A deceased Texan’s loved ones composed an intense and vicious obituary regarding the departed 75-year-old and his questionable life, crafting what they considered a completely sincere farewell that the family suggested he had come.
Carnes Funeral Home’s web page had declared that mid 70 years old, Leslie Ray Charping, passed away last month after relinquishing his battle against cancer. The obituary also included that he had departed “29 years longer than expected and much longer than he deserved”.
The stinging obit mentioned that “He leaves behind [two] relieved children; a son Leslie Roy Charping and daughter, Shiela Smith along with six grandchildren and countless other victims, including an ex-wife, relatives, friends, neighbors, doctors, nurses and random strangers,”.
A recollection of Charping’s years according to the family suggested that he was psychologically disturbed, had proved to be an abusive father, was seriously into the misuse of multiple substances. They did include a section about how he was a veteran of the Navy but then appended that was done “part of a plea deal to escape criminal charges.”
“[Charping] did not contribute to society or serve his community…possessed no redeeming qualities…[had] sarcasm which was amusing during his sober days,” the eulogy read. “With Leslie’s passing he will be missed only for what he never did; being a loving husband, father and good friend.”
The Galveston man would be cremated and given no funeral remembrance gathering.
“Leslie’s passing proves that evil does in fact die and hopefully marks a time of healing and safety for all.” the obituary expressed, and it included that his ashes may be “kept in the barn until ‘Ray,’ the family donkey’s wood shavings run out,”
Despite the fact that the funeral home removed the obituary from its website, a backup document of the writing was able to be discovered.
The obituary received dislike by a good number of viewers, who portrayed their displeasure that Charping’s obituary functioned as a blemish on the individual’s memory.
“This family should be ashamed!!! How dare you judge another. We are all flawed … You guys are really flawed,” someone stated.
A different individual posted, “Maybe instead of publishing a list of his faults and failures they could honor him by volunteering in mental health awareness projects or with Big Brother and Big Sisters or with the children in the numerous domestic abuse shelters across our state,” Instead of offering my condolences to Roy and Shiela, I offer my pity for their equally sad conduct … which may be worse because I’m assuming they aren’t mentally ill.”
Although many still asserted that the man definitely deserved the harsh remembrance. “I am not sorry for telling the truth and I am not sorry for standing up for myself,” a lady who announced she was his child said, informing KTRK what she thought of the raw obit.
