We are sorry for your loss.  You may be able to claim him as a dependent.  Since prison is considered a temporary absence from home, if he was living with you, his medical condition caused his death, and he did not provide half of his own support, you could claim him as a qualifying child and perhaps receive Earned Income Credit.
