A man who does not pay child support and/or maintain regular contact with his children. Or a bum who, though still sleeping with the mother, does nothing to contribute to the household either financially or by taking care of the home/children. Often an abusive man or an addict. Always lazy and self absorbed.
My mother had to garnish my dead beat dad's paycheck, but we still never hear from him.
