Legacy/Obituary if I decide on this alternative:

The Oslo Daily
Hans – 114 years old.
Hans passed away today at age 114.  He was born in Fredrikstad in 1971.  He graduated from Lund University in Sweden in 1996 and worked two years abroad, before he came back and settled in Oslo as a businessman.  In his early thirties, he started several companies in what was then called the Internet sector.  He published three internationally famous books about life planning.  In 2007 he re-launched the classical liberal business magazine Farmand that, to this day, is perhaps regarded as the premier Norwegian business magazine.  He remained publisher of Farmand until he retired at age 89.  During the last 40 years of his life, he spent a large part of the winters in his home in Provence, France.  Three children, six grandchildren, and nine great-grand children survive him.
