This is really a wonderful thing you are doing for your friend! KUDO's to you, Sir!!!
A variation on the recommendation from Reindl Harald, is maybe set up a primary computer for your friend to use, being Fedora, for its useability with a second system running CentOS (which is up to v6.4 these days---very current) to handle the server-side of things. Assuming he has a large enough screen, then the functionality of Fedora might do the trick as his interface between both hosts (desktop and server). Another recommendation that would give him a bit more stability in this case, is to ensure all the updates for Fedora are occurring until its end-of-life, then simply turn off the yum updates. The downside would be no new features, nor updates/patches. In his case that might be worthwhile!
Wishing you both the best as you go down this road!
