Yes, you can be his POA. You can also be the executor of the will. There is no legal conflict of interests there. Family members are often POAs, executors, and heirs.

The law dictionary describes an "heir" as follows: one who acquires property upon the death of another, based on the rules of descent and distribution, namely, being the child, descendant or other closest relative of the dear departed.
