A widow in Nebraska has written her late husband’s obituary and she wanted to capture who he REALLY was in it, so it doesn’t read like your average obit. Crystal Sauser lost her husband Eric last month after his two-year battle with cancer and she says he “never wanted pity” so she tried to maintain that in his obituary. The end result? A lovingly hilarious tribute to the husband and father of three that’s gone viral.
"Eric A. Sauser, AKA Super Dad, AKA Easy, just a rockin' dude ... passed away peacefully in his sleep on Friday, February 26, 2021, at the age of 43 with his wife by his side," it reads. "His departure was just in time for him to make his spiritual appearance at every Red Sox spring game.” The obit goes on to describe how Eric loved many people, adding “there is a good chance he told you that - probably sober, but maybe not.”
“Eric loved, in this order, his smoking hot wife, his brilliant kids and family, his many friends, the Boston Red Sox, the Kansas City Chiefs (before being a Chiefs fan was cool), the Huskers, Liverpool Futbol, QT iced tea, Adidas sneakers, fishing, backpacking, hiking, hunting, and any old Chevy he saw on the road,” his obituary reads. “We are not positive, but we think the cause of death was either leukemia or more likely being 'dead sexy.'”
Honestly, this guy sounds like fun! Obviously a great husband, father and all around amazing to his circle. I can only hope to leave a legacy like Eric has :)
