Arkansas Newspaper Publishes Perfect Obituary for The Walking Dead’s Glenn

The Batesville Daily Guard, an Arkansas newspaper, published the perfect obituary for The Walking Dead's Glenn Rhee following the beloved character's shocking, gruesome death on the season 7 premiere Sunday, October 23.

"Glenn Rhee, husband, father-to-be, warrior and friend departed from this world October 23rd. He was 32," the message memorializing the AMC drama's mainstay (portrayed by Steven Yeun) reads. "Born and raised in Michigan to Korean immigrant parents, he settled in Atlanta to undertake his career of delivering pizzas and brightening the world around him until the unthinkable happened — the Walker Apocalypse. It was then that the real Glenn emerged: a man of impeccable moral grounding and logistical wizardry."

The obituary continues, "A faithful friend, Glenn spared no personal risk or inconvenience to care for and provide for his adopted Apocalyptic family of survivors. His bravery in the face of both the Undead and the Brutal Living inspired all who knew him. He exhibited top-notch leadership when his leader and mentor was either unavailable or unable to lead, and with his commitment to moral principles in a world-gone-mad breathed hope and promise into those around him (who meant him no harm)."

As Us Weekly previously reported, Glenn was bludgeoned to death with a baseball bat by newcomer villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who also killed Sergeant Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz) in an equally brutal manner. The Walking Dead's showrunners later warned viewers on the Talking Dead aftershow that the season's carnage is "just getting started."

The Batesville Daily Guard's eulogy concludes, "He is survived by his loving wife Maggie and their unborn child; Rick, Carl and Judith Grimes; Carol Peletier; Daryl Dixon; the Warrior Woman known only as Michonne; and various other adoptive family members and associates that will be more memorable in their eventual deaths than they ever were in life. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations of LITERALLY ANYONE WHO CAN HELP THEM DEFEAT NEGAN be made in his memory."

The Walking Dead airs on AMC Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
