Dead man gets two obituaries from both his wife and girlfriend on the same page of a newspaper

dead man

A 55-year-old man from New Jersey, Leroy Bill Black, died last Tuesday.

Interestingly, there were two obituaries for him which appeared on the same page of a new newspaper; one was submitted by his wife, the other apparently by his girlfriend  and the matter has got people talking.

Both obituaries were published in The Press of Atlantic City, on top of each other and included the same photo of the deceased, who lived in Egg Harbor Township.

The first obituary identifies the man as Leroy Bill Black and says he was survived by “his loving wife, Bearetta Harrison Black and his son, Jazz Black.” It says Black died at home on Aug. 2 surrounded by his family. No cause of death is given.

The second obituary identifies him as Leroy “Blast” Black and also says Black died at home — but makes no mention of any family being there. The second obituary says in addition to his son, Jazz, Black is survived by his siblings, other family, friends, and his “longtime girlfriend, Princess Hall.” That obituary also says he was a fiberglass technician who died of lung cancer due to fiberglass exposure.

Health Journo Opinion: Looks like he must have died in his 'longtime girlfriend's" home. We hope that the family is comforted at this difficult time.
