Blog Analysis Entry: Obituaries

Giovanni Parisi, Boxing Champion, Dies at 41

This obituary is very short and does not follow the standard obituary that was given in class. The lead is a standard obituary lead, but it does not list family members, his place and date of birth, or any other information that would have told his life story. This obituary reminds me of the short obituaries that were printed after 9/11, because it concentrates on one aspect of his life rather than telling anything else. It is different from a resume because it doesn't list everything about his life. It only lists what he was most known for; boxing. It does not seem like any family members were contacted, if he had any, because the only sources used were an interview on a television show by another boxer and the official who confirmed his cause of death.
