Unusual Obituary

Thank you to Dick Eastman, https://blog.eogn.com/2018/10/09/a-very-unusual-obituary/, for mentioning this obituary (the obit is a tad long). I will let you decide which version of the story you go with. If you are in the area on November 9, 2018, they are holding a memorial for him. You can see the obit at https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/delawareonline/obituary.aspx?n=rick-stein&pid=190409566. Below is a snippet of it:

You can choose which version you want to believe or share your own story about Rick with us at the Greenville Country Club on Friday, November 9, 2018 from 3:00-6:00pm.

Here’s the obituary on a funeral home’s website which may or may not have a connection to the deceased: https://www.chandlerfuneralhome.com/obituaries/rick-stein/.

He’s not yet on Find-A-Grave, but it’s only a matter of time before somebody adds him there, most likely as a Burial Unknown (BU).

I also collect unusual or humorous obituaries as they can be entertaining. This one is a few years old, but somebody paid $79.95 to keep it permanently up: https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/sunherald/obituary.aspx?n=harry-stamps&pid=163538353&fh id=4025. Harry Stamps is on Find-A-Grave – https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/106589151/harry-weathersby-stamps, but I am not sure he was

Possibly cremated and his ashes were scattered.

It’s possible, but he could have been buried, inurned, or entombed as the obit does not specifically state his final resting place.

In most cases, a humorous obit tends to spark a wave of humorous obits for a brief period after a new one appears. There were a few humorous ones that popped up after Harry’s obit showed up in 2013.
