Man Wants Browns Pallbearers To ‘Let Him Down’
July 9, 2013 by UPI - United Press International, Inc.
MANSFIELD, Ohio, (UPI) – An Ohio man’s obituary says his final request was for six Cleveland Browns to be his pall bearers so the team “can let him down one last time.”
The Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch obituary for Scott E. Entsminger, who died July 4 at the age of 55, describes the man as a “lifelong Cleveland Browns fan and season ticket holder.”
“He also wrote a song each year and sent it to the Cleveland Browns as well as offering other advice on how to run the team,” the obituary reads.
The obituary says mourners at his Tuesday funeral at the Life Celebration Reception Center in Mansfield were encouraged “to wear their Cleveland Browns clothing to the service in honor of Scott.”
However, Entsminger’s final request takes one final swipe at the team he loved.
“He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time,” the obituary says.
