A good friend of mine passed on Monday. His obit is hilarious!

It's the Lord's turn to put up with Dave now. David XXXX, of XXXXXX, went to be with the Lord on Sept. 10, 2012. Dave lived a fun-filled life doing what he loved to do: a computer tech with XXXXXXXXX and an avid partier. Dave was born in XXXXX, on June 2, 1965. Dave grew up in a home with a large family around him which included his parents, brothers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins always surrounding him. Some of Dave's favorite pastimes included relaxing in front of his state of the art entertainment center while sitting in his favorite chair and drinking a Guinness, driving his Corvette, and going out on XXXXX Lake with his neighbor Dave XXXX - oh yeah, and bringing along his Guinness. Dave also had a cat, that strangely enough, his name was Guinness. Dave also enjoyed classic movies and the local band ManOWar. Dave was a good friend to many of his colleagues at XXXXXX. His friends were all by his side during his illness which is a great testament of the lives he touched during his stay on earth. Dave will be remembered and missed by many. Dave is survived by two brothers, Rick (Charlene), of XXXXXX., and Paul (Dianne), also of XXXXX; several nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, all living in XXXXX along with his family and friends here in XXXXX. His family and friends would like to thank the staff at the Matthew House for making Dave's last few days as happy and comfortable as possible. The professionalism and kindness shown by the people at the Matthew House was unparalleled. There will be no calling hours or services. Instead there will be a small get-together at the Knights of Columbus on XXXXXXXXXX from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, to celebrate Dave's life. In lieu of flowers, anyone wishing to help out is asked to make a donation in Dave's name to the Matthew House, XXXXXXXXXX.

Omissions are due to Dave's private nature. I will miss you, my friend. Cross gently.
