Elvis Presley lived in this earth a total of 15,561 days, from the 8th of January 1935 to the 16th of August 1977. If we take this number of days and add them to the date Elvis left us physically then the date that comes out is... yes, you guessed it, Tuesday 24th of March 2020!
So when tomorrow is gone, more days will have gone by than the exact number of days Elvis Presley experiences the wonderful experience that is LIFE.
But he lives on in our minds and hearts, doesn’t he? They say no one is dead until he is forgotten and as far as I’m concerned he will be alive as long as I live!
In his reflection we see ourselves, he is the soundtrack of our lives!
If I can offer a bit of a summary:
Using a time and date calculator when calculating whole dates between Jan 8/35 and Aug 16/77 results in 15,562 days.
That same calculator adding 15,562 days to Aug 16/77 results in a March 25, 2020 date.
Once March 25th is complete at midnight CST he will have been gone longer than he lived - counting whole days.
For my time zone, PST, that is 10pm on Wednesday, March 25th
Not knowing his time of death makes any calculation using time of day inaccurate but, we can be close.
He was born at 4:35am so his first day is 19.4 hours long. We don’t know the actual time he died but, if we were to guess at 10am his last day would have been 10 hours long.
Taking this into account means he lived 15,560 whole days and 5.4 hours into his 15,561st day.
This would mean at 5:26am CST on March 24th he will have been gone longer than he lived. For my time zone, PST, that is 3:26am.
But, not knowing his actual time of death this calculation is not accurate and could be off by up to 4.5 hours.
So your choice;
- March 25 at 11:59pm CST (this is counting whole days, no “time of day” included.
- March 24 at 5:26am CST (includes birth time and estimated time of death at 10am CST Aug 16,1977.)
- March 24 between 4:54am CST and 9:54am CST. (This takes into account the last time he was seen alive and the time he was discovered)
- March 24 at 10:54 CST (taking into account the time he was pronounced dead)
Whichever way you look at it he died far too young.
