Mr. Robert Eugene “Butch” Ludvigsen, age 74, of Fairburn, Georgia passed away at 4:00pm on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 following an illness. Born on June 25, 1946 a son of the late Louis Peter and Dorothy Aldrich Ludvigsen.
Butch spent 50 years working as a plumber. It was 1967 that his life would forever change, when he met for the first time Sharon Murrow. It was clearly love at first sight because it was December 14, 1968, they exchanged vows before family and friends, committing themselves to one another for the last 52 years. During their 52-year marriage Butch and Sharon were truly blessed to have had 3 beautiful daughters who were equally as blessed to have been born to 2 of the most amazing parents. Being an avid outdoorsman when Butch wasn’t working, he was known to be exploring deep into the woods hunting, or on the water fishing, giving him ample opportunity to aggravate his amazing son-in-law’s who along with his daughters brought him the joy and love every grandfather dreams of. They gave Butch and Sharon 12 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren who were all the apple in his eye. Following Butch’s full time plumbing career, he spent countless hours in his workshop tinkering around, if not found there you could always count on him to be near the TV with the remote in his hand.
Left to cherish Butch’s memory are his amazing, loving and devoted wife of 52 years, 1 month and 12 days, Sharon Ludvigsen of the home; 3 beautiful daughters and their husbands, Kim and Jeff Ogles, Teresa and Darrell Dotson, Michelle and Brandon Jones; grandchildren, Misty, Chad, Amber, Cory, Dylan, Trey, Devin, Clayton, Morgan, Dawson, Ryan, Gunner, Eric and Tiffany; great-grandchildren, Kaden, Adrianna, Baylee, Skylar, Rilynne, Karaleigh, Hadley, Wyatt and Vivian. Also, to cherish his loving memory are his 3 sisters, Ethel Hardin, Vada Bettis and Mary Sheldon as well as his brother, Ronnie Ludvigsen.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by brother, Pete Ludvigsen and sister, Christine Johnson.
