Obituary for Ludwig B. Zajc

February 1, 1943 - March 17, 2021
Brunswick, Ohio | Age 78


Ludwig B. Zajc, age 78. Beloved husband of Joyce C. Zajc (nee. Stoutenburgh). Proud father of Luddie (Tawny) Zajc and David (Melissa) Zajc. Caring grandfather of Drake, Delaney, and Carson. Dear brother of Charlene (Richard) Kellner and the late Mary Elizabeth Zajc. Loved by many more nieces and nephews, in-laws, and extended family members. Passed away March 17, 2021.

Lud was a devoted husband for 55 years, marrying his 7th grade sweetheart. He was also committed to his sons, spending many years coaching North Royalton baseball and soccer teams, as well as serving as President of Soccer Club. He started his career as a Machinist at MTD's Shiloh Plant in 1965, where he remained until retirement.

Those talents spilled over into the stock car racing world. He was a part of several race teams, both as an owner and crew chief. He was a top-notch mechanic recognized many times as "Mechanic of the Year". Lud actively served on the North Royalton Police Reserves for 51 years. He was proud to give back to his hometown.

One of his biggest joys was his grandchildren. He was a proud grandfather and will be deeply missed. We lost Lud to a rare complication that resulted from Multiple Myeloma of which he had defeated 10 years earlier. He fought like no other for the ones he loved!
