web_Waidmann_LudwigLudwig Waidmann, 90, of Amherstburg, passed away peacefully on Jan. 20, 2016 while spending time with his family in North Port, Florida. He was the beloved husband of Mary (Ofner) Grundner-Waidmann since 1997, and the late Maria (Bachmann) Waidmann from 1950 until her death in 1995, after a courageous battle with cancer. Born Nov. 27, 1925 in Yugoslavia, Ludwig was the son of Georg and Theresa (Sutter) Waidmann, as well as the brother of predeceased Nicholas of Austria. Ludwig finally settled in Canada after living in Yugoslavia, Austria and Australia. He was a machine repairman at Chrysler and always loved repairing various items around the house. In fact, even late in life, until the day he passed away, he always took his tools wherever he went. Ludwig was always a farmer at heart, operating a farm for 21 years in Anderdon Township, and had a true love of the land, its crops and livestock. His friendly and fun-loving personality embraced any festivity, especially Oktoberfest. Wintering in Florida for the past 20 years became a passion, but most of all he loved his family, especially his two precious grandsons. Ludwig leaves behind his wife Mary, his daughter Helga Bailey (Robert) and two grandsons Adam and Bryan (Nicole Freeman) Bailey. He also had three stepchildren Albert (Susan) Grundner, Linda (Larry) Snively, and Ron (Patty) Grundner; as well as 7 step-grandchildren and 10 step-great-grandchildren. He will be dearly missed. For those who desire, memorial contributions in memory of Ludwig can be made to the Windsor Essex County Cancer Centre Foundation at www.windsorcancerfoundation.org. Cremation has taken place with memorial visitation on Wednesday, February 10, 2016 from 2-5 and 7-9 p.m. at Families First, 585 Sandwich Street South, Amherstburg (519-969-5841).
