KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina man’s obituary asked two things of friends and family: instead of sending flowers for the funeral, give the money to charity. And don’t vote for Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2016.

WSOC-TV reports the family of 81-year-old Larry Upright added the political message to the obituary announcing the Kannapolis man’s death and burial this week.

Upright’s daughter, Jill McLain, said the rock-ribbed Republican was passionate about politics. She says that recollection prompted his family to ask obituary readers to reject Clinton’s presidential bid.

Mike Upright said his deceased father voiced his opinions regularly.

The obituary also describes Upright as an active member of local Masonic and Shriners organizations and a country club. He retired after a career in the building automation industry.
