Man's dueling obituaries name wife in 1, girlfriend in other

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Two versions of a New Jersey man's obituary have appeared together in a newspaper — one saying he's survived by his wife, and the other saying he's survived by his girlfriend.

Both obituaries in the Press of Atlantic City agree that Leroy Bill Black, of Egg Harbor Township, died Tuesday of lung cancer caused by fiberglass exposure.

However, the obituary with top billing says he's survived by his "loving wife" and a son. The second announcement, right beneath the first one with the same photo of Black, says he's survived by his son, a host of siblings and his long-time girlfriend.

A person who answered the phone at Greenidge Funeral Home, which is handling arrangements, wouldn't comment on the two obituaries and would only say the funeral home works at the discretion of the wife.
