Logan Nathaniel Lints, or Nate as he sometimes liked to be called, passed away on May 14, 2017. He was born on February 17, 2009 in Rome, NY. Logan was a second grade student at Westmoreland Elementary School and he loved his teachers and classmates. He was so excited to be moving up to third grade with his friends this fall. Like most 8 year old boys, Logan loved action heroes, playing outside with his friends and riding his bike and ATV. He really enjoyed playing games with Mom and Dad, especially when he won. Logan was especially close to his cousins, Sam and Isabella, with whom he spent a lot of time. He loved to talk about his recent Disney trip. His most recent adventure was a waterpark with Sam, where he tackled every slide no matter how high. There was no ride too scary, no slide too tall, and nothing was ever too fast; if there was an adrenaline rush to be had, Logan was there. He was also a gamer and his competitive streak really came out when playing against Dad. When he got off the bus, he would run all the way down the driveway with the biggest smile, yelling out "Hey Dad, can we play with...". And as soon as Mom opened the door, he'd say "Mom's home! Hey Mom, you wanna play with me?". He played hard, loved everyone without hesitation and lived his life with animation every day.
He was the beloved and cherished only child of Jason and Kristin Lints. He is also survived by his grandparents, Ruth Ayoub of Whitesboro and Benjamin and Rebecca Maracich of Belleview, FL; his Uncle Gregory Lints; Aunt Kelly Bonderrick; Uncle James Lints; Uncle Kevin and Aunt Kimberly Dietmeyer; Uncle Jason and Rachel Freiberger and cousins Isabella, Samuel, Madison, Avery, Kevin, Tyler, Mary and DJ, step-cousins Camryn and Ashlyn, as well as many close friends who loved Logan.
The family would like to thank all the first responders and medical staff at St. Elizabeth's Hospital for their extraordinary efforts and kindness. We'd also like to recognize the fellow citizens at the scene of the accident, who dropped everything to assist until Logan could be transported to the hospital. Every bit of compassion has been noted and is greatly appreciated.
A celebration of his life will be held at New Hartford First United Methodist Church, 105 Genesee St, on Friday, May 19th, at 5:00 p.m. There will not be any calling hours before or reception after the service.
