A Galveston man’s obituary is getting a lot of attention. It’s what his family wrote about him that is raising eyebrows.
His family members apparently did not like him very much, and they wrote an obit that reflected that.
“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. Leslie battled with cancer in his latter [sic] years and lost his battle, ultimately due to being the horses [sic] ass he was known for.”
The obit goes on to call out his apparent lackluster parenting skills and questionable past: “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 and patriotic way but more as part of a plea deal to escape sentencing on criminal charges.”
As for memorial services, well, there won’t be any….
