So sad to hear of Rick's passing. He was a good friend and will be missed. Happily we got to visit after the 50th Reunion.

So sorry to hear about Rick Ludlow.  On one of our trips to the Oregon coast Ginny, Susie Towle and I stopped by to see Rick.  It was so nice to visit our PHS friend.  My condolences to his family.

Tyler called me and gave the sad news. Rick and I were close at Piedmont. We both shared our talents with our guitar playing. We were in talent shows and, at weekend dances.  We were both in the Rigma boys club. We didn't stay in touch after high school but, in the last few years communicated through Facebook . Great times and memories. My sadness is extended to his wife Margaret and, others in Ricks family.

He was born on September 29, 1946 in Oakland and grew up in Piedmont with his parents Lloyd and Elna Ludlow.. Rick dedicatd his professioal life to sales and marketing primarily in the magazine industry, most notably TV Guide Magazine, Northwest News, and 48 states. Since boyhood, had an avid interest in model railroads beginning with the HO gauge, but took special interest in ON30 in his later years. Rick is survived by his wife Margaret, daughter Tracy, and twin sons Andrew and Kevin, and 10 grandchildren. No service will be held. Donations in his name can be made to the Medford Railroad Park.

Rick was a great guy, and will be missed by many.  Played basketball with him in grammar school at Havens after school on the playground.  He was kind and caring, and I'm glad that I got to catch up with him at one of the reunions.  My thoughts are with his family at this time.

Rick was, in my estimation, a perfect gentleman.  Most of my memories of Rick are from our high school days, and they are very clear.  I would often see him with other mutual friends, sometimes playing music with them.  He comes to mind frequently, as do many of them,and always with a very pleasant, very comfortable feeling.  It was great to know he was still being the same old great guy-until I got the bad news of his passing. I'm glad to hear he spent much of his later life in Oregon-seems a good spot for someome so nice.  My sincere condolences and very best wishes to his family,and to our many mutual friends.  He'll remain in our hearts.

I was saddened to hear about the passing of Rick Ludlow. Rick and I were introduced to each other in the 8th grade, by our mothers, Elna and Lillian, both members of the East Bay Republican Womens' Committee. 

Rick had a passion for model car building in his pre-model railroad days. Because my dad was in the auto parts business, I had an endless supply of "Bondo," and we spent hours in his basement customizing model cars, reshaping them into our vision of "bitchin'" hot rods. I had little patience for the drying process of Bondo and paint, but Rick could wait for days to create the perfect rendition of his vision.

Rick always exhibited that patience throughout the time that I saw him, which extended beyond high school. Eventually, we lost contact with one another, but it was fun to learn that he continued his model building from his passion for model railroading.

Rick was a good and kind person and will be missed.
