John R Davies died recently at the age of 82.
His family set up a just giving page in the hope of raising £1,000 to split between Hanmer surgery and Bronington Church with donations already just £50 from their target.
His son, Gareth Davies, who launched the fundraising said his father had been a lifelong member of Hanmer Surgery.
"During which and most importantly in his last days he had wonderful treatment from them," he said.
"He also spent many hours at the beautiful tranquil place that is Bronington churchyard tending his family's graves.
"Any donations to help these places be kept how he would have wanted would be gratefully received."
