaven.
A homecoming celebration will take place at Mulder Memorial United Methodist Church in Wetumpka, AL on January 11, 2020, 10:30 a.m. followed by a gathering of family and friends at the home of Tracy and Greg Graham. Knowing Logan would want everyone to be comfortable, the family has requested casual dress for the service, including Marvel t-shirts and jeans or even in costume.
The family would also like to extend our thanks and appreciation to all of the doctors and nurses of Children’s of Alabama and MD Anderson, the amazing NEGU, Make-A-Wish, Hope for Autumn, Alex’s Lemonade Stand, and the Andrew McDonough B+ Foundations, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Family Reach, and aTeam Ministries.
