“Ladies’ man” Harry Stamps, 81, of Long Beach, Miss., hated daylight saving time so much that he died the day before “spring forward.”

Stamps, who called the biannual event “The Devil’s Time,” died March 9. According to his obituary in the Sun Herald, “It is not lost on his family that he died the very day that he would have had to spring his clock forward. This can only be viewed as his final protest.” (RELATED: This is the greatest obituary of all time)

The obituary calls Stamps a “natty dresser” whose daily uniform consisted of a white Fruit of the Loom T-shirt and elastic shorts worn above his belly button. Stamps was awarded the epithet of “ladies’ man” due to the strong love he felt towards his mother, sister, wife and two daughters.

Stamps was also regarded as a “foodie” since he loved the finer things in life such as deviled eggs, peanuts, sausage atop Saltine crackers and “buttermilk served in martini glasses garnished with cornbread.” (RELATED: Dead man stops at Burger King for one last Whopper Jr.)

The man — and his family — are certainly a group of characters. As for his funeral arrangements, the obituary reads: “Because of his irrational fear that his family would throw him a golf-themed funeral despite his hatred for the sport, his family will hold a private, family only service free of any type of ‘theme.'”

Harry, we never knew ye, but we’ll all raise a glass of cornbread-garnished buttermilk to you because you seemed like you were probably pretty awesome.
