An obituary for a Pittsburgh man who died this weekend requests that in lieu of flowers "please do not vote for Donald Trump."

Jeffrey Cohen, who died at the age of 70 on Sunday, led a colorful life. His obituary opens by describing that his main philosophy can be summed up as "The meaning of life is 'OOPS!'"

Cohen's obituary describes how he was a chiropractor for celebrities like "Weird Al" Yankovic and Liza Minnelli, and became close friends with Fred Rogers after treating him.

In his later years, Cohen founded the Nimmo Educational Foundation, which conducts research on chronic pain and provides care for those in need of physical therapy.

He is survived by four sons, many grandchildren and his wife, Carol Cohen.

For Cohen's upcoming funeral, he has asked "that in lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Donald Trump. (Also acceptable - donations to the Nimmo Educational Foundation ... or a charity of your choice.)"

Others have mentioned Trump in their obituaries as well. Earlier this month, the GOP presidential contender tweeted a Virginia man's obituary that ended with a plea to vote for the candidate.
