I would like to take this opportunity to say a few words about my dear friend Willy Loman. Willy was one of the most kind-hearted, hardworking men I ever had the pleasure of knowing. He always went out of his way to help others, and he was always friendly and cheerful, no matter what obstacles he faced in life.
Willy was an amazing salesman, and he always achieved whatever goals he set for himself. He was never afraid of taking risks, and his determination and persistence always paid off. He was an inspiration to everyone who knew him, and he will be deeply missed.
In the great scheme of life, Willy was an average man who didn’t have anything too unique about him. He was eventually brought down by the world around him. In his dreams, he made people happy and saw himself in a positive light. Willy worked hard at his job just to make other individuals smile. He had determination, intelligence, warmth, and compassion in such a ruthless place. The planet finally caught up with Willy and took him away; however, his soul will stay with loved ones forevermore.
Willy was born into a family of modest means. He was one of four children, and his parents were not well off. Willy’s father died when he was very young, leaving his mother to raise the children on her own. Willy always looked up to his older brother, Ben, who was successful and had made something of himself. Willy always wanted to be like Ben and make something of himself as well.
Willy married the love of his life, Linda, and they had two sons together. They struggled financially throughout their marriage, but they always stuck together and loved each other unconditionally.
Willy worked tirelessly to provide for his family and give them the best life he could. Even though Willy was not the most successful man, he was always happy. He was always chasing his dreams and striving to be better. He was a good man who loved his family and worked hard for them. Willy will be missed by all who knew him, but he will never be forgotten.
Willie had a wife who loved him and two great sons, Biff and Happy. However, Biff never could meet his father’s expectations which lead to difficulties between the two of them. By the time Biff was 34 years old, he had moved back home for a short while- something that deeply angered Willie since he believed firmly that one should have a job with consistent income by this age. Despite this push from Willie though, both happy and look up to their father as being generous and caring when they were children.
In their adulthood, however, Biff and Happy begin to realize that their father was not as perfect as they thought.
“Biff was always a special boy. He was always so full of life. When he was younger, I used to worry that he wouldn’t amount to anything because he never seemed to stick with anything for very long. But then I realized that Biff just needed some time to find his way. And I’m so proud of the man that he’s become. Biff is a good man, with a good heart. And I know that he’ll make something of himself someday.”
We are all here today to celebrate the life of my father, Willy Loman. Willy passed away at the age of 60 years old. He leaves behind two sons – my brother Happy and myself – as well as his wife Linda, whom he was married to for 40 beautiful years. We all have our flaws, but we will not remember him for his flaws. Instead, we will remember him for his perseverance, good intentions and values that he instilled in both my brother and me.
Willy was born in New York City on September 15th, 1915. Willy was the middle child between his sister and brother. Willy always wanted to be part of something big, to have an impact and be remembered. When he was a young man, he met Linda, they married soon after and had two sons. Willy worked hard his whole life as a salesman. Though he was not always successful, he never gave up trying. He was a loving husband and father who always put his family first.
Willy Loman was a good man who tried his best. We will all miss him dearly. Thank you for being here today to remember my father with me.
We are gathered here today to honor the life of Willy Loman. Willy passed away at the age of 60, leaving behind his wife Linda and two sons, Happy and Biff. Willy was born in New York City on September 15th, 1915. He was always a dreamer, wanting to be part of something bigger and make a lasting impact. When he met Linda, he knew he had found his match. They married soon after and had two beautiful sons. Willy worked hard his whole life as a salesman but was never truly successful. However, he never gave up trying. He was always a loving husband and father who put his family first.
Willy was never the type to cower in fear. However, he was the one to soothe others’ nerves during turbulent times. He was always pursuing his goals of riches and acclaim. He instilled in me a sense of gratitude for everything I have. Especially for my father’s encouragement to be bold and fearless in the face of adversity. I’m not sure what I’d be like if it weren’t for my dad encouraging me to be brave and unafraid to overcome obstacles.
Eulogies are supposed to be given in times of sorrow, at funerals and other dark moments. But I believe that it’s important to give eulogies in times of happiness as well. Eulogies are a way to remember the good moments, and to keep those memories alive.
Willy Loman was many things to many people. He was a husband, a father, a son, a brother, and a friend. Willy was a man who always strived for success. He was hardworking and determined, but he was also flawed. Willy was human. And it is because of his humanity that we loved him so much.
Willy taught me many things: the importance of family, the importance of dreaming big, and the importance of never giving up.
