Kenneth "Kenny" Edward Logie
August 4, 1971 ~ January 8, 2022
Resided in: Leicester, NC
Kenneth “Kenny” Edward Logie, 50, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, January 8, 2022.
A native of Brockton, MA, he was the son of the late Kenneth and Barbara MacHarrie Logie. Kenny had a lifelong fascination with science fiction. He’d read voraciously from the age of 4 and in social situations/social commentary, he could always be relied upon to provide quotes from the likes of Robert Heinlein, Terry Brooks, Douglas Adams, et al. Kenny was also a devoted Star Trek (all iterations) and Firefly fan. His tastes in music began and ended with heavy metal.
He worked from his teenage years in many aspects of the service industry, maintenance, and the like, a true “jack of all trades”. He was employed for half a dozen years or so as a tow truck driver contracted with AAA of Massachusetts and the anecdotes he shared from that time were sobering.
Kenny moved to NC in 2009 and worked in the engineering department of the Renaissance Hotel Asheville until his untimely passing.
For decades he has been passionate about playing darts. Many nights of the week were spent with members of his dart team, traveling to tournaments in various places, serving as captain of a series of local teams over the years, most recently team G-SNAK. We invite and encourage his many teammates to join him at his visitation and subsequent Celebration of Life to share a final game with him.
He is survived by sister Linda Ann LaFlamme, her husband Michael Romeo LaFlamme; sister Caryl Ann Sinfield, her husband Joseph Victor Sinfield; niece Jennifer Lynn Sinfield Braswell, her husband Christopher Paul Braswell, great nieces Izzabella Lynn and Gwyndolen Rose Braswell; sister Debra Ann Andrade (Boo), her husband Jose’ Andrade (Matinho), nephew Jorge (Djalo) and his wife Ruth Andrade, niece Rosa Matos (Totchinha) and great nieces/nephews Elijah, Cassidy, Jorge (Gio), Elijah, and Eramius.
Kenny will be sorely missed by Toffee, Tardis, Tetley, Trappist, Tobie, Barnaby, Darcy, Oscar, Abigail, Ysabeau, and Bennett.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Saturday, January 22 from 2:00 until 4:00 PM at the Renaissance Asheville Hotel, 31 Woodfin Street, Asheville NC. A visitation will be held on Thursday, January 20 from 6:00 until 8:00 PM at Groce Funeral Home at Lake Julian, 72 Long Shoals Road, Arden, NC.

I was there for your first date (you weren’t even 2). You patiently took part my high school psychology experiment, and then kept asking when I would visit if I brought my “color papers.” I’ve known your family longer than you have. It was hard to believe when you turned 50. It is even harder to believe you’re gone, my “brother.” Safe journey home. –D
Thank you so much D
Dan and Pam Covington
Rest in peace, Kiddo. You will be missed.
There are no words.
You will be missed, dear friend. Much love.
Michael and Linda, we are so very sorry to hear of Kenny’s passing. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. We both enjoyed working with Kenny at the Renaissance.
I learned about Ken’s passing through my school group. I’m so sorry to hear it. I remember how smart he was from when we were in school together. I am so sorry for everyone who has lost him.
I miss you my baby brother..I just don’t have the words to express how devastated I am.
We are deeply sorry that you have passed away. May your love ones find conform and joy in remember you.
From the MacHarrie’s
Your Cousin Ian and Family (Jessica, Julia, and Ian Jr)
May your candle shine forever.
You will be sorely missed by so many. Rest in peace my friend.
I’m so sorry. I am just in a state of shock. I miss you so much Kenny.
Kenny and I were best friends back in school. He used to talk my ear off about all things science fiction related. We had a lot of good times together. My dad thought the world of him too. I am really grateful to have been his friend and saddened to the core that he’s gone. All of my love and sympathy to his family.
We grew up Pne each side of Mister Doughnuts, We were Nija’s. We would terrorize the maintenance men of DW Feild Park
dressed in Camo or Nika suits and retreat into the woods. We would take the Buss to New England Comics you would blow thru reading them in min he was done and I was only a couple pages in
I wish I didn’t take this long to look for you 😪. We had a heist or two that I won’t mention oopps. I loved ypu mom, she loved swordfish and she would take me along to Blanchards Pub and I would listen to how historic and cool that place was hundreds of year ago lol.. I hope you cashed in the Comics or left then to someone that deserves them. We never sold each other out, never owed each other anything that was payed back and you had my back even when I managed to get put asses kicked.
Love you Kenny, I wish I told you
Sorry for all thr typos Kenny would say I was stupid. Oh ya when his Sister gut him a job at McDonalds and someone forgot to account for 100’s of FROZEN patties that don’t taste good on the grill btw 😉.
BLANCHARDS TAVERN 🍺 I listened.
