Analysis on obits

In this obituary about Karl Kassulke from the Pioneer Press, a former Minnesota Viking, the reported did not use any sources. The article has a pretty standard lead for an obituary, The lead works well, but this particular article is different because it doesn't end the story with who Kassulke is survived by. In fact, it doesn't name who he is survived by at any point in the article. This may be because he just passed away today and the story is in progress.
