According to the published obituary of Michael Garland Elliot in The Oregonian, friends informed the dying man of President Donald Trump’s non-existent impeachment.
As a last ditch effort to ease Elliot’s April 6 passing, the man’s ex-wife told him that Trump was no longer the President of the United States. He died moments later.
The obit reads:
Mike ran out of family long ago and is survived by his ex-wife and best friend, Teresa Elliott. Though their marriage ran aground, their friendship only grew stronger and hers was the last voice Mike heard. And the last thing she said to him was “Donald Trump has been impeached.” Upon hearing that he took his final, gentle breath, his earthly work concluded. Mike will be forever missed but never forgotten.
It is unknown how old Elliot was, as his obit states he was unsure if he was born in 1940 or 1941. He graduated from the University of Virginia, later moving to Long Beach, Calif. where he sought to fulfill his interests in golf and basketball.
His obituary states that “he joined a semi-pro basketball team that toured the country playing exhibition games, dressed as women.”
He loved golf, but once became so angered by an errant shot that he threw his club into a tree and eventually, “every club in his bag was in that tree,” his obtiuary stated. When he was no longer able to play golf, “he threw things at the TV instead.”
His memorial is reportedly being planned for August… and he died under the false belief that President Trump had just been impeached from office, according to his obituary published in The Oregonian.
