Wish I could say I came up with this: Hugh Hefner died on Hump Day.

Buh dump dump.

Any of us of a certain age remembers the rite of passage of sneaking a glance at some relative’s Playboy copy. And not for the articles. Once the ol’ interwebs came along, Playboy almost seemed quaint...from another time.

Hugh made wearing pajamas in the daytime almost acceptable.

Payboy became non-relevant once internet porn swamped our culture. But before that having a peek at a relative's treasured Playboy stash was a male rite of passage.

Read the linked story in the OP, it's surprisingly well done (if not too long). Makes me wonder if it had been written a long time ago and just kept for the inevitable day.

that is almost certainly the case.

Believe that to be a good thing. Someone once told me that once a loved one gets to be of a certain age, it’s better to have a well thought out, well researched outline if not an outright eulogy while minds are clear and details are still knowable. I did so for a close family relative so that when he passed, I just added very recent details. It makes it very personal. We’ve all seen the fill in the blank obituaries to match the fill in the blank funerals. The only thing that changes is where to send donations in lieu of flowers.

When I was at Tulane, St. Pat's Day campaigns (vote for someone to "rule" over the traditional Engineering School St. Pat's Dance) consisted of pictures cut from Playboy with campaign slogans written on them (generally with care not to hide the pictures themselves. They were on all the bulletin boards (do they still have those?), taped to the walls, and just everywhere. Probably a practice that was squashed a long time ago.

Good suggestion, Philly.

Too often, the obituary reflects the point of view of the drafter, who is often not even in the immediate family. One example I'm familiar with: Because the family was too distraught, a neighbor volunteered to write the obit; they had played golf together once or twice, so the neighbor added, "and he was an avid golfer," even though the deceased only played golf a few times in his life. The widow was a bit perturbed over that.

He's the first body to be removed from Heaven when he died.

I saw somewhere that he purchased the tomb next to Marilyn Monroe. He never met her (the photos he published in the first issue were taken for a calendar shoot several years before), but he said that he owed his success to her, and he wanted to be buried next to her.

When I lived in Long Beach I actually made a visit to that cemetery, saw the mausoleum in which Marilyn Monroe was interred; it is not too far from UCLA campus, have to go between two skyscrapers to get into it. Buddy Rich and Heather Menzies are among the other people at rest there. Very fitting that he will be by her.

I wonder how she would have felt about that?

Though Heff always struck me as only about Heff

The best person to write the obit is the person himself/herself. My best friend and my first Tulane roommate, died of pancreatic cancer several years ago. He and his wife wrote the obit while he was still able to do it. He even wrote one for the Tulane magazine and asked me to make sure it got in. I did and it did, although they just wrote the basics.
