Obituary of Floyd Ludwick
It is with loving thoughts and fond memories that we announce the passing of Floyd at the age of 79, in Calgary, after a lengthy illness, borne with dignity and grace. He is survived by his cherished wife Rose and his devoted children Debbie (Bruce) Trevitt, Ken Ludwick, and Laurie (David) Thomson, as well as his beloved grandchildren Lauren and Mark Trevitt, Carson and Daniel Ludwick, and Thyra and Tessa Thomson. He is also survived by his brothers Nestor (Avril), Morris (Olga), Orest (Margaret), and Joe; by his sisters Carol, Lynn (Owen), Lil (Mike), and Ann; by his sisters-in-law Mary Leverington and Rose Orlecki; as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Frank and Irene Ludwick of Edmonton. Floyd began his career as a school teacher in Innisfree, Alberta. He then had a long and rewarding career at Shell Canada Resources. An avid golfer and a keen gardener, Floyd was happiest when he was outdoors enjoying nature. He was a kind and gentle soul, a loving and devoted husband and father, and always a generous-spirited friend. With the patient, loving support of his family and the valuable help of his caregivers at the Carewest Dr. Vernon Fanning Centre, Floyd showed all who knew him the true meaning of courage and love in facing the challenges of Parkinson’s disease. He will never be forgotten.
