— A 5-year-old boy sworn in as an honorary Harrah police officer in November died this week after a lifelong battle with complications from premature birth.

Logan Luka died Monday in the arms of his mother and father and surrounded by friends and family, a Harrah police spokesman said.

“Officer Logan Luka did not lose this battle or any other,” officer Phil Stewart said. “He persevered and overcame for five unexpected years and ended this chapter of his life on his own terms.”

Logan and his little brother, Mason Luka, 2, were sworn in as honorary Harrah officers Nov. 17, World Prematurity Day.

Both were born prematurely, but Logan's early birth was particularly complicated. He was born at 25 weeks and had many health problems stemming from his early birth, including cerebral palsy.

Stewart has known the Luka brothers since they were born, and both always looked up to police officers. Their commissioning ceremony in November came complete with badges and specially tailored uniforms.

A medical fund for Logan has now been turned into the Logan Luka Memorial Fund. Donations can be made at the Harrah BancFirst.

Funeral services for Logan will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at Ford Funeral Home, 305 S Sooner Road, Midwest City. Graveside services will be held afterward at the Dale Cemetery. has disabled the comments for this article.
