He may have died, but his obituary killed.

Walter George Buehl Jr., 80, of Delaware, passed away last weekend, but he lives on with this instantly legendary obit he wrote, which features these classic lines:

His spirit was released from his worn-out shell of a body and is now exploring the universe.”

He was surrounded by his loving wife of 57 years, Helene Sellers Bruhl, who will now be able to purchase the mink coat which he had always refused her because he believed only minks should wear mink.”

There will be no viewing since his wife refuses to honor his request to have him standing in the corner of the room with a glass of Jack Daniels in his hand so he would appear natural to visitors.

Buehl's obit has gone viral after his son posted it on Reddit, which may be the ultimate tribute in 21st century America.
