OOPS! 94-Year Old Man Reads His Own Obituary


WWII veteran Paul Schlegelmilch 94, of Rockville Centre, was pretty shocked to see his own obituary in the Rockville Herald.

The Long Island NY newspaper was supposed to feature a story about Mr. Schlegelmilch's appointment as Grand Marshal for the coming Memorial Day Parade, but instead mistakenly printed his death. Oops.

Mr. Schlegelmilch laughed when asked about his feeling toward his "deceased" status, saying "pretty good." "Not many people get to read their own obituary, right?"

The paper acknowledged the mistake and issued a correction. I'm going to get my copy right now. I'm not feeling very well today. Maybe I'm dead. You never know.
