He is wide awake. Some people who have returned from death say that "death" is like waking up.

I tend to use "kicked the bucket" or "bought the big one" or "went on to a far better place" ( my personal favorite).

W.C. Fields tombstone:
All things considered, I'd rather be living in Philadelphia.

Proposed tombstone for Beethoven:
Decomposing.

When Mel Blanc, the great animated cartoon voice artist died, Warner took out an ad in Billboard, which showed all the characters he'd voiced, Bugs Bunny, Yosemite Sam, Sylvester the cat, Elmer Fudd, Porky Pig, and on and on, gathered around his grave, and the one word caption was "Speechless"

David, there are half a dozen different versions of Fields' epitaph online, none of them yours, but then that's conservatism for you--inventing an imaginary past and thinking it's real.

Here's a version of the "Speechless" epitaph--my memory wasn't any better than David's:

Mel Blanc's tombstone epitaph reprises the famous line his characters ended all the Warner cartoons with"
"That's all, folks"

History is not defined by what is on the Internet.
He was filmed commenting on that, while remaining alive.
That was broadcast on TV.

I 've not seen his actual gravestone.

Or as Dave Carter might say, "Welcome to Texas underground":

one sunday morning i was sleepin' on the sofa
had me a crazy dream
i met the devil in broad daylight
just outta abilene
he took me down a hole where the lost souls go
looked around and what did i see
but millionaires and prickly pears
this is what he said to me

welcome to texas underground
we got a barbeque all year 'round
smokin' little band with a country sound
we like to have a little fun

so pull up a chair, you can chew on the fat
gets a might dry, but we like it like that
dance with the lady in the stetson hat
welcome to texas, son

he took me over to hell's rodeo hoppin' in his hobnail boots
109 cow punchers in a line, widowmakers waitin' in the chutes
the rodeo clown had a scorpion's tail, appeared in a puff of smoke
armadillo ears and horns like a steer, these are the words he spoke

welcome to texas underground
we got a barbeque all year 'round
red-hot band with a country sound
mister, they're the real mccoy
so pull up a chair, you can chew on the fat
gets a might dry, but we like it like that
dance with the lady in the stetson hat
welcome to texas, boy

in a little while they opened up the gate, and who do you think walked in
it was the prettiest lady that i ever did see, wearin nothin but a grin
they gave her a vest, a red satin dress, matchin boots and silver spurs
she walked by, she looked me in the eye, this is what i said to her:

welcome to texas underground
we got a barbeque all year 'round
funky little band with a country sound
ready for an all-night jam

so pull up a chair, you can chew on the fat
gets a might dry, but we like it like that
dance with the feller in the stetson hat
welcome to texas, ma'am

down come a shipment of used car salesmen smilin' like rattlesnakes
every politician in the whole blame country claimin' there was some mistake
lawyers and thieves and state police, gentlement of the press
cons and flunkies, slackers, junkies, agents of the irs

welcome to texas underground
we got a barbeque all year 'round
plenty of country singers around
bound to have ourselves a ball

so pull up a chair, you can chew on the fat
gets a might dry, but we like it like that
dance with the devil in a stetson hat
welcome to texas, y'all
