In what feels like an episode of The Twilight Zone, the real mayor who was parodied by the fake mayor sends his condolences to the family of the anonymous man behind the Fake Lloyd Winnecke Twitter account after his wife announced his passing on Thursday after battling a long-term illness.

The creator of the account passed away sometime late-Wednesday / early Thursday after falling ill six weeks ago. His wife, who referred to herself as, "Mrs. Fake Mayor", announced her husband's passing through a series of tweets late Thursday morning.
