  • Sep 22, 2021 I like this. Not everyone lives a praiseworthy life and some people out and out ruined the lives of those around them. It’s refreshing to see the usual cliches gone See ya
  • Sep 14, 2021 Nasty comments after someone has died is a reprehensible act. Melanie
  • Sep 11, 2021 Leslie\'s ghost,

    Tick tock. Tick tock.

    Where are you Cupcake? I\'m bored.
  • Sep 11, 2021 I\'m waiting, Mr. Cry-Baby-Pee-Pants. I\'ll give your crack spy network team a head start, I\'m in central Florida. I\'m waiting Cry-Baby-Pee-Pants. Dutch
  • Sep 11, 2021 ... Super-duper-secret spy network to track people down via their IP address? I think not, but just in case, let me throw out a challenge to you Cupcake. Have them find me, and you bring me your Navy SEAL, top sniper, Marine Corps commanding, spy network leading self and do your best. Dutch
  • Sep 11, 2021 Leslie\'s ghost,

    This is way to tempting to pass up.

    Navy SEAL? No. You are not.

    Top sniper in the United States military? No. You are not.

    Have the US Marine Corps at your disposal? No. You do not.

    Able to kill someone in over 700 different ways? Just like you, laughable.

  • Jul 3, 2021 Good riddance. If he wanted to be remembered fondly in death, he shouldn’t have been an asshole in his life. ashley
  • Jul 2, 2021 I just realized Mr. Charping was born on the same day as our President Joe Biden. Anonymous
  • Jun 26, 2021 If Leslie was mentally ill, how cruel and heartless must be her ingrate daughter to pen such a offensive obituary. Or is sympathy for mental illnesses should be reserved only for women or saints? Unknown stranger offended by callous tribute

  • May 8, 2021 Glad the bitch is dead Kay hall
  • Apr 14, 2021 Good \'Ole Ray must have had a keen sense of humor and wrote his own obituary prior to his death to leave everyone laughing instead of crying. My husband tried to read me this obituary and he could not finish it without breaking out laughing. I can see my husband doing something similar. RIP Ray. Georgia Girl
  • Mar 24, 2021 He was a better man than I\'ll ever be. Yes, we stole an election, but Leslie was a boxing champ! Sleepy Joe Biden
  • Dec 28, 2020 I am so glad you are free from him. And so sorry for he what he put you through. Alison
  • Nov 13, 2020 Rip Spinach

  • Nov 9, 2020 He must be my Long lost American Cousin. Fred West
  • Jul 21, 2020 I love this. Completely justified, understandable and appropriate.
    Many more families of these types should provide this exact type of public testimony. Very healing.

  • Jul 8, 2019 I read this twice a month. It\'s such a profound comfort to read such honestly. I cannot thank you enough. May we all find healing from the results of addiction, mental illness and abuse, starting with shamelessly telling the truth. Barbara H
  • Jun 26, 2019 Why did they go to the trouble cremating the body? Was there no hog pen suitable for disposal? Kev
  • May 20, 2019 I am extremely proud of you for your honesty and bravery. May all of God\'s blessings be upon you and your whole family! Karen
  • Apr 19, 2019 I have an ex, and father to my child that is surely related to the devil himself. Abuse is the definition of this person’s name. He is nothing short of pure evil. I wish you peace Sheila- at last. One day our family will have peace too. JP
  • Apr 18, 2019 Greatness! Heather
  • Apr 1, 2019 Thank you for writing the truth in your obituary for your abusive father. I have a father like yours, and I think the truth needs to be heard. People who get offended by this must have very wonderful life/parents, and would not understand the meaning of this. I thank you. Thankful
  • Feb 8, 2019 Getting real sick of your shit Charles! Mommy dearest
  • Feb 1, 2019 Stay the fuck out my house Jesus Christ
  • Jan 30, 2019 Shelia - I\'m sorry you didn\'t have the kind of father that would be missed. I\'m sorry you had a lifetime of torment and abuse. I hope that in the future you will be able to live a peaceful loving life and not take any of his traits with you. We are promised a future world of peace and happiness from our loving father one who will never torment us, abandon us or abuse us. He is the only father we can count on in good times and bad times. Please draw comfort from 2 Cor 1: 3, 4. JW.ORG
  • Nov 21, 2018 Another birthday passed without mention of you and all I could think is how do people sleep at night knowing that somewhere a child cries themselves to sleep because of someone like you. The only proof that you even existed is the shocking truth, a book and bad memories. Shiela
  • Nov 13, 2018 Bless him John
  • Oct 29, 2018 Leslie\'s ghost, you can\'t be any worse than he was and don\'t think I didn\'t learn how to defend myself. So go to hell and tell him how well I\'m doing without him when you get there. Go suck it! Leslie\'s Daughter
  • Oct 28, 2018 Get rekt Leslie Anon
  • Oct 28, 2018 What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I\'ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I\'ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I\'m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You\'re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that\'s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little \"clever\" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn\'t, you didn\'t, and now you\'re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You\'re fucking dead, kiddo. Leslie\'s ghost

  • Jul 11, 2018 Obviously he was a horses ass. Just because you die doesn\'t mean you were any less a horses ass. The secret is to change your ways and apologize before you hit the dirt. Nothing wrong with his kids telling it like it really was.. I can relate! Mrs. Taylor
  • Jul 8, 2018 I have a husband who is abusive and I pray that God brings me home soon to relieve me from this psychotic maniac Dusty
  • Jun 13, 2018 Rebecca, you\'re saying that it\'s ok to torment/murder/steal and harm people just because you have mental illness? Wow, you\'re a special kind of messed up. Leslie\'s daughter
  • Jun 13, 2018 The obituary said he was mentally ill. Mentally ill people cannot always control their behavior. Rebecca
  • Jun 13, 2018 I appreciate your bravery in your honest truth. We are pressured to sugar coat impact of people in our lives—when they’ve hurt us, we somehow believe that the end of their life changes that and it does not. This is a genuine reminder to us who are still fortunate to live another day: our actions matter. What we say matters. How we act towards others matters. If you have trauma that impacts how you treat others, work with your pain to change your behavior. Don’t be a butt. Julia
  • Jun 12, 2018 My father is accountable for his actions, whether he\'s alive or not. This is an argument you will never win! Read the book, Brutal Obituary. This will fill in the blanks and enlighten those who can\'t see past themselves to understand. Leslie\'s Daughter
  • Jun 12, 2018 Well said Shelia! Unless you\'ve lived it, you can\'t truly know how it feels. My father is also a horrible human being and I will find much relief on the day of his death. I have made my peace with my childhood and moved on but he definitely does not deserve my forgiveness. TLT
  • Jun 12, 2018 JH-STFU! You have no idea what you\'re talking about. Trying living it, then get back to me with how well that went for you. Leslie\'s Daughter
  • Jun 12, 2018 For the people who cant wait for their \"whatever\" to die, so they will be \"happy\" or write a poison o-bit. Why not just talk to that person, get it off your chest with them while they are living? surely thats better, as the living will hear you, the dead will not. JH

  • Jun 6, 2018 Leslie had one redeeming quality, you.
    Growing up in similar conditions we tend to lack emotional maturity ourselves. We didn\'t have a loving, nurturing beginning that we saw others get. But we can heal. We can release the hate and resentment and fill that spot with love and happiness. Pray for him, he sounds like a tormented soul. Take care of yourself by seeking the high road. Do not let the past ruin your present.
    With love to all.
    Dan C
  • Jun 6, 2018 May you Rest in Peace. Hope
  • Jun 6, 2018 I love it. Totally refreshing to see an honest send off. I\'m waiting for my sperm donor/father to drop off the planet....he\'s had too many free years. Healing begins when the monster is vanquished. sisters in crappy parents
  • Jun 6, 2018 If you have any question about the justification of my father\'s obituary, please read the book \"Brutal Obituary\". I think this will help even the ignorant people like my father to understand how this has evolved. Please don\'t read this as an apology, just an explanation; Read the book if you dare. Daughter-Shiela Smith
  • Jun 5, 2018 Everyone here who speaks badly of the woman who wrote this obit, is probably just like her dad. Why else would you defend a man like this? Defensiveness says a lot. Also...Hey Linda, how delusional are you?! Bad parenting isn’t a choice?! BAHAHA I hope to God that a person who refuses to take responsibility and who won’t acknowledge free will doesn’t have kids of their own. “I couldn’t help it cause I was an addict and was mental ill so I had to be a bad parent and an abusive tyrant”....really Linda? That is NO EXCUSE and doesn’t hold up (ask a judge or a lawyer if excuses hold up). People aren’t stupid and they know if they’re horrible and abusive regardless of addiction and mental illness. This man HAD THE CHOICE to leave his family, they would have been better off obviously. He chose not to because people like this are sadistic and love torturing others. Get your head out of whatever alternate reality you live in Linda. And if you’re defensive reading this, then ask your self why....Are you making excuses for your behavior and not taking responsibility for how you act maybe? Reality
  • Jun 5, 2018 Spicy! Well written and humorous to boot. I hope it was cathartic for whoever wrote it. To Leslie: you made a mess of this one, my guy. Better luck in the hereafter. Shark Dodger
  • Feb 13, 2018 This is the exact same obituary I would I would have written for my own father except I would have to add child molestation and rape. Tms

  • Jul 8, 2017 Best day of my life when I heard my ex and daughters father was found dead. Amen healing begins Anna
  • Jun 25, 2017 Fuck forgiveness. These people do not have a clue nor care about the trauma and damage they have done to others. They destroy their own children's lives without a care in the world. Just as my father did to me.

  • Jun 8, 2017 Message well done!! Anyone who's ever been in that situation throughout their ENTIRE life understands!! To those who haven't, thank your parents! Sarah
  • May 18, 2017 Please, please learn to forgive. If not for him, then for you. Our dear Lord said: 'Forgive us our debts AS WE forgive others". If we cannot forgive, don't look for God to forgive you. Obviously there is some serious hurt here. I will pray that time will ease that hurt and that you can move on. Jeannette
  • May 8, 2017 Leslie suffered from "bad parenting, mental illness, addiction, and cancer" Not a choice, I am sure. At least he had reasons for his bad behavior.
    What is the excuse of this author for such lack of compassion or empathy? For downright mean spirited and cruel judgements.
  • May 6, 2017 wow-Leslie Ray sounds like my ex-I will have to keep this obit in mind if my ex dies before me. old lady n a shew
  • May 2, 2017 Kay, give it a rest! You're over the top! Lisa
  • Apr 13, 2017 Thank you for your obit. I am currently awaiting the death of my 80 year old father who continues torturing my 75 year old mother. If you haven't lived it, you can never understand.

  • Mar 2, 2017 Leslie, you seem like my kind of guy. You made a YUGE impact on everyone around you and you didn't care if other people got hurt in the process. That takes a lack of compassion. I've raped, pillaged, and generally been a dick my entire life and I can tell you that it feels so good. See u in hell-DJT Donald J. Trump

  • Feb 27, 2017 I can't describe to you the great admiration I feel for you having written this. It is the sort of obituary my own parent has been working on earning for many, many years, and will surely continue to earn until that time comes. The people who do not understand this are profoundly fortunate. I wish you nothing but the best. Alex
  • Feb 27, 2017 Remember, nobody is truly worthless, they can always serve as a bad example. I hope you find healing and release. Thom
  • Feb 27, 2017 I wish love, peace and healing for you and your family. Kenya
  • Feb 27, 2017 Love your family, find peace with him. He was suffering from mental illness, likely borderline personality disorder and manic depression. He was suffering and broken inside, likely the product of abuse too in some way. Find peace. Find forgiveness. Please I beg you. Find Peace
  • Feb 26, 2017 May your healing begin. May you find peace with the past and possibly love for someone as tortured as your father. Please keep in mind this type of behavior is generational. May that cycle stop with his death. Elaine
  • Feb 26, 2017 You need to know that God as Father is not like your father was at all--God loves. I pray you were able to "mentally adopt" some healthy role model earlier in life. We never know the hidden pain and damage that goes on in families. Sadly, usually it forms a cycle..... I pray not for you all. Mark
  • Feb 26, 2017 Keep casting stones. The writer of this obituary will truly reap what they sow! Gary
  • Feb 26, 2017 Amen sister! I too have grown up as the child of a self centered and cruel father. I am still waiting for his demise. He is over 85 years old so it is coming soon. You have shown us all that it is OK to NOT love a cruel parent! Joy
  • Feb 25, 2017 I'm sorry for your loss- the loss of a good father which you deserved & did not get. You do have a father in Jesus and you remain in my prayers. May this time relieve you of the pain knowing this person can never hurt you again. Friend
  • Feb 25, 2017 Shiela -- It would have been okay for you to post this obituary if you had only left out the comment about being embarrassed by your dad's psychiatric hospitalization. Many years ago, I also briefly was hospitalized in this type of hospital too, but I was never anything like your dad appeared to be Kay
  • Feb 25, 2017 Despite the fact that I feel like you, Leslie and Shiela, stigmatized me for your unkind comment about people who have been in a mental hospital before, I still feel bad for you for what you had to endure at the hands of your unkind father. He will have to answer to God for how he has treated you. Kay
  • Feb 25, 2017 As a former patient in a psychiatric hospital myself, I can assure you that not all of the patients in psychiatric hospitals are bad people like this deceased man appeared to be. I wish that everyone, including some of the politicians in my state of Florida, would acknowledge that. Kay
  • Feb 25, 2017 Sending healing thoughts your way. Move on and enjoy the rest of your life- happiness is the best revenge! Friend
  • Feb 24, 2017 There is good and bad in all of us -- in the end we will get what we deserve - I will not judge Ray. I have written many obituaries and really enjoyed this one. LJV

  • Feb 24, 2017 You are no better than the person you claim here to be. Even convinced murderers and pedophiles get better things said about them than you did. I pray someone doesn't treat your death like you did this one. Kansas
  • Feb 24, 2017 Never speak ill of the dead. Godsrighthandman
  • Feb 24, 2017 I am sorry for your loss and sad that a human life had no redeeming qualities for his family. Though I believe there is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But who are we to judge? ...for none of us are sinless. A Texan
  • Feb 23, 2017 I applaud your courage. I hope you inspire others to expose the abuses they live with daily. You made my day! NN
  • Feb 23, 2017 I applaud your courage. I hope you inspire others to expose the abuses they live with daily. You made my day! NN
  • Feb 23, 2017 Many years ago, I was briefly hospitalized in a psychiatric hospital too. However, I never was abusive toward any person or any animal, and I've never had evil in my heart.

    Your father will have to answer to God for his sins on Earth. So just put it behind you and move on with your life.
  • Feb 22, 2017 I do pray now you will be able to move on. No matter what you must forgive. Otherwise you too will rot away in bitterness. I do feel you are better than that. May God Bless you my dear. Pat B
  • Feb 22, 2017 Those who have lived this abuse knows what this is like. I trust that you find peace and comfort as the family moves forward.

    He is safely in our Father's house below.

  • Feb 21, 2017 Many hugs to your family and my condolences for what you all endured. Celeste
  • Feb 21, 2017 I hope the family can someday let go of their anger and hatred. It is wasted energy. The man is gone...try to put it all behind you and look to the future. Life is short. Even with all his faults, he was a child of God. And he will have to answer to God for the sins of his life. God bless your family. Chris
  • Feb 20, 2017 Amen! Our family suffered like your Family! May God give you His strength to find His Peace! Mark
  • Feb 20, 2017 A frenzied lynch mob is out for a man who is already dead. I wonder how many people commenting here ever knew him personally. I'm not excusing whatever he may or may not have done, but what might cause a person to do those things? Everyone has their demons

  • Feb 20, 2017 I completely understand this. I, too, am a child of someone just like this. I will suffer PTSD until my death because of them. Thank you for your strength to speak truth. My prayers to you and the other survivors. Same shoes, different mile

  • Feb 18, 2017 Your raw honesty is truly refreshing. CC
  • Feb 18, 2017 Truth is, you reap what you sow, sounds like your dad didn't sow those seeds of love. I'm truly sorry for the loss of your father, although it sounds like you lost him years and years ago. Go forth in peace and love❤ Lola
  • Feb 17, 2017 I have no doubt that you will heal beyond the pain that he inflicted. I think your obit was a touching reminder to all that there are people suffering under people like Leslie, my father and ex-husband being two more. God Bless your family and I know He is, and always will be, with you. TML
  • Feb 17, 2017 I hope that you're all able to heal and move forward with your lives in comfort, peace, and love. The relief you're experiencing right now might feel somewhat conflicted (I know from personal experience) but with time, old wounds do heal, at least somewhat. I wish you all the best. Alison
  • Feb 17, 2017 Well done. When my Evil Stepfather moved on we didn't bother with any obit. But it might have been cathartic. Now if I may, I suggest moving on and focusing on being better than he was. I focus on being a good father. That defines my life. All the Best! JS

  • Feb 17, 2017 You have my condolences. Both for the having shared a life of regret and bitterness and for the passing of a man who created you. However, it seems the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Perhaps you can move on and relieve yourself of the vile bitterness that runs through your family. Prayers. Minn
  • Feb 17, 2017 Bravo for telling the truth. My father was just as bad, but got away with a nice memorial from a family in denial. Hope you have some piece now. Michael S - CA
  • Feb 16, 2017 Savage Level 101% Mr. Person
  • Feb 16, 2017 Kudos to the author of this. My own so-called father is a no-good like this man apparently was, and it will be my distinct honor and pleasure to write a similar send-off for him a few years from now. Thank you for this! Terry W - MO
