Man's Obituary Asks People Not to Vote For Hillary Clinton


In lieu of flowers, do not vote for Hillary Clinton.

That's the final wish of one Massachusetts man, who asked friends and family not to pick the Democrat in his obituary.

Carl Crocetti, 62, passed away on Sunday after a decline in health over the past year.

"Carl requested in lieu of flowers that people elect NOT to vote for Hillary Clinton in the presidential election in November," his obituary reads.

Speaking to CBS affiliate WBZ, his son said Crocetti was "very animated, very passionate" about the presidential race.

“What I will say is, he wants to make America great again," Carlo Crocetti told the station. "I’m just trying to honor him as best I can. And this is how I’m doing it."

Crocetti was a life-long Stoughton resident who owned a family meat processing plant that specialized in Italian sausage, according to his obituary. He leaves behind his son and daughter-in-law and their four children, as well as his sister, brother-in-law, stepchildren and his girlfriend.

"His input, humor and outlook on life was always interesting and provided a unique perspective on life," the obituary reads.

Crocetti is not the only person to attempt to sway voters from beyond the grave this election cycle.

An obituary for Jeffrey Cohen, a chiropractor from Pittsburgh, requested that people "do not vote for Donald Trump" in January.

And earlier that month, Ernest Overbey, a 65-year-old Virginia man who lost his battle with cancer, encouraged the grieving to vote for the GOP billionaire. His obituary stated: “Please vote for Donald Trump!”

Trump was so touched, he tweeted out Overbey’s obit. "Thank you so much," he wrote. "Earnest must have been a great person."
