The site was created by former Asheville Citizen-Times reporter Paul Clark, who writes about himself:
I’m Paul Clark, a journalist who lives in the Asheville, NC, area. I first became interested in people’s obituaries at my first daily newspaper job in the 1980s, when each of us reporters was tasked with writing them up when funeral homes called. There was something about fascinating about these lives – what the departed did for a living, where they lived, who was in their family and who they touched.
Little bios, the obits are one of the most interesting parts of any newspaper and its Web site. I’m passing along to you some of those I encounter on my daily perusal of the Web. I hope you find these lives as interesting as I do.
Obits are grouped in different categories, such as aviation, comedy, education, film, journalism, music and politics.
