John Potter has received an eviction notice from his daughter, Janice Cotrill, and his son-in-law and must be out of the house next week, ABC News reported Thursday.
Potter and his granddaughter, Jaclyn Fraley, have raised $139,603 through an Internet site to buy the house.
The house has been appraised with a market value of $47,000 plus $2,830 for a tract of land, and Potter had offered that amount to his daughter. She counter-offered for $85,000 plus an additional $15,500 for eviction and attorney fees.
Potter said he didn't want to pay more than what the house was worth, but made a second offer of $60,000, which was declined without a counter-offer.
Fraley, who expects the judge to evict her grandfather at a June 26 hearing, described the situation as "just so heartbreaking."
She's considered buying her grandfather a new house or building on to his caretaker's home. Fraley wants to keep him near his friends and is concerned about how Potter could be affected by a move away from the house he built 56 years ago.
"Right now I don't think he truly believes this is happening, because he never thought this would happen," his granddaughter said.
