Paul Martin Ludwig, 84, passed away suddenly Wednesday, December 22, 1993 at his home of a heart attack.

He was born July 29, 1909 in Salt Lake City, Utah, the son of Frederick William and Anna Freida Olga Ernst Ludwig. He was a lifelong resident of Salt Lake City. He worked at Portland Cement Company of Utah for 50 years, retiring in 1974.He married DeEsta Kirkham on May 28, 1948. She preceded him in death on January 2, 1986. A daughter, Joan, also preceded him in death.

He enjoyed being out-of-doors especially fishing. His grandchildren were a constant source of joy to him. He loved them dearly.

He was a member of the LDS Church.

Surviving are two sons, Jon and wife Diane Ludwig of Syracuse, Utah; Paul Bruce Ludwig of Brooklyn, New York; four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.

Dad never enjoyed funerals and we, his sons, can see no reason to subject him to one more. The family will meet fellow family members and friends at Larkin Mortuary, 260 East South Temple, on Monday, December 27, from 11 a.m.-12 noon. Following a family prayer by a nephew, Armand Tweedie, we will proceed to the Salt Lake City Cemetery, 4th Avenue & 'N' Street, where the grave will be dedicated by his longtime neighbor and friend, Arie Van Tielen.
