Marc Laird Ludwig
November 20, 1953 - September 26, 2017
Marc Ludwig was a pure soul who was lost far too soon. He was born in Lackawanna, New York on November 20, 1953. He was raised in South Bend, Indiana. He moved to Bloomington for college and earned a BS in Psychology from Indiana University. He owned and operated Ludwig Wallcovering for over 30 years.
He was a hardworking man who enjoyed traveling, being outdoors, playing soccer, supporting IU soccer, and loved music, including attending countless concerts with his beloved wife, Margi.
He was a truly genuine individual and his presence alone willed others to adopt some of his qualities of patience, acceptance, grace, love, laughter, and joy. He was intelligent and had a sense of humor that was always appreciated. He never knew a stranger and never forgot a name. He was willing to open his door and heart, and to lend a hand to anyone in need and never gave up on or turned his back to anyone. He took his time in life and seemed to appreciate every minute of every day.
He loved his family and enjoyed spending time with them on all occasions from cookouts, to holiday gatherings and celebrations, Colts Sunday, and playing with his grandchildren. He had friends and support from all walks of life and had many “extended families” that were just as much a part of his life as any. As one of his doctors recently put it, “If you had the opportunity to meet Marc, you were a better person for having known him.”
Marc was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Helen Ludwig. He is survived by his loving wife of 20 years and lifetime soulmate, Margi Ludwig; children, Kate (Sam) Arthur, Ginny (Josh) Smith, Hannah (John) Boggs, and John (Serena Lowenthal) McKinney; and 4 beloved grandchildren, Lucas, Ella, Scarlett, and Coval; and multiple brothers and sisters in-law.
What a beautifully written eulogy, that captures Marc perfectly. Looking forward to celebrating Marc's life tonight. <3
Oh Margi our hearts goes out to you. You are in our thoughts and I know words cannot express how we know you must feel. With love from Alan, Sharlee & Ann
Oh, Marco... I am still in shock, this is completely devastating and unfair. We all love you and will miss you so so so much! You were one of the good ones, man.
