Wednesday's Child: Leonard Paul Ludwig

Leonard Paul Ludwig was the son of Rev. Leonhard and Helena Ludwig, born in 1925. Rev. Ludwig's family had formerly resided in Sandusky, Ohio. In 1919, Rev. Ludwig answered a call to serve as Pastor of a Lutheran Church in Portland, Oregon. On May 11, 1932, seven year old Leonard Paul Ludwig died in Portland, Oregon at Emanuel Hospital. His remains were brought back to Sandusky, Ohio, where he was buried at Oakland Cemetery. References to two passages from the Bible appear on the tombstone of Leonard Paul Ludwig: Job 1:21 and Mark 10:14. Though this little boy passed away over 80 years ago, his memory is still honored with flowers. Rest in peace little one. An obituary for Leonard Paul Ludwig appeared in the June 3, 1932 issue of the Sandusky Register.
