Good Samaritan Gets Big Surprise When Elderly Neighbor Dies

One UK man thought he was just being a good neighbor when he cleaned out an older man's gutters. He even turned down offers of payment. When the older man died, he left behind a huge shock for the younger man.

Daniel Sharp was saddened to hear when his 75-year-old neighbor, Ronald Butcher, passed away. Sharp would help Butcher with odd jobs like cleaning out the gutters, and always refused any form of payment. Sharp was never expecting Butcher to write the younger man into his will.

Butcher stunned sharp when he left him $700,000. Sharp claims he had no idea that Butcher altered his will to include his good neighbor.

Butcher's family is even more stunned, and livid. They are suspicious of the last-minute will changes made only months before the man died. They believe Sharp Influenced Butcher to change his will.

Sharp's attorney denies that accusation. "[Mr. Butcher] found a male friend in Mr. Sharp, somebody he could chat to. They had a shared interest in DIY and he liked to hear about Mr. Sharp’s son," he said.

Sharp doesn't even want the money. He's asked a judge to revoke the current will in favor of reinstating an older version. In that version, Butcher had left the money to his family.

Depending on Butcher's relationship with his family, it might not be that surprising. Some people would rather leave money to the people they actually like, rather than the people they happen to call relatives.
