Lee Logan Shaver, passed away Wednesday, November 29, 2023 at age 90 years of age. He was born on January 20, 1933 in Baltimore to parents with southern roots. His father Carl was from Bridgewater, VA and his mother, Martha Rose Logan, was from Harrisonburg, VA. Lee was named after his grandfather Lee Alexander Logan. As a boy until his late teens, he spent summers with his Virginia cousins. His mother’s brothers were the main plastering contractors in Harrisonburg, including James Madison University, which named a residence hall after the Logan family. Lee Logan was taught that craft by his uncle, and did some plastering with a Baltimore company during his senior year in Baltimore City College in order to get a car. His father opened and managed the Baltimore division Home Beneficial Insurance headquartered in Richmond, VA.
After graduating from Baltimore City College, he served in the Navy during the Korean War on the destroyers USS Darby, and then the USS Basilone. After testing in the Navy, he was recommended for Naval Personnel work. After an Honorable Discharge, Lee Logan married his childhood sweetheart Meredyth Ann Hilldrup, while he worked with his father in insurance. That insurance career path did not interest him and he went into the field the Navy said he would do best-personnel. He started out at Montgomery Ward while he took night classes at University of Baltimore. Six years later he graduated with a BA in International Business with the benefit of the GI Bill. Lee then went to work at Lord Baltimore Press, which was bought out by International Paper in 1958, where he was promoted to Head of Personnel. Then he was asked to join Oles Envelope as Human Resource Head in early 80’s. Following that he enjoyed the personal contact in security at Blakehurst Retirement Community. He loved golfing and participated in many tournaments. After moving to Glen Meadows Retirement Community 7 years ago, it didn’r take too long for him to be elected Vice President of the Residents Association and be immersed in committee work.
He served as Trustee in Central Presbyterian Church in Towson, and was ordained as a Deacon, then Elder at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Kingsville. He also lent his expertise with compassion and understanding on the Board of Redeemer Classical Christian School. Lee excelled with an attitude of kindness, friendliness, and helpfulness to be an excellent encourager and ready for a good laugh were appropriate.
He is survived by his wife Meredyth, of 68 years; his two daughters, Cindy Dillon and Darby Standiford; and son-in-law Rev. Ron Standiford. Four grandchildren, Carly Gilchrist with husband, Matt in Augusta, GA; Leah Murray, of Parkville; Drew Dillon with wife, Sarah of Lancaster, PA; and Emily Pollock with husband, Kyle of Hollister, CA. Eight great grandchildren also survive him.
A Memorial Service will be at Glen Meadows Retirement Community on Wednesday, December 27th at 2 PM.
