First contrary to what his creditors say you are NOT to pay his bills. The estate will have to if it has the money. If it doesn't so sorry.
As for burial expenses you v can chose to pay them. As to disposing of his stuff. Assuming he died in Pennsylvania I suggest you contact an estate lawyer from the county your uncle lived in. All you need do is contact that counties bar association an they can find you one.
