Jeffrey Clayton Riegel was a wonderful husband, uncle, brother, and son. He was also a Philadelphia Eagles fan with a pretty good sense of humor.
At least according to his obituary.
Mr. Riegel died on Aug. 18, 2017, at 56 but it appears he had enough time to have some fun on his way out.
His obituary reads relatively standard on the Wimberg Funeral Home website, naming all of the family he leaves behind as well as mentioning some of his favorite greetings for different people and some of his nicknames — some people called him "Toad."
But it's this part that will have Jeffrey smiling in the great beyond:
God gave Jeffrey the miracle of time to prepare which allowed him to verbalize his last wishes. He requested to have 8 Philadelphia Eagles as pall bearers so the Eagles can let him down one last time.
Touche, Mr. Riegel, touche.
Say hello to Reggie, Jerome, and Buddy for us. Maybe they haven't heard a boo in a while, who knows.
You knew it was coming, you just didn’t know how it would happen.
The Eagles are in Foxborough, Massachusetts, tonight for their preseason game against the New England Patriots and the Eagles found a brilliant way to troll the team they defeated in the Super Bowl.
Do you see it?
It looks like the Eagles have shrewdly put the lockers of No. 41 Jeremy Reaves next to No. 33 Josh Adams.
If you don’t get it, re-watch the Super Bowl immediately and look at the final score.
Nick Foles will be back on the field tonight in his first action since winning the MVP of the biggest game of the year last year, too.
Even though it’s only a preseason game, it should be a fun one tonight.

Jason Kelce placed the 2017 Eagles in the lore of Philadelphia sports as the "hungry dogs." They may have ran fast and won a Super Bowl last season but that doesn't mean they're satiated.
Enter Campbell's Soup and Acme.
When Birds fans typically think of Campbell's Soup, it's of Donovan McNabb and his loving Mama and their infamous commercials.
The current team will get some custom cans of their own this season which fans can pick up at local Acmes around the Delaware Valley starting Friday, Aug. 17.
The limited-edition cans are Eagles green and will remind you that the Eagles won Super Bowl LII as you slurp down some chicken noodle soup. They feature the iconic image of the Philadelphia Museum of Art during the championship parade in February.
There is also a sirloin burger variety.
Zach Ertz, who has worked with Campbell's before, is involved and a meet and greet with the Eagles tight end will be one of the prizes you can win.
So next time you have some soup for dinner, make it a Super soup and maybe wash it down with a Super Bowl can of beer.
