      John Duer Ludlow
      March 8, 1924 - August 31, 2019

      John Ludlow, of Curtis, died at home on Saturday August 31, 2019 after a short illness. John was born on March 8, 1924 in Manistique, Michigan, son of the late Archie Ludlow and Helen (nee Sherman) Ludlow.?

      John moved to Newberry at age six where he became an outstanding student and athlete. Graduating from Newberry High School in 1942, he received an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Michigan but chose instead to attend West Point. A multi-sport athlete, he played tailback on the undefeated 1944 and 1945 national championship teams with Heisman Trophy winning teammates Doc Blanchard and Glen Davis. He graduated in 1945 and was assigned to the Army Air Corps which subsequently became the US Air Force. He served with the allied occupation army in Germany and then as a pilot in the Strategic Air Command where he quickly rose to the highest aviation skill level of Command Pilot while flying many different airplanes. He was a veteran of the Korean conflict where he flew B29?s earning two bronze service stars. He later flew B47?s and helped to pioneer air-to-air refueling. Leaving the Strategic Air Command, he became the head of physical education at the newly constructed Air Force Academy from 1957-1961. He was then assigned as a student at the University of Chicago where he earned a Master of Business Administration degree. He used this training in various assignments, including program director for the B1 bomber. He retired from the Air Force at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in 1967 and moved to the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor campus where he received a PhD in business management and marketing in 1970. Joining the business department of Northern Michigan University, he taught from 1972-1995. He served as an assistant football coach during his tenure there which included the 1975 national championship team. Among many honors he was inducted into the U.P. Sports Hall of Fame in 1996 and into the inaugural class of the Newberry High School Athletic Hall of Fame in 2013.?

      In addition to his parents, John is preceded in death by his sister Helen Lou Pardee, brothers Sherman Ludlow and William Purmort, and his wife, Patricia Barrett Ludlow.?

      Survivors include his children Lark, John, and Barrett Ludlow and their children and grandchildren. While living an amazing life, Ludlow never thought of himself as someone special. Along with his many achievements he will be remembered for a wonderful sense of humor which endeared him to his friends, family, and colleagues.?

      John will be interred at the West Point Military Academy. Memorials may be directed to the Tahquamenon Education Foundation, P.O. Box 482, Newberry, Michigan 49868 in his memory.?
