PORT REPUBLIC - A South Jersey man has taken a parting shot at the Philadelphia Eagles in his obituary.
Jeffrey Riegel died last Friday. Before his death, the 56-year-old Port Republic man promised friends a funny message in his obituary.
The longtime Eagles fan’s obituary asks for Riegel “to have 8 Philadelphia Eagles as pall bearers so the Eagles can let him down one last time.”
Riegel was a passionate Eagles fan who owned season tickets for more than 30 years. Sadly, the Eagles never won a Super Bowl during his lifetime.
Riegel’s friend, Lou Jiacopello, tells the Press of Atlantic City he couldn’t help but laugh at his friend’s humor.
Eight friends wearing Eagles jerseys were to lay Riegel to rest on Thursday.
