    I don't see any problem using wI', because while he was
alive he could use the language. When you rebember him, he was able 
to use the language. You'll ever refer him in past: 
"My captain said this/that", etc, like all of your dead ancestors:

"The grandfather of my grandfather had a beautiful house"
