Duane A Ludwick

1965 - 2021



Duane A. Ludwick of Hermiston, Oregon was born on April 26, 1965 in Pendleton, Oregon. He passed away in Hermiston, Oregon on April 10, 2021 at the age of 55, related to severe COPD.  

Duane loved being outdoors, in his younger years he was riding dirt bikes, skateboarding, or playing softball.  Duane worked many years primarily as a Truck Driver. When he wasn’t working he spent time with his family and loved to go fishing and out on the boat. Duane has always loved the water and the ocean. He’s often wished that he could live on a houseboat. Duane and the boys moved to Florida for a few years and he was able to complete his goal of Marine Mechanic. While he really grew to love the Florida life, Duane and the boys later moved back to Hermiston.
Duane has always had a quick wit and great sense of humor. He loved to tease and joke, had a huge heart for others and loved all of his family. He will be greatly missed.

Duane is preceded in death by his grandparents, and leaves behind 2 sons, a daughter, one grandson, his parents, sisters, and his beloved dog “Sammy”. 
We appreciate your love and support. 

A family celebration of life will be held at a later time.

I remember Duane when we were just kids.. My mom baby sat Duane once in awhile and it was so cool for several reasons... I loved having someone close to my age to play with.. Plus being the  "baby" of 4 girls it was a novelty to have a BOY around.. In school I remember he was one of the "Nice" boys that liked to smile and didn't pick fights lol... He was a great guy!!
