Obituary of Tucker Ludwig

Tucker Scott Ludwig, age 22, died peacefully on April 7, 2022 in the arms of his parents.

He is survived by his parents Susan and Roger Ludwig, Black Rock, CT, his aunts and uncles Jim Smith and his wife Lise of Charlotte, NC, Elizabeth Deal of Charleston, SC, Tony Ludwig and his wife Susan of Mahwah, NJ, Kate Ludwig and her husband Scott of Bozeman, MT, Clint Ludwig and his wife Lori of Yarmouth Port, MA, cousins Aiden, Anna, Carly, Scott, Charlie, Jamie and Kristen.

Tucker was a sweet and inquisitive boy. He will be remembered for his kindness and generosity. Tucker enjoyed skiing, fishing and hiking. His passion was reselling vintage shoes and clothing. He loved body surfing at Watch Hill and being with family at their summer home in Barnstable.

Through his grace and strength Tucker’s legacy will be felt by many. His medical case will allow for further study of Brugada Syndrome, a congenital heart defect. His genetic markers will be helpful to his cousins and as an organ donor he has saved lives. His family is grateful for the compassionate care Tucker received at Yale New Haven Hospital and by New England Donor Services.

Tucker was at his best when giving to others. He was proud to lend his time to beach clean ups, tagging horseshoe crabs, delivering holiday food bins to those in need and helping at risk kids with afterschool sports and homework. His friends remember Tucker as a genuine and passionate guy who had a very special way of connecting many people.  They will carry his memory and inspiration with them. Tucker was proud to be part of the brotherhood at Camp Belknap, Fairfield Prep and Delta Tau Delta fraternity at the University of Alabama.

Services will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church in Southport, CT on Friday May 13 at 4pm.
