My husband pass away in feb 2009, I have our home that is in both of our name and I am soul servier. My question is can I sell the home with out going through a quick claims deed first to drop his name off of the title.

If you owned your residence jointly as husband and wife there is no need for any quick claim deed to be filed as the act of recording the death certificate into the public records will transfer title to you.
Both of my colleagues are correct.
