It was his dying wish, apparently.
What better way to rally support for your political ideals than to use the death of a loved one? Some people have no shame, apparently.
Larry Darrell Upright, 81, passed away recently. His family posted an obituary notice in the newspaper listing his accomplishments, work history, and that he was a family man. However, the end of the obituary was rather unusual. It read: “Also, the family respectfully asks that you do not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016. R.I.P. Granddaddy.”
The obituary ran in the Friday edition of the Concord-Kannapolis Independent Tribune, and was posted on the website for the funeral home which Upright’s services will take place.
Many people shared their hatred of Hilary Clinton in the online guest book.
“Our deepest sympathy to the entire family. We promise not to vote for Hillary,” one mourner wrote.
“God Bless,” another wrote. “We would not vote for Hillary if she was the only one running.”
In fact, even random people on the internet vowed to not vote for Hilary.
“I am a stranger and I do not know you or your departed. However, I saw the obit and wanted to express my condolences and to let you know that your sense of humor is wonderful,” one person wrote. “Please know that we will not be voting for Hillary. Blessings to you and your family.”
Poor Hilary. How do you campaign against a dead man’s wishes? And poor Larry Darrell Upright. He will forever be known as the guy that didn’t want people to vote for Hilary Clinton, rather than for his accomplishments as a family man.
