HI, When a person dearest to him was dead. Can he behaves like that died one? Is there any psychological disorder in which a person behaves like his dead dearest one?

Yes, it may be due to behavioral disorder which may occur due to PTSD. The patient may internalize certain behaviors of his dead dearest one. To overcome this the patient should be shown to a psychotherapist in person for counseling.
