Ludwig graduated from MSOE with a degree in metallurgy and worked as a mechanical engineer with Lindberg Heavy Duty in Watertown for many years until his retirement. He also served in the US Navy.

His love for reading made him knowledgeable in just about any subject. He was intelligent and full of facts. He also loved gardening, cooking, and feeding the birds (especially his purple martins).
