Jeffery H. Cohen “unexpectedly passed away Sunday morning at the age of 70″ in the home where he was raised in Pittsburgh, PA. Cohen’s obituary gives a brief walkthrough of his life, before making one final request.
Cohen grew up in the Squirrel Hill district of Pittsburgh, and worked at Bear Creek Ranch in Montana, where “he took pride in being the only Jewish cowboy that he knew of.” He went to school to become a Chiropractor, then opening his own practice in 1976 where he saw members of the Steelers, Penguins, and Gold Medal-winning athletes. Cohen was the personal chiropractor of several celebrities, including Weird Al and Liza Minelli. He became close friends with children’s television host Fred Rogers.
The obituary highlights Cohen’s skill, selflessness, and sense of humor:
Compassionate and kind, Jeffrey always put others before himself, happily and without hesitation. He had a special, healing touch and he brought relief to thousands of people over the decades. He was also a voracious teller of jokes of all kinds, especially dirty and groan-inducing ones. He had a great smile and all his teeth were still his.
Jeffery’s obituary closes by asking mourners to grant him one special favor:
Jeffrey would ask that in lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Donald Trump.
