Legal representative is a prepetual succession in terms of personal laws of the deceased.
Vague and incomplete facts can not lead to form proper opinion to oblige.
It would be appropriate to consult a local prudent lawyer for better appreciation of facts and professional advise.

First of all, it is helpful to review the Will if there is one. Often the deceased person will name alternative choices to serve as executor in case the first choice is unable to serve. As a side note, naming alternatives is a sound practice in estate planning.
If there is no Will or if it does not nominate a new personal representative, then it is a good idea to ask the heirs or the beneficiaries who they would like to see as the new personal representative. They may not all agree but this can help to avoid needless (and expensive) conflicts in probate. A discussion among the beneficiaries tends to be a good idea so that everyone involved is aware of the change that needs to be made.
Of course, it is a good idea to nominate an individual who is knowledgeable in financial matters and who is acquainted with the family, and financial affairs of the deceased person.
The representation cannot be passed on to his/her family member.
