He has asked me to co-sign a loan for so far two of his kids college tuition, explaining that it would be no problem since he could always cover it if needed - from his retirement I think. He can't co-sign himself after having gone through financial trouble in the past with a divorce and bankruptcy.

The with a divorce and bankruptcy. says it all. He can't guarantee that he will be able to pay for it. The kids have been raised in a financially unstable home. Unless you are willing to give the kids the tuition money DON'T cosign.

This is only the first request for money. The same will be expected for the other two.
