A Massachusetts man named Carl Crocetti passed away Sunday and used his obituary to ask that his family and friends not to vote for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“Carl requested in lieu of flowers that people elect NOT to vote for Hillary Clinton in the presidential election in November,” the obituary reads.

Mr. Crocetti died after his health had been in steady decline over the past year.

The lifelong Stoughton, Massachusetts resident is survived by his son Carlo.

Mr. Crocetti’s wasn’t the first Massachusetts obituary this election cycle that was used to make a sharp political statement.

Last month, Alba Keus, of Lynn, Massachusetts requested that her loved ones not vote for Donald Trump.
