Newspaper Obituary Demands Justice for The Walking Dead’s Glenn


Warning: This post contains spoilers for the season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead viewers were horrified to find out that not one but two beloved characters were fated to meet their ends in Sunday’s premiere, as both Abraham and Glenn were beaten to death by Negan within minutes of one another. However, while the loss of the Sarge was disappointing, for most, the real blow to the heart came when the Saviors leader turned his barbed-wire-wrapped bat on one of the only remaining original group members.

To honor the fallen fan-favorite, The Batesville Daily Guard, an Arkansas Newspaper, ran an obituary Tuesday celebrating the life of the pizza delivery boy turned heroic zombie slayer.

Glenn Rhee, husband, father-to-be, warrior and friend departed from this world October 23rd. He was 32. Born and raised in Michigan to Korean immigrant parents, he settled in Atlanta to undertake his career of delivering pizzas and brightening the world around him until the unthinkable happened — the Walker Apocalypse. It was then that the real Glenn emerged: a man of impeccable moral grounding and logistical wizardry.

Following the heartfelt message, the eulogy concluded with a plea for revenge. “In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations of LITERALLY ANYONE WHO CAN HELP THEM DEFEAT NEGAN be made in his memory,” the last sentence read.
