Lud was part of the old school mates educated at the Yorkrun separate school buildings in Georges Township in the 1940’s and 1950’s. Being the third son, he and his two older brothers had many adventurous and mischievous activities in their younger years. Many long hours were spent working on the farm. Lud left the farm in the 1960’s to work in the Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia areas. Working included building many highways, bridges and building in those areas. He became a master in supervising others in the structural bridge industry. Lud was a member of local unions including the Rudman Local Union 201 in 1969 and the International Association of Bridge, Structure, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Works, Local 5 of Washington D.C.
While in the D.C. area, Lud met and married Linda Faye Cook, having one son. Stephen. The family spent many hours fishing, camping and traveling along the Atlantic coast and Mid-Atlantic Bay and Rivers. Upon returning to the farm, Lud built a home for his family. He continued to work for the unions in West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan and Tennessee.
His favorite hobbies included working in his vegetable gardens and caring for his homestead. He was very proud of the vegetables and fruit his labor produced. Lud was a family man helping his elderly father and mother, brothers and sisters with farming, gardening and building. Another favorite hobby was making wood carvings and Christmas wreaths and decorations.
Lud belonged to Saint George Serbian Church, Carmichaels. He participated in the church choir and assisted with many church activities with members and Father’s Adams, Father Rodney and Father Sasa Nedic .
His passing has left another void in the Miscovich family tree and will be greatly missed, but he is now in heaven alongside his loved ones. Lud was a kind soul and had a calming affect making laughter with his funny and cool wit.
