Grandpa Leaves Fortune To Someone Who Deserves It, Not His Family

When builder Daniel Sharp’s elderly friend passed away at the age of 75, he had no idea that his friend would leave him a substantial sum of money in his will. According to Metro, neither did the man’s family, and they are now disputing the will.

Ronald Butcher has been described as a private and quiet man. He struck up a friendship with Sharp after the builder had kindly cleaned his gutters at no charge. The pair would chat about DIY projects and Sharp’s family, and the elderly Butcher was thankful to have a male friend that he could converse with from time to time.

Despite the fact that they had grown close, Sharp was shocked to learn that his friend had left him a sum of £500,000 when he passed away in 2013. Apparently, Butcher had altered his will about two months prior to his passing, and that has his family up in arms.

Additionally, Butcher had apparently been dead for about two months before being discovered, and that has led the family to suspect something else is awry. The family is now seeking to have the will revoked and returned to its original state, which would have left Butcher’s fortune to his family.
