Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
The change in character and mood may be a reflection of his loss. Grief can present in different ways, it can sometimes intensify previous hidden or mild personality issues. It would be best for him to be seen by his doctor for assessment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
