Loren G. “Sam” Lickteig of Grandview, Missouri died last week at the age of 81. His obituary in the Kansas City Star lists the cause of death as “complications from MS and heartbreaking disappointment caused by the Kansas City Chiefs football team” (emphasis mine).   According to MSN, Lickteig had several Chiefs shirts in his wardrobe and wore red ones when the Chiefs were doing well and black ones when they were losing. Lickteig didn’t write his own obit in advance but, his daughter says, “He was quite the jokester. So this is his last laugh.” As an aside, I’m not sure what to make of the guestbook comment (above). To me, it reads, “Wow. We figured he was dead already.” Probably not the best thing to say after someone dies. Another of the guestbook comments says, “To Sam’s family: Hang in there. We will find a cure for this horrible disease.” I assume the writer was referring to MS, but I read that thinking that he or she was referring to the Chiefs. Rest in peace, Sam. “Loren G. ‘Sam’ Lickteig Obituary,” Kansas City Star “Football fan dies of heartbreak after team’s losing streak,” MSN Now The post K.C.
