Love This Guy's Self-Penned Obituary!

Action News

March 11, 2014 - Walter George Bruhl, Jr., of Newark, Delaware, died Sunday at the age of 80. His self-penned obituary, posted online by his grandson, is garnering worldwide attention.

It is funny and inspirational and it was written by Walter Bruhl, Jr. himself. It's gone viral since his grandson Sam posted it online.

Bruhl wrote for himself, - "his loving wife, Helene Sellers Bruhl, will now be able to purchase the mink coat which he had always refused her...," and, "Walt was preceded in death by his tonsils and adenoids in 1935, and his prostate on March 27, 2000."

"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..." and, "Instead of flowers, Walt would hope that you will do an unexpected and unsolicited act of kindness for some poor unfortunate soul in his name."

This obit has not only made people laugh, it's inspired a lot of people to, in fact, do something nice. So Walter Bruhl, Jr., with the help of his grandson, Sam, can proudly state, "Mission Accomplished."

Cannot believe the wife wouldn't honor his last request to stand him in the corner with his JD!

Re: Love This Guy's Self-Penned Obituary!

If this guy's last name was Bruhl, then why does his son looks like a McPoyle?

Family can be so cold and mean! I don't know why they tell innocent children shit like that!
