Don Asmussen Dictates His Own Obituary

From The San Francisco Chronicle:

Editor’s note: Longtime Chronicle cartoonist Don Asmussen was never conventional. So it was not entirely surprising that just before he died on Thursday, Dec. 9, he decided to dictate his own obituary. He requested that it be published just as he told it.

Hi, this Don Asmussen’s obit.

I’ve spent most of my career in New England or San Francisco, which means that I’m drawn to the chowder industry, and that’s how I’ve made my various career choices. I created the San Francisco Comic Strip, Bad Reporter comic strip and various other comic strips that have appeared in The San Francisco Chronicle.

Read the full auto-obit at The S. F. Chronicle.
