Does "gone" as an adj. mean "dead"? Do we say my grandfather is gone?
Yes, it's possible - it's a euphemism. Also passed away.
It can be used when the person has died recently- when a frienf of mine died a few years ago, another friend rang and said that he had gone of a way of telling me he had died.
