Larry Darrell Upright, 81, died at a hospital in Concord, North Carolina, last Monday, according to an obituary posted on a local funeral home's website.
It describes the father of two and grandfather of three as an "avid golfer" and "loving" man whose "greatest joy was his family."
However, his relatives added an unusual request. "The family respectfully asks that you do not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016," the obituary concludes.
It also asked people to donate to a Florida children's hospital instead of sending flowers.
A memorial service for Upright was held on Thursday.
