SATANTA — Logan Albert Sprunger, 82, died on Monday, December 4, 2017, at Kearny County Hospital, Lakin, Kansas.
He was the son of Albert and Edith (Hunt) Sprunger. He was born on September 25, 1935, in Garden City, Kansas.
Logan married his college sweetheart, Nitaleen (Roy) Sprunger, on September 1, 1956, in Eaton, Indiana. They made their home in rural Haskell County, Kansas.
He is survived by three sons, Terry Lee Sprunger of Satanta, Kansas, Aaron Linn Sprunger and wife Cindy of Satanta, Kansas, and Roy Logan Sprunger and wife Lynn of Rainier, Oregon; six grandchildren, Michael (Carrie) Sprunger, Nicole (Bryan) Howe, Erin (Danniel) Gaitor, Lacey (Enkaiye) Mollel, Callie Sprunger, Emily Sprunger; and six great-grandchildren, Zion, Stella, Maiyan, Emerson, Isaya and Barrett; along with a host of deeply loved nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Albert and Edith (Hunt) Sprunger; his stepmom, Thelma (Garrett) Sprunger; his brother, Luke Eldon; two sisters, Olive (Sprunger) Alexander and Mardelle (Sprunger) Snook; and his “beautiful bride,” Nitaleen (Roy) Sprunger, of 61 years.
Over the years, Logan shared his love of snowmobiling and motorcycles with his family and friends. He was a Youth Leader and Sunday School teacher for many years and served on various local and national boards in the areas of health care and education. Nothing brought Logan more joy than traveling to see family and friends across the country. Logan was a member of Gideon’s for many years and was deeply committed to missions. He and Nita have supported missionaries and mission work all over the world. It brought particular joy to Logan to support the next generation of missionaries that were grown out of the Pleasant Prairie Church.

Memorial gifts may be mailed to Paul’s-Robson Funeral Home, P.O. Box 747, Satanta, KS 67870 or Pleasant Prairie Church of God, 503 Road EE, Satanta, KS 67870.
