An Oregon man named Michael Elliott apparently died at peace on April 6 after his “ex-wife and best friend” told him a little white lie: that President Donald Trump had been impeached.

That’s according to his humorous obituary, posted on OregonLive.com, which included quite a few gems, including that he didn’t know which year he was born (1940 or 1941) and that he “joined a semi-pro basketball team that toured the country playing exhibition games, dressed as women.”

He also was apparently not a fan of Trump, as his ex-wife and best friend, Teresa Elliott, was prompted to put him at peace with the “fake news” that Trump had been kicked out of office.

“The last thing she said to him was ‘Donald Trump has been impeached.'” the obituary reads. “Upon hearing that he took his final, gentle breath, his earthly work concluded.”
