We're jealous we didn't think of an obituary this succinct and clever. Back to the drawing board.
A Fargo man's obituary has made the rounds on the web for being pithy, yet totally accurate.
"Dough Died." The end. Obituaries are usually the place to recount a lifetime of achievements and then list the survivors, but this is a great way to go too. Doug Ledgler did indeed die at the age of 85 and according to Inforum, his daughter fulfilled his last request by putting down his preferred obituary.
"He said over and over, when I die I want my obituary to just say 'Doug Died,' " says Janet Stoll, Legler's daughter. "He was very lighthearted and had a great sense of humor," she says. "He was very quick-witted, and funny. He was one of a kind, he really was. Everyone loved him that met him."
Somewhere, Legler is happy to have left with a good joke.
