This retired vet with stage 4 cancer is sadly selling all his possessions to help pay for his funeral and a plot next to his parents.

When David Dunkleberger and Ed Sheets met the 66-year-old U.S. Navy vet at his yard sale, they were compelled to help.

So the friends set up a GoFundMe page, to assist the deserving vet with his funeral costs, which has racked up more than $50,000.

They say any funds left over from Willie’s final wish will go toward helping other veterans.
