So an Alabama fan unfortunately passed away about a week ago at a very young age, but in his obituary he showed his personality in an awesome line. Whether he is to credit or his family is, I’m not quite sure, but it is a brilliantly wonderful and personal line that made a positive moment out of a sad situation for his friends and family.

Glenn Nunley is going to meet legendary Alabama coach Paul “Bear” Bryant.

The obituary from the Ledger-Enquirer:

July 8, 1962-
August 10, 2013
Columbus , Ga- Glenn Scott Nunley, known as “Rocco” to close friends, left us to join Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant in our heavenly Father’s coliseum on August 10th, 2013.

His devotion to the University of Alabama’s Football team and the Green Bay Packers is still legendary to those who knew him.

Quoting Bear Bryant “If you want to walk the Heavenly streets of gold, you gotta know the password…”ROLL TIDE ROLL!” (and Rocco always knew the password!).

SB Nation said it best: “Rest in peace and Roll Tide.”
