“Other 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?'” – Doug’s daughter.
Short and to the point. Exactly like Doug would have wanted.
The funniest, most succinct obituary we’ve ever seen is circling the Internet today, and evidently, Doug Legler himself came up with the idea.
Janet Stoll, Doug’s daughter, told WDay News: “He said over and over, when I die I want my obituary to just say ‘Doug Died.”Others would say ‘he was the president of this, a director of this’ and Dad would say, ‘What, couldn’t they hold down a job?’ ”
The cheeky 85-year-old had a few jobs himself, as a driver, a vending machine stockist, and a farm equipment painter. He was also a huge country music fan, and once came second in a talent contest busting out a few country tunes.
But we don’t want to to give away too much. Doug liked brevity.
“I’m sure he’s laughing up there now”, said Janet.
RIP Doug. Stay cool.
