Man with terminal cancer holds yard sales for funeral costs
BROWNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man has been holding yard sales to pay for funeral expenses. His own.
Some of his customers are going a step further to help.
David Dunkleberger says he and his friend Ed Sheets pulled into a yard sale in Brownstown last month. He says the man running it, Willie Davis, told him he was selling his belongings to pay for a funeral.
When asked whose funeral, the 66-year-old Davis replied: “Mine.”
Davis, who served in the Navy in the 1970s, has been diagnosed with stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma.
Ed Sheets tells WJAC-TV it “broke your heart” hearing Davis’s story and they wanted to help him “so his last days could be a little more peaceful.”
The two set up a GoFundMe page to help offset funeral costs.
