Obituary in New York Times

The New York Times did an obituary on quiet legend Artie Wilson, a former shortstop from the Negro League.

They sourced his wife, Dorothy, and used a standard New York Times lead. The lead is successful because it explains the relevance to this man's death even to those who do not avidly follow the game of baseball.

A resume would simply have a list of accomplishments, so in that sense, this obituary differs because it adds feeling and emotion along with a lifetime of accomplishments.
