Stuart Kinslow, 68, Bismarck, passed away April 28, 2020 at Sanford
Medical Center, Fargo. There will be a graveside service noon Monday,
Oct. 12, 2020, at the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery, Mandan.
was born May 11, 1951, at Hagerstown, Maryland, to Clyde and Hjordis
(Johnson) Kinslow. He grew up near Rogers and Dazey and graduated from
Valley City High School and studied at VCSU. Logan joined the Army in
1971 and served until 1984. While in the Army, he was stationed in South
Korea and Germany. That is when he married Kum Ok Han, and had his only
son, Matthew. He and Kum Ok Han later divorced. He joined the North
Dakota National Guard in 1985 and retired in 1995. With the National
Guard, he helped build bridges in Honduras, as a heavy equipment
operator, he also worked in the mess hall feeding soldiers. After he
left the military, he continued his duties, by working with the DAV and
other veteran organizations.
to ailments with his body, Logan was not the best soldier, but if you
looked up patriot in the dictionary, he definitely fit the bill. He
dedicated his life to serving veterans, senior citizens, and those in
need. He worked with Meals on Wheels for as long as his son can
remember, he was also an honored member of the patriot guard, DAV and
other veteran and volunteer organizations. Either filling bags of sand
during floods, or directing traffic for a memorial, he always kept
himself busy helping people, especially veterans and their families.
worked for Hardee's and Burger King. Regulars in Valley City remember
Logan for his sarcasm and love of making people smile. He was often
giving the locals a hard time when they were going through the
drive-thru. Luckily, he hardly ever messed up an order, so he didn't
have to get it reciprocated.
enjoyed frequenting the local library, and often read through stacks
and stacks of books. He also enjoyed war and military movies and
documentaries. But his favorite hobby was showing photos of his
grandkids and family to others, he was so proud of them. Logan also gave
the best hugs.
survived by his son, Matthew (Kiesha) Kinslow, Aurora, Colorado; four
sisters, Pat (Don) Maleck, Edith (Randy) Johnson, Deb (Jim) Hegdahl, all
of Valley City, and Rachael (Rory) McCloud, Billings, Montana; two
brothers, Clyde Kinslow, Sparks, Nevada, and John Kinslow, Fargo; and
two granddaughters, Violet and Lydia.
was preceded in death by his father, Clyde Kinslow; mother, Hjordis
Campbell; sister, Mary Holsen; and brothers, Allan Kinslow and Peter
