I am so sorry for your loss.  Was there a probate of his estate?  Then the Executor or Personal Representative needs to sign over the title to you. You may be able to transfer it without a formal probate but more facts are needed.  Perhaps you can sit with an attorney for a flat rate fee to see the best way to proceed.  Good luck.
