My husband just recently passed away. I was a a user on his credit cards do I have to re
apply in my name to keep them or will the credit card co just change them to my name
since I was the one who used them the most.

Yes, you would have to reapply for the card in your name. If you were only an authorized user of the card, and not a joint account owner, the credit card company would have the right to cancel the account. So, if you do notify the credit card company of your husband's death, they would cancel his account and ask you to re-apply in your own name.
