Sounds like a good life, well lived

The obituary of an Alaska man caused me to smile.  It begins:

Captain Donald Alexander Malcolm Jr., 60, died Feb. 28, 2015, nestled in the bosom of his family, while smoking, drinking whiskey and telling lies. He died from complications resulting from being stubborn, refusing to go to the doctor, and raising hell for six decades. Stomach cancer also played a minor role in his demise.

There's more at the link.  Read the comments below it as well.  They're worth it.

Sounds like Mr. Malcolm lived a good life and lived it well.  We need more like him, and we're diminished by their loss. May he rest in peace.

Great obituary. It really gave the flavor of the man. I felt like I knew him or wanted to know him.
