Jeffrey H. Cohen D.C. "unexpectedly passed away Sunday morning at the age of 70 in the Squirrel Hill home where he was raised." This is how his obituary reads in the Legacysection of thePittsburgh Post Gazette.

"He joins his parents, Dr. Harold and Harriet Cohen in the next world. As a teenager, Jeff spent his summers working at Bear Creek Ranch in Montana, where he learned to ride horses, chew tobacco, and 'shovel more horse manure than you've ever seen in your life.' He took pride in being the only Jewish cowboy that he knew of."

The obituary is a real beauty of a piece. It covers his life as a chiropractor who ended up with a business that included many sports luminaries, olympic and professional. It tells you about his large family, a wife and four sons. It is clear that Mr. Cohen has a sense of humor. The final line is probably the best quote on the internet today.

"Jeffrey would ask that in lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Donald Trump.

(Also acceptable -- donations to the Nimmo Educational Foundation -- www.nimmoed.org -- or a charity of your choice.)"

I did not know the man and most likely neither did you. But he sounds like a good-hearted and fun man with a very full life. Read about him here and give this cowboy who has finally shed his mortal coil and rode off into the sunset, his final wish -- don't vote for Donald Trump.
