2 Chronicles 28:1 So, What Happened?

2 Chronicles 28:1 (KJV)
Ahaz was twenty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem: but he did not that which was right in the sight of the LORD, like David his father:

Ahaz was arguably the most wicked of the kings of Judah, certainly among the most sinful. Interestingly his father, Jotham, was a good king, and so was his son, Hezekiah. 

So, what happened?

I understand this is speculation, but it is supported in scripture. Jotham did what was right in the sight of the Lord except that he would not go to the Temple of the Lord. 

Uzziah, his father, had been judged at the Temple. He assumed to burn incense, a duty belonging only to the priests. The priests withstood him. When he became angry at the priests, God smote him with leprosy. Jotham didn’t hold it against God (at least not publicly), but he did hold it against the house of God. As much as he did right otherwise, he did not get this right. 

I think it showed up in his son.
