Robert Ludlow (bob)

October 8, 1946 - August 11, 2013


It is with great sadness, and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Bob Ludlow, on August 11, 2013 at his home in Bonnington, BC.
Bob was born and raised in Nelson, BC to Jack and Betty Ludlow, the oldest to four siblings. Bob had lots of fond memories growing up in Nelson. He worked at Safeway during his school days, and had many funny, tales to tell of his time there, as well as his time spent on the Coldwell farm in Strathmore, Alberta. After graduation Bob worked as a Surveyor, and then as a Loans Officer, at a Bank in Cranbrook. During the mid 70’s Bob traveled extensively throughout Europe and the Caribbean, with loads of happy memories and interesting stories.
Bob was hired at Celgar Pulp and Paper in 1978, and met Sandra Johnson that same year. They married in 1981. By 1984 they had built their second and final home in Bonnington, BC, where Bob spent countless hours doing his biggest passion: gardening, Bob had many interests, and knew a little and a lot about everything. Some of his passions included, The Stock Market, reading, (when he wasn’t gardening) Qi Gong, and socializing, his biggest love was his grandchildren, Jade and Chase. Bob was predeceased by his father Jack, his mother Betty, and his brother Brian. He will be sadly missed by his wife Sandra, his daughters Kelli (Ron) Graham, Shannon (Roger) May, grandchildren Jade and Chase May, sisters Jacquie (Murray) Bruckshaw, Betty Jean ( Ron) Hay, Kathy (Dale) Gage, and many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews, as well as his beloved dog Sweetie.
We Love You Papa, Rest In Peace

Cousin Bob as I knew him was one of a kind, he was always such a character and made me laugh. He spent a lot of time at the family farm while growing up. He worked in Strathmore and stayed with us one year, that year he lent us his little Toyota to drive, we sure had a lot of fun in it along with all our friends, it was always packed to the rafters with kids. He always made a point of coming to see mom and dad and the rest of us each and every year which meant so much to all of us. You will be dearly missed , I love you Bob.
