You just know his ex is going to spin it, whether he attends or not. If he goes, she gets to tell everyone what a jerk he is, he was told not to come but here he is anyway, how inappropriate to intrude on their grief etc. If he doesn't attend, she gets to tell everyone how cold he is, how he just wrote these people out of his life, doesn't care about their grief, isn't supporting his children, etc.

Since he's decided not to attend due to logistics as much as anything else, I would definitely send cards and maybe flowers or an appropriate charity donation, so that people know that he was thinking of them, etc, to try to mitigate his ex's spin on his absence.
