Obituary for Donald Eugene Ludeman

Donald Eugene Ludeman, age 86, of Lapeer passed away on March 8, 2016. He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 63 years, Edith Louise Ludeman nee. Holt. Donald is survived by his children; Donna (Michael) McGrane, Daniel (Elaine) Ludeman, David Ludeman, Debra Schank, Donald (Denise) Ludeman Jr., and Dennis (Laurie) Ludeman; Grandchildren, Jennifer, Erin, Thomas, Christina, Bethanie, Ryan, Kellie and Alex; Great-grandchildren, Leah, Blake, Elijah, Aubrey, Jeremiah, Peyton and Tamber; his brother John (Al) and his sister Carol; also, several nieces and nephews. In addition to his wife, Edith, Donald was preceded in death by his parents, Hugo and Helen Ludeman, and his siblings, Robert, Charles, Oscar, William and Dorothy.

Donald loyally served his country in the United States Army, 101st Airborne Division. He enjoyed watching old movies on tv as well as his favorite sports including football. There were several traveling trips out west with time spent being entertained at the casinos. Donald’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of his life. He would take them for walks and would make special trips to the candy store where each child was allowed to pick out 3 of their favorite treats. Donald reveled in the amusement of watching them carefully and methodically select their bounty. He will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved him.

Friends may visit with the family on Thursday, March 10th from 10:00am until 12:30pm at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home Capstick Chapel in Lapeer.
