The Quirky Obit of Tim Quirk

February 21, 2017
   We have been debating obits at the True West World Headquarters. Do they belong in True West, and, if so, 
how do we do them? Thanks to Andy Sansom in Kingman, who has been perusing old Kingman Daily Miners
 we get this hilarious, old school example of a no-holds-barred obit.

Kingman Daily Miner, January 11, 1902

Then, wouldn't you know it, Linda Gay Mathis actually finds a photo of said Tim Quirk:

Thanks to the Utah State Historical Society. Too rich. Too quirky!

  1. Do you mean modern obituaries? I much prefer the old ones.
