Douglas Legler's obituary in the Fargo Forum is shorter than his own name.

Short and sweet. (via Fargo Forum)

Douglas Allen Legler, 85, died recently in North Dakota. He was a husband and father who lived a long and fruitful life, working at times as a truck driver, vending machine repairman, and farm equipment painter. He was also a singer, and once placed second in a talent show. But he was adamant that none of that information appear in his obituary. His daughter Janet Stoll told The Fargo Forum:

"He said over and over, when I die I want my obituary to just say 'Doug Died.' [Other people's obituaries] would say 'he was the president of this, a director of this' and Dad would say, 'What, couldn't they hold down a job?'"
