Georgia Man Has the Greatest Obituary of All-Time
A Georgia man named William “Freddie” McCullough may no longer be with us but his legend will live on thanks to one of the greatest obituaries of all-time.
“Men wanted to be him and women wanted to be with him,” reads the obit. “Freddie loved deep fried Southern food smothered in Cane Syrup, fishing at Santee Cooper Lake, Little Debbie Cakes, Two and a Half Men, beautiful women, Reeses Cups [sic] and Jim Beam. Not necessarily in that order.”
The 61-year-old father of six and granddad of seven “hated vegetables and hypocrites” and was “a master craftsman who single-handedly built his beautiful house from the ground up.”
The death notice was written by his son Mark and, as you can tell, is quite hilarious.
“Freddie adored the ladies,” Mark, continues. “And they adored him.There isn’t enough space here to list all of the women from Freddie’s past.There isn’t enough space in the Bloomingdale phone book…He attracted more women than a shoe sale at Macy’s.”
The obituary has been viewed over 150,000 times at SavannahNow.com and also garnered a ton of guestbook messages from folks who had no clue who Freddie was but would’ve loved to have met him.
“Freddie, I did not know you, but wow,” one wrote. “I’ll bet that Jim Beam is now served in heaven. Ladies in heaven…he has arrived…enjoy!”
