I was no more able to do this than anyone else so outsourcing was the only way. In one, we did a contents/garage sale but it was not really worth the effort. Probably got an extra $1500 but put in 10 days work.
We're in the process of getting his decades of cancelled checks, electric bill, etc cleaned out. We have an estate sale scheduled which is being done by "professionals." They will get 30% but they totally remove everything. That would probably be a fair trade right now if they kept it all.
Thanks for the input.
