Retired firefighter’s hilarious obituary goes viral

William Ziegler

William Ziegler, a former firefighter with the New Orleans Fire Department, left the world with a bang a couple of weeks ago thanks to his colorful obituary.

The best line — “We think he did it on purpose to avoid having to make a decision in the pending presidential election.”

And this — “He was never one for sentiment or religiosity, but he wanted you to know that if he owes you a beer, and if you can find him in Heaven, he will gladly allow you to buy him another.”
