HELENA, Mont. (AP) — An 89-year-old World War II veteran has had to move out of his western Montana home after his deceased wife’s medical bills led him to file for bankruptcy.

Warren Bodeker lists a $981 monthly Social Security check as his only income. He filed for bankruptcy in February after racking up $109,000 in medical and credit card bills.

Bodeker says he wants to stop the sale of his home in Plains. He says the $155,000 sales price is only half of what it is worth and the sale will leave him with nothing after paying off creditors and legal fees.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Ralph Kirscher signed the June 12 order requiring Bodeker to leave his home.

The judge noted Bodeker waived homestead exemption and failed to disclose some of his assets.
