Humor and death may seem like opposites, but an obituary printed last week in the Kansas City Star has people there mourning...and laughing.

Football fan and Air Force veteran Loren Lickteig's obituary reads "Loren G. Lickteig passed away November 14, 2012, of complications from MS and heartbreaking disappointment caused by the Kansas City Chiefs."

The obit was written by Lickteig's daughters, who say their dad would have loved these last words.

"If we weren't laughing, we'd be crying," said Diana Hennessey, Lickteig's daughter. "And my dad was a huge Chiefs fan, and he loved his Chiefs. And he also had a very, very quick sense of humor."

That obituary was printed on the same day the chiefs lost 28-6 to the Cincinnati Bengals.
