Today, despite all my begging for him to at least be civil, my son started his eulogy at his dad's funeral with the words, “Let me tell you a few things about the bastard in the coffin over there.” It only got worse. FML

The funeral isn't for the dead person, they're dead and don't care one way or the other. The funeral is for the family to have closure. If this is the way your son gains closure for having a shitty father, why are you defending a dead person who didn't do enough in life to deserve his son's respect?

It sounds a bit like there was bad blood between father and son, if he had anecdotes to support this there may be a reason he disliked him. You could of course have not let him give the eulogy.

why are you assuming the father was shitty? could just as easily be a shitty son who's unable bro show restraint in a situation that calls for it. he didn't have to deliver the eulogy.

People develop their own personalities. Some of the nicest people I know came from the most unpleasant people for parents. It can be reversed too. People need to take responsibility for themselves.

If you knew he might possibly be this way during his eulogy, why did you let him give one? Clearly if you had to beg him to be civil to his own father then you probably knew their relationship was not a positive one. Sorry for your loss, OP.
