On September 9th, a 53-year-old guy from Douglas, North Dakota, named Jim Adams died and he just might have left the best obituary EVER.
It reads, quote:
Jim, who got tired of reading obituaries noting others' courageous battles with this or that disease, wanted it known that he lost his battle.
It was primarily the result of being stubborn and not following doctor's orders, or maybe for just living life a little too hard for better than five decades.
He was sadly deprived of his final wish, which was to be run over by a beer truck on the way to the liquor store to buy booze for a date. True to his personal style, he spent his final hours joking with medical personnel, cussing and begging for narcotics.
Jim would like to thank all 'his ladies' for putting up with him the last 30 years.
In lieu of flowers, he asks that you make a sizeable purchase at your favorite watering hole, get rip roaring drunk and tell the stories he no longer can.
