82 year old Raymond "Big Al" Brownley's favorite catchphrase was "Life is hard, but harder if your stupid." That pretty much says all you need to know about the man. But wait, there's more. "Big Al's" brutally honest obituary tells us among other things his passions in life, which, in addition to his "adorable" grandchildren, included "four-letter words," "four-wheel drive pickup trucks," and the "Four Horsemen of liquor: Jack, Jim, Johnnie and Jose."

Raymond also "despised canned cranberry sauce, wearing shorts, cigarette butts in his driveway, oatmeal, loud-mouth know-it-alls, Tabasco sauce, reality TV shows, and anything to do with the Kardashians.”

Do yourself a favor and read the obit from start to finish as it appeared in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. If you're like me, after reading it, you'll not only wish you knew the man, you'll feel like you did.
