The Humorous Obituary of Terry Ward

I admire this man’s lifestyle. Terry Ward of DeMotte, Indiana, passed away January 23, 2018. I don’t know who wrote his obituary but, whoever it was, that person has a sense of humor. Amongst other things, the obituary states:

“Terry Wayne Ward, age 71, of DeMotte, IN, escaped this mortal realm on Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018, leaving behind 32 jars of Miracle Whip, 17 boxes of Hamburger Helper and multitudes of other random items that would prove helpful in the event of a zombie apocalypse.”

“Terry died knowing that The Blues Brothers was the best movie ever, (young) Clint Eastwood was the baddest-ass man on the planet, and hot sauce can be added to absolutely any food.”

There’s more… a lot more. You can read Terry Ward’s obituary in the Geisen Funeral Home’s web site at:

My thanks to newsletter reader Phil Roberts for telling me about this obituary.


Loved this obituary. Terry Ward was obviously an exceptional man. He was his own person. Since I have “Wards” in my family, we could be distant relatives way back somewhere. And they were avid hunters & fishermen. I lost my husband of 57 yrs.(the love of my life) a year ago last Dec. My condolences to Mr. Ward’s family.


What a wonderful tribute! No doubt Terry was much loved.


He sounds like a man I would have loved to meet. My condolences to his family and friends who no doubt will miss this truly unique man. I’ll raise a glass tonight in his honour.


Obviously, he was much loved and appreciated for his life and how he lived it.

Oddly enough, the first thought that came to mind other than the humor was the fact that it was such a breath of fresh air to read that obit. After reading dozens of basic obits, that one was really awesome. I wonder if he wrote it or if someone else did? Either way, it was fantastic.
