Born in Amherst Point, NS, he was a son of the late Austin and Ethel (Clark) Logan.

He lived his entire life in Amherst Point where he owned and operated "Homestead Farm" with his son Stephen.  As a lifetime member of Holstein Canada, Don was passionate about farming and considered it to be an overall way of life from which he never retired.

Don was predeceased by his first wife Kay (Moore) and step grandson Derrick MacDonald.
