I am so sorry for your loss and the situation. Has the Will been offered for probate? If not and you are going to present same, then you can allege that the named executor is not able or unwilling to serve. He can renounce his appointement so long as he is mentally capable of understanding that. If he is already appointement, you have to make a motion to substitute you as executor. Good luck.
