Scott E. Entsminger of Mansfield died on the 4th of July at the age of 55 and I’m guessing had pretty explicit instructions for his obituary. I first saw it via Adam Schefter’s Twitter, but I’m sure it’s been around the block of ever-fast-moving Internet. Regardless, I think we might all agree that it takes a special guy to add levity to his own death after passing. Here’s the part of the obituary that will make you smile.
He was an accomplished musician, loved playing the guitar and was a member of the Old Fogies Band. A lifelong Cleveland Browns fan and season ticket holder, he also wrote a song each year and sent it to the Cleveland Browns as well as offering other advice on how to run the team. He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time. Scott was a fun loving, kind and caring man who enjoyed gardening and fishing but his greatest enjoyment was spending time with his family.
I’m positive that’s not an original joke, but what good form on using it anyway.
Rest in peace dear Browns fan. Rest in peace.
