Fan leaves hilarious request in obituary for Cleveland Browns players to be his pall bearers

Scott Entsminger was proclaimed as a "fun loving" man in his Columbus Dispatch obituary, and he did a great job getting his friends and family and everyone else to laugh one last time.

His obituary discusses his love for the Cleveland Browns, how he was a lifelong fan and season-ticket holder and how "he also wrote a song each year and sent it to the Cleveland Browns as well as offering other advice on how to run the team."

Then there was a request for pall bearers that is a simply tremendous punchline:

"He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time," the obituary said.

That is just fantastic (and h/t to Larry Brown Sports and CBS' Eye on Football for finding the greatest NFL-related obituary we've seen).

The obituary said that Entsminger died at age 55. He worked 32 years at General Motors before retiring.

Our prayers go out to his family, and we hope that they all got one last smile from Scott with his obituary.
