Obituary

John Ludwig, 98, of Brookville, PA died Monday, September 30, 2019. John was born April 24, 1921 in Greensburg. He was the son of the late Samuel and Katherine (Bachert) Ludwig. He was married to Susan Ruth (Evans) Ludwig on August 9, 1947. He graduated high school and went to work at Westinghouse. He enlisted in the Marines on July 6, 1942 and served in the Pacific on Saipan and Okinawa. He was discharged January 23, 1946 and returned to the United States. He went to work at Limegrover’s auto dealership in Turtle Creek, PA. He later moved to Brookville to open his own dealership, Ludwig Sales and Service and sold Pontiacs, Oldsmobiles, and Cadillacs. He was a member of the Lions Club, Jefferson County Shriners, the Masonic Order, and was proud of his service in the United States Marines as a World War II Veteran. He enjoyed driving his convertible in the Laurel Festival parade or on back-country roads. He loved family gatherings and vacations at Emerald Isle, NC. He was always involved in community service through the Lions Club during his 50 years of service, as well as the Shriners Organization and his Masonic functions. John was a very social person and preferred to be on his porch where he could visit with neighbors. He went to coffee everyday thanks to his caregivers. He enjoyed going to have coffee everyday with his friends and caregivers. He visited with the mailman daily and always had a jigsaw puzzle in progress. He enjoyed car shows, military history, and collecting General Motors memorabilia. He lived for his weekly chocolate milkshake or a piece of chocolate his caregivers shared with him. Most of all, he enjoyed feeding all the wild critters in his backyard. Every morning, weather permitting, he hung an American flag and a Marine flag on his porch. He was a kind, honest, generous, hardworking father, who was loved by many and will be greatly missed by all. He is survived by one daughter; Susan K. Sloan and her husband Mark; two grandchildren; Jonathan M. Sloan, Kelly S. Nord; and three great grandchildren; Madison, Daniel, and Katherine Nord. He is preceded in death by his wife Susan (Evans) Ludwig and two sons, John E. Ludwig and Scott E. Ludwig; two brothers; Alfred S. Ludwig, Paul V. Ludwig; and two sisters; Beatrice M. Ludwig and Katherine A. Wian. Family and friends will be received from 4 - 8pm on Monday, October 7, 2019 at the McKinney – d’Argy Funeral Home of Brookville.
