I was the exxecutor for my father's estate in 2010. I just recently received a 1099 divedend for a stock that must have a\had been from dividend re-investment sdhares = 4 shares. I had already had the normal shares distributed. Well, now the Transfer Agent wants a current Court Executor decree that's not 60 days old, mine was in 2010, or, a Final Decree which I don't have. So, what do I do without spending more money?

Unless they are willing to work with you, you won't have much choice to get something from the court authorizing the transfer. That probably will cost something to do.
Sometimes transfer agents will do it because it is so little in value.
Send him a copy of the death certificate and the papers you had appointing you PR of your father's estate. Tell him to deal with it.
You are going to have to reopen the probate.
