In a recent obituary published in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, a 35-year-old man wrote of his own passing, and jokingly revealed himself as “Spider-Man,” encouraging his son to “avenge his father’s untimely death.”

SCREENGRABAARONAaron Purmort, 35, began his obituary by saying he “died peacefully at home on November 25 after complications from a radioactive spider bite that led to years of crime-fighting and a years long battle with a nefarious criminal named Cancer, who has plagued our society for far too long.”

The obituary was published in the Minneapolis Star Tribune Sunday, and Purmort’s wife, Nora, also shared it on her blog, called myhusbandstumor.com.

The man and his wife wrote the obituary together, according to the post.

“I’ve never laughed and cried more in one sitting, but I’m so glad we got to do this. I love this man so damn much,” she wrote.

“He is survived by his parents Bill and Kim Kuhlmeyer, father Mark Purmort (Patricia, Autumn, Aly), sisters Erika and Nicole, first wife Gwen Stefani, current wife Nora and their son Ralph,” the obituary continues.

It is Ralph who is cited as the future avenger of Purmort’s, aka “Spider-Man’s,” death.

According to multiple reports, Purmort was diagnosed with brain cancer back in 2011.

A&E plans to release an upcoming documentary, “a&n,” that tells the couple’s story.

A crowdfunding Web site was also set up to help pay for Purmort’s medical and funeral expenses.

According to the obituary, a service will be held for Purmort Dec. 3 in Minneapolis.
