Maybe if you go with his cousin, on the programs you could say:
Best Man: Cousin’s Name, in loving memory of Father’s Name

I like hcritton’s idea! It honours both people!

how would the cousin feel about standing in for his dad? would he know about that beforehand? could he reference it in his best man speech

hcritton, that’s a wonderful idea! Mentioning your FI’s father sometime during the ceremony and/or during the toasts might be a good idea too. Can you ask your FI how he would like to honor his father or is he too sensitive right now?
