Obituary: Logan, James Dee Leonetti

Age 71

LOGAN, James Dee Leonetti

Born in Spokane on September 3, 1944 to a family of colossal story tellers who spun hunting and adventure tales of life in Idaho.

James saw the awesome beauty and vastness of cosmic places and cultures with the artist’s hand and eye.

A sensible and unimpeachable talented genius of a man, he embraced life, was lost, but now found in a kinder universe of ideas and molecules.

Socially concerned and aware, Jim lived in a golden liquid place replete with deities of his choosing and open to love.

Looking for the perfect vision of light, or a pen and ink or charcoal sketch, the artist bathes in the refracted light of friends while camping alone at times.

A prolific artist, actor and educator, he lived in Italy, Asia and Portland, Oregon in his later years.

Jame Dee Leonetti Logan died March 6, 2016 from heart complications at Deaconess Hospital in Spokane, WA.
Donations may be made in his name to Blueprints for Learning (an art centered daycare/non-profit in Spokane) 35 W. Main Ave., #280, Spokane, WA 99201.
