Logan Joseph Martin, son of Metairie, La., PMP Ed Martin, died unexpectedly of a heart attack on Christmas Eve morning. He was 44.

Logan Martin is survived by wife Lisette Vicknair Martin and sons Brody Logan Martin and Wyatt Logan Martin. Additionally, he is survived by parents Loretta Logan Martin and Edward Joseph Martin Jr.

Ed Martin is a well known figure in pest management, having been involved in the industry for 50+ years. He is owner of Metairie, La.-based Terminix Service Co.

Logan Martin was a graduate of Jesuit High School and LSU, with a degree in civil engineering. He was director of Public Works in St. Bernard Parish.

“Logan was loving, giving, caring, and talented, and so kind always doing something for others. He loved to cook, he loved life and having fun, and lit up every room he went into. He could do or fix anything, and he loved to sing and to laugh and make everyone else laugh, too. He will be very sadly missed by all,” read an obituary on the Leitz-Eagan Funeral Home website.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Logan Martin's memory to Jesuit High School at 4133 Banks Street, New Orleans, LA, 70119. Please indicate that the donation is for the Logan J. Martin Scholarship Fund.
