PENNSYLVANIA – One Pennsylvania man decided his final message to family and friends would be a funny one.

Kevin McGroarty died July 22, but he decided to write his own obituary, which has gone viral across the Internet.

Published by the Times Leader, the top of the obituary said, "McGroarty Achieves Room Temperature!" and the laughs continue further down, including, McGroarty leaves behind no children (that he knows of), but if he did their names would be son, "Almighty Thor" McGroarty; and daughter, "Butter Cup Patchouli."

The obituary has garnered more than 345 comments from friends, family and even strangers.

"Kevin, you sound like you were a real hoot!! Heaven must be a little bit brighter, now that you are there!" Linda Kuhr of Virginia wrote.

Marge of Oceanside, N.Y. wrote, "What a wonderful person you were! It would have been a joy to know you. I'm sure your legacy will follow you in your final resting place. The angels are in for a real treat!"
