If the check was issued to the father, then is now belongs to his estate and only the rep for his estate could cash or deposit that money into an estate account.
So someone would have to file a probate case and be appointed the legal rep for the estate and then they could open an estate bank account and deposit the check. Then that money, along with any other money would go towards any estate debts or bills and then any surplus would go to his heirs.
I just wanted to touch base with you and check in.
Did you have any further questions I can help with?
