Logan Tyler Flood, age 22, of Peekskill, died on Saturday, March 27, 2015. Flood fought substance abuse for eight years of his short life. He experienced many periods of success, during which he was fully himself, a kind, intuitive, strong and generous young man. Ultimately he lost his battle, and is now another heartbreaking reminder of the heroin epidemic in this country.
He leaves behind his parents, Kathleen Pemble and Charles Flood, his brother, Giliean Pemble Flood, his grandmother, Lois Pemble, and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Flood was born on Aug. 15, 1992, in Manhattan. He was a devoted music enthusiast and could play a little something on any instrument he picked up. He had a curious nature and was a defender of others in need. He attended Haldane and graduated from Peekskill High School.
A Memorial Gathering for Flood has been scheduled for Wednesday, April 1, at St. Mary’s Parish Hall, 1 Chestnut St. in Cold Spring (at the corner of Routes 9D and 301/Main St).
Family, friends and others are welcome from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. The service will be held in the Parish Hall at 7 p.m. A reception will follow.
Flood was an organ donor and has already saved lives by making that choice. In lieu of flowers, donations should be sent to donatelifeny.org/contribution.
We lost our baby brother because of addiction. He was hit by a car but it was drink that killed him. There aren’t enough words to say how sad I am. All addictions are hell on earth and they rob the person of life. You are in my prayers.
Addiction respects no one. I am a survivor, one of many, and my heart & prayers go out to the Logansport family & friends. Peace & hugs.
I’m so sorry and saddened by this loss. The epidemic is real and the victims are far beyond the people who are lost. I’m mostly sad for the family left behind to pick up the pieces. Hoping all find peace in this life and sending love and healing vibes to all who suffer from the horrors of opiate addiction. To Kathleen and family, I’m so sorry for your loss. There are just no words. I will hold space in my daily meditation and pray for healing and love to hold you all tight. In love and light always.
I am so sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers from my house to yours. R. I. P., young man.
May perpetual light shine upon him. Thank you to Logan’s family for speaking the truth– you are brave and you honor your son.
There are no words to make it easy! I will pray for peace and comfort! May God bless you all!
I am truly sorry for your loss, my thoughts any prayers are with you and your family. Love prayers and thoughts…. Bob
We are so saddened by your loss. We remember Logan with fond memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. God Bless you and may God wrap his loving arms around Logan forever.
May you rest in peace.
I did not know Logan personally but I know he was loved. I know his life story was abruptly interrupted. I know the pain of a parent who outlived their child. I am deeply sorry for your loss. I will pray for the Tyler family and for Logan Tyler’s soul. God bless you. *hugs*
