We had an administrator who worked in our company for a certain period and there are a lot of things associated with his account. E.g. workflow rules, record owners, external services which use his account to login.
He has left the company for more than half a year now and we are planning to remove his account to reduce cost. So my question is what areas should I be looking at in order to safely deactivate his account?

Things that can prevent disabling administrators:
Users in custom hierarchy fields
Workflow email alert recipients
Customer Portal Administrator users

Automated Case Owner
Task Assigned to the User
