Family discover wonderful obituary grandfather wrote for himself before he died

What a guy.

WALTER GEORGE BRUHL Jr died on Sunday. Shortly after his death, his family discovered an obituary he had written for himself, which is quite frankly amazing.

His grandson uploaded the passage to Reddit.

Speaking to Buzzfeed, Bruhl’s grandson Sam said he just had to post it.

I knew immediately that it needed to be shared. People need those little bits of inspiration each day, and I know my PopPop would love to be that for people.

Redditors were touched by the letter, with many pledging good deeds as he asked.


He seems like an awesome guy. I’m going to pay the tab of the car behind me in whatever drive through I find myself in, in honor of your grandfather. Whatever part of the universe he’s exploring at that time, I hope he’ll sense the sentiment on his behalf.


Thanks for posting this. This is for Walt.
