(CNN) Larry Upright died just one day after Hillary Clinton announced she was running for president.
And in his obituary, his family made just two requests: please donate to a children’s hospital, and please don’t vote for Clinton.
Upright, a staunch Republican, died Monday at a North Carolina hospital. He was 81.
“In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to Shriners Hospital for Children,” his obituary reads. “Also, the family respectfully asks that you do not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016. R.I.P. Grandaddy.”
Daughter Jill McLain said it was natural to put that line in her father’s tribute.
“He was very passionate about politics and probably passed a little of that on,” she told CNN affiliate WSOC.
Son Michael Upright said he knew his father would enjoy the request.
