‘Loving Wife’ and ‘Longtime Girlfriend’ Place Competing Obits After Man’s Death

Leroy Bill Black. The man, the myth, the legend! A man so special, he had two obituaries printed in the Atlantic City newspaper. One by his loving wife and one by his longtime girlfriend.

If you look at Black’s picture in the obit, he doesn’t look like much. He wasn’t a wealthy man. He was only a fiberglass technician, but he had to be special to have gained the affection and devotion of two women.


Black,55, was an Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey resident, who died Tuesday from cancer.

Depending which one you are reading, he was survived by his “loving wife Bearetta Harrison” Black, or his longtime girlfriend Princess Hall.

According to Phillyvoice, a rep for the Greenidge Funeral Home says that both notices were placed because “the wife wanted it one way, and the girlfriend wanted it another way.”

He also said Black’s family knew the double obituaries would be happening, and therefore doesn’t expect any issues.
And just in case you were wondering, there will only be one funeral.
