Just let him know you are there for him. He will be comforted knowing that.

My heart goes out to your Fiance and his family….  BayStateBride gives great advice- just be there as a comfort and support to him and his family.

In addition to the advice that has already been offered, I would say let him know that you’re avalible to him, that know he is hurting, that you understand it’s going to hurting and you will do what you can for him. 

 

Different people grieve differently, in my experence giving space but staying avalible is easiest.

@mrshersch74:  I’m so sorry, that is really sad 🙁 My co-worker’s friend’s father died today too!

So sorry to hear that. 

I think sometime’s it best not to say anything, and a hand squeeze or hug usually says it all. When FI’s grandma died, I just tried to keep on top of everything else so he didn’t have to worry about anything and could just process it all. He wasn’t very talkative, so I just made sure to make dinner, keep things clean, and be around so if he wanted to talk, I was there. He mostly just watched sports and sat quietly, but I would sit in the same room on my laptop or knitting. I didn’t want him to feel alone.
