Eric,

His failure to deal with this now will certainly cost his heirs a huge amount to sort out later. If he [or his wife] reads, get some Nolo Press books from the library for him. They have several on estate planning, wills, trusts, probate avoidance, etc. Hopefully he will come to the conclusion that having a lawyer help will be prudent, but these books will give him ideas and perhaps a starting point. It doesn't cost anything to look.

Best of luck.

Foolish regards,

Vic
