This isn't really technical writing-oriented but it is IT-related, so here goes . . .
This morning, Facebook posted a message announcing that today is the birthday of (name here).
Well, the named individual was the lead guitarist in my little oldies band who passed away about two years ago (age 71) due to a bad heart and having lived a real "rock-and-roller's" life. A great guy who knew all the stuff that "we" remember from the 1950s, '60s, etc. And DAMN, was he good!

I realize that Facebook doesn't have a staff that pores through obituaries, so they don't know who is and who is not here any longer.
So the question is who can I email to let them know this individual is deceased? Surely, they can look at the past history of his Facebook account and see that there's been no activity since his passing. And his wife will surely vouch for this.
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
