Jack Bryan Ludwick (Jack Wright) passed away Wednesday, June 22, 2022, suddenly, and of natural causes, while restoring his home in Gladstone, Oregon. Jack was born December 28, 1964, in Eureka, California, to Vernon Ludwick and Sylvia Riewerts. He was a graduate of Eureka Senior High School, Class of 1983.

As a youth, Jack was a competitive bike racer, achieving the number one ranking in the Northern California region. He channeled this passion into customizing bikes for all the neighborhood residents, which ended up with a job at Auker’s Bows and Bikes in Old Town, Eureka. His passion soon turned from customizing bikes to customizing classic cars, wherein he made his profession, specializing in the restoration of early model fiberglass body Corvettes. He was the sole owner of Body Craft Body Shop. His work received numerous awards in car shows throughout the nation.

Jack was also a passionate music lover, playing electric bass in local Humboldt County bands and amassing an impressive collection of vinyl records, subsidized by his DJ business Sight & Sound, started while still in high school, which incorporated professional lighting effects along with hi-fi sound. Jack was an avid diver and enjoyed family trips in the pursuit of abalone, as well as, trips to our mountains and lakes, skiing and wakeboarding.

Jack was preceded in death by his father Vernon, a renowned classical guitarist and composer, and his step-father Robert Lee Wright, a beloved educator. He is survived by his mother Sylvia Riewerts, of Milwaukie, Oregon, and his brother James Wright of Eureka, California, amongst numerous other loved ones.
