An obituary apparently written by a lawyer’s widow blames his stressful law firm job for his heart attack.“Robert Bruce Evanick (always known as Bruce to those who loved him—and those who employed him and exploited his work ethic)—died Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 4, 2007. A massive heart attack killed him,” reads the obituary published in the New Orleans Times-Picayune.“His death should be a warning to all those who believe that they are being used by insensitive employers. He deserved better, both in life and death. Bruce had been seduced into a sedentary and high-stress lifestyle after he moved to New Orleans by the promise of ‘big money’ from a corporate defense law firm. Essentially, his succumbing to that seduction and his devotion to duty caused his death.”A hat tip to Above the Law, which posted the obituary.
