It is possible for him write a very simple will.
Start it saying this is the last will and testament of ………….Then list who will be executor.Then simply state what he wishes to leave and to whom. Do that in numbered points ie 1,2,3 etcHe would then need to sign and date in front of two people

the document if signed and witnessed is legal. A will does not have to be written by a lawyer
