A Very Unusual Obituary

I have a “hobby” of collecting humorous obituaries and have published several of them here in past newsletters. However, the obituary of 71-year-old Rick Stein of Wilmington, Delaware, is a new one for me. It is different from the other obituaries in many ways.

I won’t spoil it here but I will say that if you want to read a most unusual obituary, go to http://bit.ly/2RA9ceu.

Disclaimer: It is long but is well worth the read.


That is a wild one. Sounds like a Hollywood script. But, as they say, truth is stranger than fiction.


He must have been a real talker to convince family of so many different stories. I wonder if he actually did any of those things.

Thank you for bringing that to our attention. The Art of the Obituary is rarely so interestingly practiced.

Love it! This kind of storytelling reminds me of the movie Big Fish.

What a clever way to name one’s survivors, and for them to enumerate on their loved one’s interests!
