Newspaper Prints Two-Word Obituary For Dad


A North Dakota man’s self-penned, two-word obituary has been published in his local newspaper.Douglas Legler’s death notice in the Forum of Fargo-Moorhead read simply: “Doug died.”The masterpiece of brevity featured a photo of the 85-year-old jokester having the last laugh.Janet Stoll, Mr Ledger’s daughter, told the newspaper: “He said over and over, when I die I want my obituary to just say ‘Doug Died.'”She added: “He was very lighthearted and had a great sense of humour.”Ms Stoll filled in some of the blanks left by her father’s pithy sign-off.Mr Legler worked as a lorry driver, vending machine repairman and painter of farm equipment.In his spare time he liked to sing country music and occasionally visit the casino.His sense of humour masked past heartbreak – he lost his partner unexpectedly last autumn and his wife, Ms Stoll’s mother, died 17 years ago.Mr Legler’s funeral was held on Thursday.
