A Connecticut family whose father recently died sends it to the best of their knowledge: through laughter.
Joe Heller spent the rest of his life playing tricks on others when he died on Sunday at the age of 82, his family could not resist playing one last trick before retiring their patriarch ̵
Inspired by her father's unique vision of life, Monique Heller (one of Joe's three daughters) wrote The Comedian, who was touching on behalf of her family, and shared it with the website of Robinson, Wright & Weymer Funeral Home, CNN.
"My dad has an unorthodox attitude to life, and I wanted to honor him and make people smile," Monique told the outlet.
The long memorial article describes in detail how Joe, born during the Great Depression, led a life of "frugality, hoarding and cheap mischief, often at the expense of others".
"When doctors confronted his daughters last week with the news that" their father is a very sick man, "and they responded at the same time," They have no idea, "the obituary says jokingly.
From the beginning, Monique had fun with her father "torturing his siblings through a childhood full of disgusting pranks, with his brother Bob generally serving as his wingman."

"He called his first dog, Fart & # 39 ;, so she had to scream his name to come home when he ran away," said Monique Hilari ously wrote in the obituary.
Later in life, when Joe was self-taught in Cheeseborough Ponds, he met a woman named Irene and she soon became his wife – something that Monique joked was surprising to this day.
"[Irene] was misled and thought he was a charming individual with decency. Boy, has she ever been wrong, "it says in the obituary. "Joe embarrassed her everyday with his mouth and choice of clothes. To this day, we do not know how he convinced our mother, a very decent woman and a pillar in her church, to sew and make the colorful costumes and props he used for his antics. "

In fact, they were only improved, especially when the girls began to date.
"During its founding years, Joe made sure that their moral fibers were enriched by both Archie Bunker and Benny Hill. When they met, Joe greeted their dates by first going through their number plates and looking for bald tires, "Monique wrote. "If their vehicle passed the inspection, they were invited to the house where shotguns, harpoons, and sheepmen were exhibited."
His family also joked about Joe's tendency to hoard items from the "Essex Dump" frequently. "Make nasty naps and snore incredibly loud."
"He left his family a house full of manure, 300 pounds of birdseed and dead houseplants, with which they have no idea what to do," Monique wrote If ever there was a treasure he had torn between the shards of rubble beneath you, please wait the appropriate time to contact the family and receive your loot, which will be available tomorrow. "
" Joe was There was no road, no restaurant, or a friend's home in Essex where he did not fall asleep: there was no reason that was too formal or too boring, and that Joe did not interrupt with his apnea and his heavy snoring. ", Added her.

In addition to his three daughters, Joe leaves behind three siblings, two sisters-in-law, 14 nieces and nephews, and eight grandchildren who, according to the obituary, "argue about his assets." He died of Irene and "his favorite fish Jack, which we found in the freezer last week".
On Thursday, September 13th, a feast is scheduled for which his family has asked guests to wear the "most worn" inappropriate T-shirt they like to see in public. as Joe has often done "in honor of his hatred of" formality and constipation ".
His funeral is scheduled for Friday, September 13th. Instead of flowers, his family joked that they were "seeking donations to make up for the release of an overly long obituary that would have really infuriated Joe."

does not last long ,
"Everyone has a Joe story and we would all like to hear it," wrote Monique. "Joe faced his death and mortality, as he did with his life, and often told us when he fell dead to dig a hole in the backyard and just let him in." To his disappointment, he will do it right buried … next to his wife. "
" Sorry, Mom, Lisette and I have done our best to take care of him and keep him off your hair for as long as possible, "she added jokingly. "Now back in your court."
