Handling old caches

Went to a cache today that was in very poor shape, looking at the site found the owner was no longer in the game; doing a little looking found the guy had been killed by a drunk driver a few days after his last logging of a cache.

 

I have flagged for archiving caches that are missing containers and will get this one cleaned up and archived. However is there a way that I can go and adopt his other caches that are in good shape or what would be the proper thing to do?

Looking at your profile I see that cache was placed in 2007 so it's not all that old. Even though you posted a found it on the cache you can also post a Needs Archive log as you suggested the next finder do. Once the cache is archived you might even place your own hide in the same location as a tribute to the geocacher that was killed by the drunk driver. Just make sure that you don't including anything in the cache description that can be perceived as an agenda against drunk driving. Even good agendas are not allowed.
