This Man's Obituary Is Just Two Words Long

(FOX 11) North Dakota newspaper Inforum published one of the shortest and most to-the-point obituaries ever.

An obit for Douglas Legler apparently ran Wednesday with his photograph and two simple words: "Doug died."

Legler's daughter, Janet Stoll, told the paper that her late father always wanted his obituary to be short and sweet.

"He said over and over, when I die I want my obituary to just say 'Doug Died,'" Stoll told the paper. "(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?'"

Stoll described her dad as "very lighthearted" and said he had a great sense of humor.

"I'm sure he's laughing up there now," Stoll said.
