Lawrence Pfaff Jr, of Jacksonville, Florida, penned the scathing piece about his father Lawrence Pfaff Sr, who passed away at the age of 81 on June 27.
Pfaff Jr revealed that he wrote the obituary a year before his father, who was from New York, died.
He claimed that former NYPD cop Pfaff Sr “damaged” his adult children.
In the obit, he alleged: “His love was abundant when it came to himself.”
Pfaff Jr said it would be “challenging” to miss his father as he accused him of being narcissistic.
He claimed that his late father was “incapable of love”.

Lawrence Jr told News4Jax that he wrote the obituary in order to help him heal.
He said that he has been doing a lot of soul searching.
