Man’s Brilliant 2-Word Obituary Says Everything You Need to Know

This obituary is short and to the point.

Douglas Legler recently passed away and the North Dakota man’s obit didn’t mince words:

Legler’s daughter, Janet Stoll, said that’s just the way her dad wanted it:

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, who was 85 when he died, had a wonderful sense of humor, according to Stoll. “He was very quick-witted, and funny,” she said.

And now he’s got the obit to prove it for all of eternity.

Oh, in case you were wondering, this story clocked in at a very Doug Legler-disapproving 131 words.
