Do I file both a 1040 and a 1041 for decedent?

My father-in-law passed in 2016.  I am the executor.  We also closed probate in 2016.  He had income in 2016 prior to passing.  I think I need to file a 1040 for the time he was alive, and a separate 1041 for the estate income & expenses for the time after he passed through the close of probate.  Is that correct?
