No you have priority here under the will if you were named as the executor/personal representative.You would need local lawyer to make application to probate the will and be appointed by the court.The wife has priority here under Arizona law if you were named as executor under the will . The daughter here is only an alternate beneficiary.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
