Question

What does Preceded mean?

I saw that in my grandpas obituary says that he is preceded in death by his parents, daughter and sister. Does this mean that his sister and daughter died? I know my grandpas parents passed. Please answer me? Thanks in advance.

Answers

""Preceded" means "went before" or "came before." If my birth preceded yours, it means my birth came before yours. If your death was preceded by mine, it means my death came before yours.

In the obituary, it means that your grandpa's parents, daughter and sister all died before he did.
