The New York Times obituary for Jacques Dupin, a French artist and poet, has a normal obituary lead and second paragraph.
The chronology of Dupin's life differs from a resume because it does not simply list his accomplishments. The writer listed several notable works of art and publications of Dupin's and quoted experts in the fields or fans on the impact these works had on them or art in general. There was no extensive list of everything he had done, simply listed one after another, as a resume would.
The obituary ended differently than with the traditional list of who the deceased is survived by. In this case, the writer chose to end with a kicker, a quote from a professor of French literature commenting on Dupin's character.
