NJ man gets 2 obituaries – 1 from wife – 1 from long-time girlfriend

Leroy “Blast” Black

Leroy “Blast” Black was much loved during his lifetime. A lot of affection indeed.

After he passed away this week at the age of 55, two obituaries appeared side by side in his local paper, one mentioning his “loving wife”, the other his “long-time girlfriend”.

A report in PhillyVoice.com said that Mr Black died on Tuesday, surrounded by family at his home in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey. Mr Black died after being exposed to “fibreglass exposure” and his funeral is to be held on Sunday in Atlantic City.

The obituaries appeared next to each other

One of the obituaries said he was survived by his “loving wife Bearetta Harrison Black”.

The other referred to his “longtime girlfriend Princess Hall”.

An employee at Greenidge Funeral Homes in Atlantic City told the website that the obituaries were placed separately because “the wife wanted it one way, and the girlfriend wanted it another way”.

He said he not believe their would be a problem as everybody knew it was happening.
