Charles Logan

Jan. 8, 1946 – Oct. 6, 2012

Trevor passed away on Saturday the 6 of October 2012 at his residence, “The Gaslight Inn,” in Seattle, Washington in the arms of his life-long best friend and business partner, Stephen Bennett; Linda, his sister; and dear friends by his side.

Born in Vancouver, Canada, to the late John and Ruby Logan, Trevor is survived by his sister, Linda Molloy and brothers, Robert and Bruce Logan.

While working on cruise ships to Alaska in the summers, Trevor completed two years of higher education at Simon Fraser College. In the 60’s he decided it was time to follow his dream of moving to San Francisco, where he perfected what would become his profession of quality interior color design and painting. Although while in San Francisco, Trevor met and made many wonderful friends for life, he had a strong desire to own his own home and a great need to surround himself with pets. He realized that this intense goal would never happen in San Francisco, so in 1970 he made a decision to move to Seattle, Wash.

After moving to Seattle, Trevor fulfilled his dreams by saving and bringing back to life five traditional homes, starting and operating a quirky restaurant, “Animal Crackers,” as well as forming and operating a professional painting and interior color business. In addition to those accomplishments, he created “The Gaslight Inn” on Capital Hill which has become a “Seattle Tradition” in the bed and breakfast industry.

One of Trevor’s most passionate dreams was to have a place to get away from it all. This was fulfilled in 1991 by buying 10 wooded acres on beautiful Lopez Island where he designed and built a log cabin and with a guest house. Trevor’s retreat on Lopez gave him the solitude and peace he sought, where he spent his happiest times with family, friends and dogs and became a changed man. Trevor’s life was filled with love, he felt so blessed and honored to have each and every friend in his life. Trevor will be missed by each person whose life he touched but his spirit will live in the memories carried by all who loved him. In lieu of flowers please make memorial gifts in Trevor’s name to the Lopez Island Animal Protection Society, PO Box 747 Lopez Island, WA 98261.
