This man's to-the-point obituary is going viral


A NEWSPAPER IN North Dakota, The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead has printed the simplest obituary you’re likely to see in a long time. Also, one of the best.

We present to you, to obituary of Douglas Legler.

But hey, don’t stress. It’s what he wanted.

His daughter Janet Stoll told the paper:

He said over and over, when I die I want my obituary to just say ‘Doug Died,’. [Other people's obituaries] would say ‘he was the president of this, a director of this’ and Dad would say, ‘What, couldn’t they hold down a job?’

Legler died on June 27, aged 85.
