Irishman Dies from Stubbornness, Whiskey

Continuing along with a series of humorous obituaries, here is a recent one for Chris Connors from Quincy, Massachusetts. Here are a few excerpts:

He lived 1000 years in the 67 calendar years we had with him because he attacked life; he grabbed it by the lapels, kissed it, and swung it back onto the dance floor.

At the age of 26 he planned to circumnavigate the world – instead, he ended up spending 40 hours on a life raft off the coast of Panama.

Most people thought he was crazy for … dressing up as a priest and then proceeding to get into a fight at a Jewish deli.

His regrets were few, but include eating a rotisserie hot dog from an unmemorable convenience store in the summer of 1986.

The ending might be the best line of all. I won’t reveal it here but you can read the obituary in its entirety at


Now that was a man and that was an OBIT!


So fill to him the parting glass, good night and joy be with you all.


” he lived not so wisely but so well..” life as it should be tasted!


“Life is too important to be taken seriously.” [Paraphrase of a similar quote from a failed Oscar Wilde play.]



Too late to read the obit. I found the following when I clicked on the link.
