There is nothing wrong with knowing this guy. I would start by asking how he is doing with the loss. Be genuine. If you are near each other, meet for coffee or similar, take a walk, and talk. How did both of you know your friend and not know each other? From that, things will arise to talk about. It will get less awkward as time goes on. Good luck!
