Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Do you have a written contract signed by both of you agreeing on a fixed purchase price for the property?
Has anyone filed a probate case to settle his estate?
Ok, then the contract is still entirely enforceable. It would just be the deceased's estate, through the Executor/Administrator, that would continue on with the contract and conclude the sale.
But only the representative for the estate would have the authority to sign a deed transferring the property over once the money was tendered for payment. So someone will have to file a probate case to settle the estate and be appointed representative so that they can continue with the contract.
