Logan Gotto-Tkalcic, 25, went home to be with Jesus on December 17, 2019. He was born December 14, 1994 in Cuyahoga Falls to Stacy (Dave) Gotto-Tripepi and Michael Tkalcic.
25 years ago, God gave me the most precious gift and allowed me to be Logan’s mom. He was a blessing to my life and when I would ask him what he was doing he would tell me, “Mom, I’m just trying to be happy.” I am anxiously awaiting the day I will see my sweet sweet Logan again in Heaven - Mom
Logan was the most protective brother who always wanted the best for me. He always had a smile on his face and a big bear hug to give for all his family. He was brother first and my friend second. He grew up to have the biggest heart and cared about what he was doing. I will miss him every day – Brenna
Logan was the best brother I could ever ask for he always wanted to make me laugh when we would sit next to the fire and tell stories - Landon
He is fun and nice. It is very fun when he would rough house with me. That is my favorite memory – Jayden
Logan, he never failed to make anyone smile, he brightened people’s day. He was funny, he was such a loving person. He was also such a hard worker and would do anything you would ever ask him to do – Emma
Logan was a wholehearted person, he never failed to put a smile on someone’s face – Miya
My nephew was a great person; had lots of big dreams in life and was a hard worker. He loved his family - Uncle Bud
Over the years I have shared many memorable special conversations with my sweet Logan. Like I do with all my nieces and nephews, a lot of our talks were more like lectures from my end, but he always patiently listened anyway. He worked very hard to be the man that his family was proud of and his paint covered work boots are proof of that. He was the best big cousin to my kids. I will miss his ornery smile and big hugs most of all - Aunt Ray
