PORTLAND, Ore. (KATU) - An Oregon man died peacefully earlier this month after his ex-wife falsely told him President Donald Trump had been impeached.

According to the obituary in The Oregonian - which is now going viral - Michael Garland Elliott's health had been deteriorating for the past decade.

"He honestly didn't know" in which year he was born, either 1940 or 1941, in Charlottesville, Virginia, and eventually moved to the West Coast. Elliott was "the sharpest dresser in town, single-handedly keeping Nike's apparel wing in the black."

His ex-wife was by his side before he passed away, and the last thing she said to him was, "Donald Trump has been impeached."

"Upon hearing that he took his final, gentle breath, his earthly work concluded," the obituary reads.
