A brutally honest obituary for a "negligent" former New York cop states " evil does eventually die."

When I'm not writing for Hudson Valley Post I anchor the news during the morning show on WPDH. My newscasts are a mixture of Hudson Valley stories, national news and wild/funny stories.

As the News Director, it's my duty to report on tragedies, crime, politics, COVID, and more. But my favorite part of my on-air job is finding and reporting on wild stories going on around the world. Every day there is something crazy to report on.

For example, today I reported on a boyfriend who was shocked to learn his girlfriend puts her used socks in her mouth and an elected official from California who was caught looking at porn on a computer at a public library.

While searching for some stories to report on I came across an obituary of a former New York police officer that's going viral.

"Lawrence H Pfaff Sr. passed away on June 27, 2022, living a long life, much longer than he deserved. He is survived by his three children, no four. Oops, five children," the obituary for Pfaff states. " His love was abundant when it came to himself, but for his children it was limited. From a young age, he was a ladies' man and an abusive alcoholic, solidifying his commitment to both with the path of destruction he left behind, damaging his adult children, and leaving them broken."

Pfaff From Belmont, New York Worked For NYPD

Pfaff was born in Belmont, New York in 1941. He spent over 20 years with the NYPD, according to his obituary.

"Lawrence, Sr. did spend over 20 years in the NYPD, but even his time in service was negligent at best. Because of his alcohol addiction, his Commanding Officer took away his gun and badge, replacing them with a broom until he could get his act together," the obituary reads.

Son Wrote Obit

Lawrence Pfaff Jr., is responsible for the obituary, according to NBC News.

"It will be challenging to miss Lawrence, Sr. because he was narcissistic. He was incapable of love. Lawrence, Sr.'s passing proves that evil does eventually die, and it marks a time of healing, which will allow his children to get the closure they deserve. Lawrence, Sr. can be remembered for being a father to many, and a dad to none," Pfaff Jr., concludes in his father's obituary.

Pfaff Jr. told NBC writing the obituary was his way of healing from his childhood trauma.

The New York man's obituary is now getting attention from across the globe. The Daily Mail, a website based in the UK, even wrote about the brutally honest obituary.

The newspaper that published the obituary has since apologized for publishing it, according to First Coast News.
