Bryan Bellace, 23, was wearing a shirt with the Bruce Bellace Plumbing and Heating logo as he peed on the memorial to 9-year-old Christian Clopp in a Mays Landing playground after placing a beer can on the ground.

The father of Christian Clopp has accepted the apology.

The red-faced dad was referring to Snapchat video showing Bryan Bellace allegedly urinating on a memorial in Mays Landing for Christian Clopp, who died in February 2012 from a brain tumor.

A New Jersey man who was filmed grinning as he urinated on a memorial to a dead child has been fired by his boss-who happens to be his father.

Cops say Flippen recorded Bellace urinating on the memorial and was charged with having an open alcoholic beverage in a park.

A man caught on camera urinating on a memorial at a park in Mays Landing for a little boy who died from cancer was sacked from his family business on Monday.

"I admit, my initial reaction was to find you and beat you senseless in defense of my son's honor and the distress you caused my family", Mark wrote on Facebook. "Let's move on and turn it into something positive", Clopp said. "When I came to my senses the next day, I realized I made a huge mistake".

"It was a big mistake I made", Bellace told the TV station in a phone interview. "A friend of ours came over today to inform us that a video was posted of two scumbags urinating on Christian's memorial at his playground". His friend, Daniel Flippen, 23, who shot the video, was also charged with carrying open alcohol publicly.

"Christian was a child who represented everything that was right". He told ABC News he was drunk and "didn't know what I was doing".

'I wish I could take it all back and make things right, but it happened'. "May your memory and inspiration live on forever". Clopp's father said that it was, "once again", his 9-year-old son who brought the community together.
