Always leave them laughing.
Judging from the obituary his friends and family wrote for him, Texas native Price Mackenzie Davis would have agreed.
Davis died on Oct. 25. Or, as his family wrote in his obit in the Tyler Morning Telegraph, that’s the date he “made his last inappropriate and probably sarcastic comment.”
He was 31, lived in McKinney, and told stories that were 75 percent true, according to the obituary. The cause of death listed for Davis, a subject not usually broached in more mundane, transactional obits, certainly fell into the category of playful half-truth.
“Price was killed when he rushed into a burning pet store to save a litter of purring, adorable kittens. Or maybe not. We all know he liked to tell stories,” it read.
The obituary had social media strangers wishing they had a chance to meet the guy who’s leaving a legacy of laughs.
