Aaron Purmort led an amazing life.
He fought crime, married Gwen Stefani, and was known to many as Spider-Man. Well, not really, but we don't love his humorous obituary any less.
The 35-year-old dad from Minneapolis wrote his own obituary with his wife's help, before he passed away from brain cancer on Nov. 25.
"I've never laughed and cried more in one sitting, but I'm glad we got to do this," his wife, Nora McInerny, wrote on her blog chronicling Purmort's journey with cancer.
He also found the humour in his disease while he was alive. This is one of our favourite posts from his Instagram account.
The family set up a crowdfunding account to help pay for some of his cancer treatment costs. People who donated also received a clever T-shirt with the slogan, "Still Kickin'."
"This isn't just a t-shirt," according to the campaign's description. "It's a message to the world no matter what life hands you, giving up is for wusses. It doesn't matter if it's a brain tumor, a lost puppy or farting in a meeting, you're still kickin. Because you're a tough sonofabitch."
While it appears he was a hoot in real life, McInerny writes her husband was also a remarkable person.
"Aaron was always kinder and more patient and more giving than he needed to be. He was grace and love in a spindly caucasian package."
Sorry readers, quick retraction: We were pretty sure that Purmort wasn't Spider-Man, but he apparently revealed his true colours on Halloween in October.
Let's talk about Halloween: Spent last night making Ralph a Doc Ock costume, which he rejected due to weight and general lack of craftsmanship. Somehow decided FINE, I'LL WEAR IT YA INGRATE! Wrestled @purmort into his Spider-Man unitard only to realize it's on backwards. Okay, add a sweatshirt. While putting on the mask he accuses me of strangling him (PROVE IT). #ralphiegrams decides for the first time that he HATES HIS ELEPHANT COSTUME. Promptly shits when I get the bodysuit on him, tears at his beloved Elephant ears until I put on his monkey hat. FINE. This is the best we could do, and I wouldn't trade all this for anything. Happy Tumorversary, darling Aaron.
