Aaron Purmort passed away on November 25th, 2014, at the age of 35 from a brain tumour, although the obituary he wrote for himself tells a slightly different story.
Aaron’s personality and love for comic books shone through his harrowing tail of a superhero who could not defeat the nefarious criminal that has plagued society for far too long—cancer.
After twenty-five years, he suddenly realized that running away from burning buildings made more sense than running toward them. He was never one for sentiment or religiosity, but he wanted you to know that if he owes you a beer, and if you can find him in Heaven, he will gladly allow you to buy him another.
He can likely be found forwarding tasteless internet jokes (check your spam folder, but don’t open these at work).
His funny obituary will have you smiling the whole way through and wishing that you had been fortunate enough to meet him.We normally think of obituaries—the mini-biographies of deceased people’s lives that you read at the back of newspapers—as being dreary and solemn.(Frankly, it’s a bit of a boring read when you didn’t know the person.) But an obituary doesn’t have to be dull and unmemorable. Emily Philips, a retired teacher, died on March 25, 2015 in Florida.Ziegler’s obituary also mentions his love for the “morons and mental patients” that he served with as a fireman, sending tasteless internet jokes, potted meat and his “alcoholic dog Judge”.While this obituary is full of humour, Ziegler’s daughter shared with the Times-Picayune the meaning behind the hilarious obituary saying that her father would always email funny obituaries he found online so that they could have a laugh.“Age 35, died peacefully at home on November 25 after complications from a radioactive spider bite that led to years of crime-fighting and a years long battle with a nefarious criminal named Cancer, who has plagued our society for far too long.His family knew him only as a kind and mild-mannered Art Director, a designer of websites and t-shirts and concert posters who always had the right cardigan and the right thing to say (even if it was wildly inappropriate).So if you’re looking for 2 extremely large TV’s from the 90s, a large ceramic stork (we think) umbrella/cane stand, a toaster oven (slightly used) or even a 2001 Oldsmobile with a spoiler (she loved putting the pedal to the metal), with only 71,000 kilometers and 1,000 tools that we aren’t sure what they’re used for.This is not an ad for a pawn shop, but an obituary for a great Woman, Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother born on May 12, 1921 in Toronto, the daughter of the late Pop (Alexander C.) and Granny (Annie Nigh) Morris.Expect to find an alcoholic dog named Judge passed out at his feet.Unlike previous times, this is not a ploy to avoid creditors or old girlfriends. He will be greatly missed.”cause of death was believed to be “from carrying her oxygen tank up the long flight of stairs to her bedroom that made her heart give out.” Written by her son, Sandy, the obituary starts off sounding more like a pawn shop ad than an obituary.
