An Indiana man’s obituary is making the rounds online because of the amusing way in which it is written.

Just check out this opening line:

“Terry Wayne Ward, age 71, of DeMotte, IN, escaped this mortal realm on Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018, leaving behind 32 jars of Miracle Whip, 17 boxes of Hamburger Helper and multitudes of other random items that would prove helpful in the event of a zombie apocalypse.”

Ward’s obituary also mentions he had “zero working knowledge of the Kardashians” and that he “died knowing that The Blues Brothers was the best movie ever, (young) Clint Eastwood was the baddest-ass man on the planet, and hot sauce can be added to absolutely any food.”

According to his obituary, Ward did not like ‘uppity foods’ like hummus, he always bought cars used, and he never had a personal cell phone.

He was an active combat veteran in the Viet Nam War.

He is survived by wife Kathy, who he was married to for 48 years.

According to the obituary, Ward was a renowned distributor of popsicles and ice cream sandwiches to his grandchildren.
