The depth of the connection between a person and the father or grandfather of him is the reason of how much dreams about deceased relative the dreamer might have. Psychologically, it is the representation of what happened in waking life, our minds still accepting the fact of the death.

Dreaming about the death of the father while he is alive
It is strong dream. Personally, I had such dreams often while my mother was alive. I know the feelings that are triggered by such dreams and the meaning is also very clear for me, but it is very individualistic and can’t be attached to everyone’s dreams. By my personal experience, the dream about the death of a relative was the realization of deep hidden expectation that the death is not avoidable and the acceptance of it before it happens is the solution to the inevitable changes of my life. Generally, the creation of such experience while we are dreaming is based on amazing ability of our subconscious mind to prepare us so that we become more stronger and capable to bear anything who might seem first unbearable. In other words, the dream about the death of the father (or other relative) while he is alive is the training to live a life without him (or any beloved one). So, this dream means that after each of such dream we become stronger. Also, it announces that sooner or later we will receive the authority, power and wisdom that our father or grandfather have.
