Man's obituary: 'His life served no obvious purpose'

GALVESTON, Texas -- Ouch! The family of a 75-year-old Texas man took off the gloves and delivered a brutal, yet honest obituary.

Leslie Ray Charping died last month after a battle with cancer.

"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 stated.

The family went on to describe Charping as a person who lacked ambition and motivation.

"With Leslie's passing he will be missed only for what he never did; being a loving husband, father and good friend," the family said.

And no, the family did not hold a funeral service.

"Leslie's passing proves that evil does in fact die and hopefully marks a time of healing and safety for all," the obituary read.
