These sample obituary templates are provided as guidelines to get you started on writing a death notice for your friend or loved one who has died. Just like how you might use a template for designing resumes or creating family chore charts, a template for an obituary gives you a starting point. An obituary recounts the events and details of the final services and briefly covers biographical information about the person’s life.

Reading a selection of obituaries sometimes feels formulaic or cold, and it may be hard to imagine filling one out for someone you love. Reciting those details may seem a little cold and clinical, but it is important to get the basics right. While you do not need to name each grandson and cousin, it is important to write down an overall summary of family members who passed away before your loved one, and of surviving families.
