You have to earn your place in heavens…or allow the DM to create a new campaign

If there is a way to earn heaven after death, breaking the realm of the dead’s rules through sheer willpower to protect your son must be it. I’m loving this.

Or it’s just a distraction so his son can live a better life, potentially removing the blight on his fathers name by the sons actions.

I’m not sure I understand you. Clarify, please? Do you mean it’s a way to push the son into doing something noble? Or what?

The father is in this purgatory because he worshipped some wrong deity or something. By distracting the demon he gives his son the opportunity to escape. That might be reason enough, but helping your son escape might also put that son in a position to redeem the father via his actions. Father saves son, so son can save father from purgatory. The action might help with the decision as well. In your terms, it could push the son into doing something noble. However, it’s D&D and the father is a complication the DM might wish to avoid.

The father is a returning character – he was possessed by a lich and made to do his bidding, so the fact the father is even here, in this limbo, and not in whatever version of heaven those characters have is almost due to a misunderstanding (he wasn’t serving out of his own free will, and in fact, worked against it to help beat the lich).

So the only place the father even needs redemption for is in the afterlife, because the world of the living view him and his sacrifice as heroic already, as far as we know.

If the soul is destroyed, it’s been a distraction.

If the soul can be restored and the gods look favorable on this action, Dad might make it to Valhalla.

More than fair. This is a “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” sort of moment.

Which track, and which version? Given this is the father it must be the classic tracks right? 😉

He doesn’t have to stop the demon. All he has to do is slow it down.

A stunning act of heroism and an everyday act of fatherhood.

Sorry, no. I don’t know DnD, but most demon lore is if one grabs and devours you soul, then it’s gone, no redemption. It becomes part of the demon and it’s tormented until it’s completely absorbed. Think of the giant ant lion (Snarlack?) in Jedi returns, 1000 years of digestion.
Maybe, just maybe, if the god of his people is watching and snatches him away at the last second, and even then…
