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.
