MUHAMMAD ARAHSD BIN TAQIUDDIN
First of all, I would like to console you and make Duaa to Allah that He may forgive your grandfather and have mercy on his soul. May Allah admit in Jannat-ul Firdous.
The most important thing that you can do for your grandfather is make Duaa and make Isaal-e Thawab by making good deeds on his behalf.
You can certainly give Sadaqah on his behalf and donate the reward to his soul.
You should make an estimate of Fardh prayers that he missed during his life and then pay Fidya on his behalf.
And Allah knows best.
