Edward Logan Case, Jr. was born at Klamath Agency Oct. 6, 1943. He was the great-grandson of Klamath Chief Lalo and son of Edward and Cassie Case. He and his wife, Betty, were married for 50 years. He attended Chiloquin High School and Oregon Institute of Technology, where he played a year of football and basketball for the Owls. He toured Asia on a traveling basketball team in his early years and is well known throughout Indian Country for playing in hundreds of tournaments for several years for the Sprague River Ducks. His greatest love was his family, and he loved watching all the games his kids and grandkids played in, whether it was basketball, football, baseball, volleyball, softball or track. He raised all of his children with sports in their blood. He also was an avid hunter and loved getting his wood in early. He worked in sawmills for 40 plus years, starting in a Chiloquin mill on the green chain, then going to Thomas Lumber/Jeld-Wen Company in Klamath Falls, where he retired. He then went on to work at Kla-Mo-Ya Casino for eight years. One of his other joys in life was giving the referees of Klamath County help during the many games he attended. They are now free to make all the bad calls they want. He leaves behind his children and grandchildren, Lori and Rob Mitchell and their children, Arthur, Cyrille and Rodney, Ed and Torina Case and their children, Liston and Jen, Fallon and Kevin and Lavina Rose, Faryn and Roman Case, Charlie and Betty Case and their children, Dani, Ty and Antone, and Tori Scott and his children, Haley, Wesley, Tohtehl and Nekichwey; sisters, John and Jackie Galbreath, Cassie and John Law, Delores Case, and Jessie and Gregory Aguilar; sisters-in-law, Rose Marie Duran and Billy and Glen FooSum; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and family; and an extremely large basketball family across Indian Country, as well as all the kids he coached over the years. He was preceded in death by parents, Ed and Cassie Case; aunt/mother, Lavina Smith; grandma and grandpa, Rentz and Grandson Garrick "GDubs" Scott; and sister, Phyllis Samson.
