“Jake” Ludwig, 80, of Northampton died Tuesday, January 5, 2021 peacefully in his home. He was born in Northampton to the late Paul and Helen Ludwig. He was married to Maryann (Kuyan) for 46 years until her death in December of 2015. “Jake” served in the Navy aboard the USS Merrick in the early 1960’s, he attended the US Naval Officer Candidate School and received the Vietnam Service Campaign Medal, the National Defense Service Medal and the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal. He graduated from Colorado State University where he often told stories about the mountains and the “Wild West” as well as the long drive to and from home back when highways were not the way they are today. Jake worked many years (40) as an Insurance Claims adjuster retiring from State Auto Insurance at age 60 after realizing he would need to deal with computers. Jake had a great sense of humor and was truly a self-made man, his infectious laugh, his animated jokes and stories along with his knack for being the life of the party generated a long list of lifelong friends and family. He loved his hockey and was a season ticket holder since the Phantoms came to town – this got him through the long winter months. He loved his hunting and fishing, but more importantly the camaraderie that came along with these trips. His Sunday drives often took him to new restaurants where he would always meet new friends, his meal was once paid for by a couple who left before he could thank them, he went back the next 3 weeks looking for them to repay for their favor – that was him. Jake was a member of the Bath Legion, Tri-Boro Sportsmans Club and Ontelaunee Rod and Gun Club for many years – he enjoyed his daily walks at Tri-Boro (with his Weimaraner Soho) and seeing his many friends there. Survivors, sister-in-law Sandy Kuyan and her partner Freeman and numerous cousins in the Ludwig, Bonshak and Fritchey families. Services: 10:30 AM, Tuesday January 19, at the Trexler Funeral Home with calling hour from 9:30-10:30 with services immediately following. Memorial contributions can be made to the American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association or the charity of your choice care of the Trexler Funeral Home.
