Oregon Man Dies 'Peacefully' After Being Told President Trump Had Been Impeached - TIME

Monday, May 01, 2017

An Oregon man died peacefully after being told — falsely — that President Donald Trump had been impeached, according to his obituary.Michael Garland Elliott, 75, died April 6 after suffering from declining health. His ex-wife, Teresa Elliott, who is described in the obituary as his "best friend" and only surviving relative, was the last voice he heard before he passed away, according to the obituary published in the Oregonian. She told him the president had been impeached from office."And 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."Trump, of course, has not been impeached. He is still very much the president.Teresa Elliott could not be reached for comment.

Donald Trump has been impeached.”Michael Elliott died “peacefully,” surrounded by friends and neighbors in his home in a suburb outside of Portland, Ore., according to an obituary published in the Oregonian.Teresa Elliott, who lives in Texas, said she couldn't make it to Oregon in time. So on April 6, one of Michael Elliott's friends called her and told her that he was about to die. The two talked as someone held up the phone to the dying man's ear.Afterward, one of his friends took the phone “and told me that he had completely relaxed and taken his last breath, and he was gone,” Teresa Elliott said. [The case for impeaching President Donald J. Trump. (Too soon?)] In his obituary, the 75-year-old was described as a “Porsche enthusiast” who owned a dozen of the German cars throughout his life. But there's nothing he loved more than golf, the obituary said, becoming a founding member of a golf club in Oregon.His health had declined over the past decade, but it became worse after congestive heart failure was diagnosed a couple of years ago. He had been bedridden the past several months, Teresa Elliott said. The two, who didn't have children, remained close friends after their divorce.Michael Elliott was a longtime Democrat and was very interested in politics; a “CNN junkie,” he was appalled by the current political climate. He found President Trump to be a “loathsome individual,” Teresa Elliott said. Asked what, specifically, her ex-husband had said about Trump, she replied, “Nothing that you could print.” [‘Prediction professor

'He belongs to Alaska': Adventurer, wilderness conservationist Ken Leghorn dies at 62 - Juneau Empire (subscription)

Monday, May 01, 2017

That’s why he was successful.”That ability to relate to people immediately stood out to others. Coppens met Leghorn just a few years ago at an annual event in Bend, Oregon, called Ski for Light. Here, volunteers including Coppens and Leghorn would work with blind people who were looking to learn how to ski.[Skiing into the unknown: Juneau cross-country skiers volunteer with blind, visually impaired] Coppens was having a particularly difficult time with a man named Chris whom she was working with, but Leghorn came over and began a conversation with Chris where he made him feel more comfortable. Leghorn didn’t say much, just asking Chris a few questions, but Coppens could see that Chris was beginning to relax.“He never got frustrated,” Coppens said. “He never got cynical. He just kept plugging away trying to do new things. That’s a lesson for me. I get discouraged and I do tend to jump to judgment. … I’m still learning from him.”Coppens’ son Seth expressed a similar sentiment, saying that hearing stories from old friends of Leghorn’s has left an impression. Leghorn, an avid violinist, worked with Seth quite a bit over the past couple years with the instrument.Leghorn’s exploits with the violin were known all over the state. He took the instrument with him on some trips, serenading coves and forests throughout the state as he launched into song from his kayak.“He had such an affection for joyful things,” Coppens said, “and music was definitely a big part of that.”One of Leghorn’s final projects was to raise funds for a performing arts center in Juneau. Even just a couple weeks before his death, Leghorn was still making trips and helping set up fundraisers for the center.He remained as active as he could in his final months, whether it was assisting with a shipment of fish from Sitka to Washington, D.C., for a fundraising dinner there or going to a show at Folk Fest. When he had to stay in the house, he set up his bed in his living room to gaze out the large window there to watch birds.Leghorn had previously served on the board at Audubon Alaska, a conservation nonprofit based in Anchorage, and Audubon planned an event in May where Leghorn would blog about the birds he was watching from home.Now that Leghorn is gone, Audubon is inviting others to record the birds they see, in honor of Leghorn.The fact that he was so active and involved in his final months wasn’t lost on Warner. The past few months weren’t easy, but she made sure to visit a few times and call her father often. She ensured him that the lessons he taught her, such as being sure to treat others with kindness and understanding, had stuck with her.Seeing Leghorn’s legacy continue through his vast collection of friends has also stuck with Warner.“You’ll always have those connections and you’ll always have those people who can be there with you or for you,” Warner said.Those people have come out in droves in recent weeks, many of them telling stories akin to Skaggs’ anecdote from that sailboat two decades ago. Those connections, more like family than friends, were happy to be part of his adventures,

Obit: Oregon Man Put At Peace By Being Told 'Trump Has Been Impeached' - TPM

Monday, May 01, 2017

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.”Read his whole obituary here.
