Actually, over the years more H.R. departments are starting to verify
dates of employment and titles only. Because of that, many companies
don't bother to check references beyond that. I think as long as you
have someone who can be called for a reference, it won't make a great
deal of difference if that person is from your last job. Telling the
employer
when you interview that your last supervisor is deceased, but here
are your other references, should suffice.
