Saul Shuller's obituary reveals the man was many things.
The Cincinnati native, who died Sunday at the age of 95, was a restaurateur (his family owned a popular eatery for eight decades) and a musician (he played piano with Irving Berlin at a USO show while serving in the South Pacific.)
He was a scholar (he quoted Shakespeare from his deathbed) and a storyteller. (Said his daughter Barbara: "You couldn't ask him a question and get a one-word answer. He'd say, 'Let me tell you a story about that.'")
And, finally, he was known as the family comedian and a long-suffering Bengals fan. So it may come as no surprise that on his deathbed, Shuller admitted there was one positive to his impending demise.
From his obit: "Accepting that the end was near, the funny grandfather and great-grandfather said earlier in the day there was an upside to death: at least he wouldn't have to watch another Bengals loss."
