DONALD GARRY LUDWIG It is with sadness and heavy hearts we, his sisters Dianna Lynn Bailey and Connie Leona Nasif, announce the sudden passing of their dear brother, Donald Garry Ludwig, aged 67 years, on July 3, 2018, in Las Vegas, Nevada, on the second day of his much desired holiday and doing the most enjoyed hobby in his life - dancing. Donald was a wonderful brother and friend and enjoyed countless hours of working in the food industry in Winnipeg, Toronto, Vancouver and Gimli. At the time of his demise he was employed with Red River Community College, leaving a host of co-workers that will miss him dearly. Besides his sisters, Donald is survived by brother-in-law Monir Nasif; nephew Adam Nasif and family, Jenna, Sofia and Meena Nassif. Donald was predeceased by his parents Dorothy and Harry Ludwig; brothers-in-law Mel Janisch and Ron Bailey. Besides his cooking, he enjoyed shopping, having dinners and summer barbecues. Special thanks to Jenna and Patti for being there with Donald at the end of his life. Rest In Peace, Dear Brother. A private family setting with burial of ashes will take place at a later date. You will never be forgotten, brother Donald! Those who knew you - loved you!

  • Still thinking of you buddy, oh the laughs. - Posted by: Conrad Solypa (Friend) on: Jun 09, 2021

  • It has been over a year since his passing and I greatly miss my best friend. We were friends for 50 years Met in grade 10 were in the same classroom. I had talked with him at his house the second Friday in June. I was going on holiday to N.S. and he was going to Vegas the day after I got back. My condolences to his two sisters. - Posted by: Laurel Whitehead (Friend from Sisler High School) on: Oct 15, 2019

  • Today I was in my garden getting lettuce spinach and dill with the idea I was going to drop by the house on Garfield and leave a bag on the door. Trying to phone the number was out of service. Did a search on Google and this nightmare popped up. I became friends with Donnie so so many years ago through our love for music. Dropping by the house, the conversations, the laughs, the food. A tv in every room, the stock pile of supplies. The roosters or as Donnie would say the cocks. The conversations about growing up in the North End, the Sheraton, the diabetes. This was a total shock. He always talked so highly of Adam. I will miss you my friend. My deepest condolences to Connie, Dianna and families. - Posted by: Conrad Solypa (Friend) on: Jul 02, 2019

  • I am deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Donny. I have been an friend of Don's for 30 years. He was one of those rare individuals. I remember the days with Don at Winnipeg Supply on Portage Avenue and lunch times at Red River College making the best clubhouse sandwiches in the city. I had spent memorable times chatting on the phone and visits to his house on Garfield Street. I have lost a special friend. It was a pleasure to have been acquainted with Don and I will truly miss him. I give my condolences to the entire family. - Posted by: Adrian (Friend) on: Feb 22, 2019

  • Very sad to hear of Donnie's passing. It was always a great pleasure to see him in the office, and he will be missed by all. Kind, unique and great sense of humor, one of the best. - Posted by: Dr. Anthony Hlynka (friend) on: Oct 15, 2018

  • Dear Dianna and Family: I am so sorry to hear of Donald's passing. My thoughts and sympathies are with you and your family at this most difficult time. I will always remember Donald as a fun person to be around. He was full of laughter, and genuinely cared about others. I remember meeting him downtown many years ago on his way to the gym. Even though he seemed to be in a rush, he made time to stop and chat, and as usual, had a funny story to tell. All my best to the family, stay strong for one another, and always keep Donald in your hearts.

  • I first met Donnie through the college 10 years or so ago. I always called him my Liberace. He was the greatest friend anyone could have. He had a beautiful soul - I will miss you forever my Dancing Queen. - Posted by: Tina (Friend) on: Sep 01, 2018
