Of Fathers and Sons

In America we approach the day when fatherhood is celebrated.  This has
me reflecting upon the relationships between fathers and sons found in
the text.  With the notable exception of David and Solomon there seems
to be a pattern where the father is faithful but the son(s) fall short
when trying to follow behind the father.

I am at a loss to identify additional good models other than the one
mentioned above, am I missing some?

I was wondering if the subject has been well researched and if there is
consensus for the pattern.
