This North Dakota man’s two-word obituary is excellent

North Dakota newspaper The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead ran the following obituary Wednesday for local resident Douglas Legler.

“Doug died”

That’s it.

Forum arts columnist Kris Kerzman reported that Legler insisted for years that his death notice be short and to-the-point.

“He said over and over, when I die I want my obituary to just say ‘Doug Died,'” says Janet Stoll, Legler’s daughter. “(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?'”

Out of respect for Mr. Legler’s wishes, what more is there to say about his obituary other than “The End.”
