Family pens scathing obituary for man with 'no redeeming qualities'

Leslie Ray Charping of Galveston, Texas, tragically passed away last month at the age of 75 after a long fight with cancer.

But if the scathing obituary his family penned in his remembrance is to be believed, it's possible his death wasn't so tragic after all.

"Leslie Ray "Popeye" Charping was born in Galveston on November 20, 1942 and passed away January 30, 2017, which was 29 years longer than expected and much longer than he deserved," the shocking obit begins.

"Leslie battled with cancer in his latter years and lost his battle, ultimately due to being the horses ass he was known for."

From there, it only gets worse:

At a young age, Leslie quickly became a model example of bad parenting combined with mental illness and a complete commitment to drinking, drugs, womanizing and being generally offensive. Leslie enlisted to serve in the Navy, but not so much in a brave & patriotic way but more as part of a plea deal to escape sentencing on criminal charges.

Feel lucky you never met him yet?

Just wait, there's more:

Leslie was surprisingly intelligent, however he lacked ambition and motivation to do anything more than being reckless, wasteful, squandering the family savings and fantasizing about get rich quick schemes. Leslie's hobbies included being abusive to his family, expediting trips to heaven for the beloved family pets and fishing, which he was less skilled with than the previously mentioned.

No really, don't hold back.

Leslie's life served no other obvious purpose, he did not contribute to society or serve his community and he possessed no redeeming qualities besides quick whited sarcasm which was amusing during his sober days. With Leslie's passing he will be missed only for what he never did; being a loving husband, father and good friend. No services will be held, there will be no prayers for eternal peace and no apologizes to the family he tortured. Leslie's remains will be cremated and kept in the barn until "Ray", the family donkey's wood shavings run out. Leslie's passing proves that evil does in fact die and hopefully marks a time of healing and safety for all.

Yikes.

To be honest, that's kind of a low blow — even for someone who is already six feet under.
