Raymond Alan Brownley died at the age of 82, yet his larger-than-life personality and stubbornness will never be forgotten.

I've never thought of the what my own obituary would say some day. I would hope that my life will leave a lasting impression on those closest to me so that they will be as compelled to write something equally incredible.

Big Al, also known as Raymond Alan Brownley, passed away on September 21st. I don't know who this Big Al guy is, but he sure seems pretty amazing.

His obituary truly speaks volumes of his personality. I've decided to highlight my favorite parts.

He despised canned cranberry sauce, wearing shorts, cigarette butts in his driveway, oatmeal, loud-mouth know-it-alls, Tabasco sauce, reality TV shows, and anything to do with the Kardashians.


I get it Big Al, I'm so over the Kardashians too... but don't you talk bad about my Tabasco sauce! I love the heat!

Big Al also had many loves in his life, not just his wife and children, but the finer things in life:

He also loved milk shakes, fried shrimp, the Steelers, the Playboy channel, Silky's Gentlemens Club, taking afternoon naps in his recliner, hanging out at the VFW, playing poker, eating jelly beans by the handful, and his hunting dogs-his favorite being Holly Hill Rip Van Winkle, a loyal beagle that answered to the nickname of Rip.


The obituary goes on and on and on... I mean this is the longest obituary I have ever seen. You can read the rest of the legendary obituary here.
