Logan Schoenhardt was a cherished son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, friend, Patriot Super Fan and Jedi Knight. He died peacefully in his sleep on Monday, February 13, 2017. Logan was courageous and strong as he faced his fight with cancer from the age of three. Everyone who knew him appreciated his intelligence, depth of understanding, quick-witted humor, and his ability to persevere in the face of difficult circumstances. Logan was a life-long Star Wars fan, and his life experience formed him into a true Jedi Knight. Logan was an inspiration to many people for his ability to endure hardship and yet still have a positive attitude and live his life to the fullest measure. Logan loved many things. He was a true naturalist, reading endless books about dinosaurs, mammals, geology and nature, and visiting The Roaring Brook Nature Center, the Mystic Aquarium and the Connecticut Science Center as often as he could. He enjoyed attending farm camp at Simsbury's Flamig Farm as well as visiting the animals there. He loved hiking, fishing, swimming and being outdoors. He was a member of the Simsbury Fish and Game Club and thoroughly enjoyed the opening day Fishing Derby. This Autumn, he went fishing on the Connecticut Sound. He loved to go to the family cabin in the Adirondacks with his Dad and Grandfather. He also loved to spend summer days on the beach at his grandmother's cottage in Niantic. He vacationed every summer with his family on Nantucket. Logan had many significant experiences. He was an honorary member of the Air National Guard 118th Airlift Squadron, Flying Yankees, through the Pilot for a Day Program. He was also an honorary Junior Fire Fighter for the squad on the same day. Last October, Logan was made a Defender for a Day with 103rd Security Forces Squadron in the CT Air National Guard. Logan enjoyed family weekends at The Hole in The Wall Gang camp in Ashford. Logan attended The Master's School in Simsbury, where he had many friends and made a lasting impact on the lives of all who got to know him and his story. Logan was treated at Connecticut Children's Medical Center where he received excellent care that lifted his spirits and extended his life. He was friends with everyone from the security guards and front desk personnel to the nurses, doctors and surgeons. He also received excellent treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital and was housed by the generous people at Christopher's Haven in Boston. Logan was also an avid sports fan. He played Spring and Fall soccer in the town of Simsbury since age 5. His team this past Fall, the Simsbury Rebels, were a great joy to Logan. They stood and cheered as Logan scored the last goal of the 2016 season. Logan was an honorary member of the University of Hartford men's basketball team, the Hartford Hawks. This wonderful friendship was made possible through the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation. Logan considered his teammates his brothers. He loved them and truly felt like he was part of the team. Logan and his best friend Andrew Kerwin followed the New England Patriots football team very closely. The two friends were able to attend 2 games together this past year. On December 3, Logan fulfilled a lifelong dream and met his hero Tom Brady. Logan greatly admired Tom's leadership on the field, his determination and perseverance. Logan stated that he wanted to have the same qualities in himself and that certainly was the case. Logan is survived by his parents Matthew and Josephine and sister Keara of West Simsbury, Grandmother Rosemary Hughes of Niantic, Grandparents Richard and Lynne Schoenhardt of West Simsbury, Grandparents James and Barbara Shay of North Granby, and many loving uncles, aunts, and cousins. Logan's family will receive friends Thursday, February 23 from 4-8pm at Carmon Funeral Home & Family Center, 301 Country Club Road, Avon. The funeral service will be held at Covenant Presbyterian Church "The Barn", 124 Old Farms Road, Simsbury on Friday, February 24 at 12 noon. In lieu of flowers, the family would like to suggest that donations to be made to The Master's School, 36 Westledge Road, West Simsbury, CT 06092 or the Cancer Survivors Network c/o Simsbury Bank, 27 Dale Road, Avon, CT 06001.
