They might not ever know about the situation if someone does not notify one the Fidonet managers I would guess. If you know a sysop has died, you can notify that sysop's Fidonet region coordinator if you know them. Or you can notify Janis Kracht who is head of Fidonet in North America via Netmail, or her email address email@example.com.
When Gordon Lewicky died in July 2005, which was two years ago now, I have idea how long people kept his BBS listed in the Fidonet records until someo noticed that the bbs no longer existed. Its always possible that the Fidon organization has robots that check on connections frequently to see which o respond as being in existence, or indicate that they are offline by the fac that the robot can't login to the site.
