It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of Patrick Logel on July 12, 2023, surrounded by his family.
Devoted husband to Jackie, loving father to Shannon (Tyson), Kelsey (Kyle), and Brandon, cherished grandfather ("Pa") to Madison.
Predeceased by his amazing father Clare and sister Kerry Louise. Survived by his beloved mother Patsy and honorary mother Aunt Rosemary.

He held a special place in his heart for his Apotex family. He would always say, “it isn’t work if you love what you do!” He displayed such pride and dedication to the work he knew would impact many. We know his mentors at Apotex encouraged him to work hard, which accentuated who he was and the man he became. His work ethic was an inspiration to all, and we’re confident that the legacy he left with the company will be revered.
His passion for life and positive energy was shared with whoever crossed his path. His love for sports growing up lead him to coaching all three of his kids in soccer, where he left an everlasting impact on not just his own children but so many children in the community. He pushed everyone to strive for greatness and will be deeply missed by so many.
