WICHITA FALLS -- The obituary of a Dallas Cowboys fan in Texas has gone viral with its thoughts on why he passed away when he did.

"Robert Clyde Drew, beloved husband, father, and Papa, drew his last breath January 25, 2018, mainly, we suspect, to prevent himself from having to watch the Patriots and Eagles in the Superbowl," reads the obituary.

Most Dallas Cowboys fans weren't happy with their longtime division rival winning the big game on Sunday, beating the New England Patriots 41-33.

Drew also went to the grave with a firm belief about his team.

"A loyal Cowboys fan, he died peacefully with his daughter by his side, knowing full well that Dez, did, in fact, catch the ball."

The obituary ends with the family asking that in lieu of flowers, for others to do something nice for someone else.
