Yes, that last request actually appeared in an obituary published in the Concord, N.C., Independent Tribune: “Also, the family respectfully asks that you do not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016. R.I.P. Grandaddy.”

Fair point.

For what it’s worth, despite what the media might suggest, plenty of the living are equally wary of lending their support to Mrs. Clinton.

C’mon; let’s work together to grant this one grandfather’s last dying wish.

Correction: The original version of this post said the Independent Tribune is based in Concord, New Hampshire. It is not. It is based in Concord, North Carolina. We have edited the article accordingly.  We regret the error.
