Family Writes Honest Obituary For 'Evil' Relative

A family pulled no punches in a Texas man's obituary, writing that they are "relieved" that their "evil" relative is gone.

According to the New York Post, Leslie Ray Charping of Houston, Texas, passed away at the age of 75. Charping's family wrote a brutally honest obituary following his death, in which they described him as "evil."

The obituary says that Charping "leaves behind two relieved children," as well as "countless other victims including an ex wife, relatives, friends, neighbors, doctors, nurses, and random strangers."

Family members wrote that the man lived "29 years longer than expected and much longer than he deserved."

According to the Palm Beach Post, Charping was a veteran and a former Navy boxing champion.

"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," the obituary reads.

The obituary, which was shared on the Carnes Funeral Home website, continues to describe Leslie's hobbies, which 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."

"Leslie's life served no other purpose, he did not contribute to society or serve his community and he possessed no redeeming qualities," the obituary continues.

According to the Palm Beach Post, police records show that Charping was arrested several times throughout his life. In 1979, he faced his first conviction, in which he pleaded guilty to assault.

In 2008, Leslie also pleaded guilty to assault after he reportedly poured hot liquid on his ex-wife, whom he was married to for 40 years. The following year, he pleaded guilty to violating his restraining order by calling another family member and threatening to kill her.

The obituary concluded, "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 apologies to the family he tortured. Leslie's remains will be cremated and kept in the barn until the family's 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."
