This is grief, rather than Depression, similar and very unpleasant, but obviously tied to the tragic loss of his brother. It is difficult for any normal human being to handle, espcially in these early days. HE could be very usefully helped by a counsellor, who could also advise you in more detail about how to be helpful to him. This can be especally difficult for a man to handle ( as we're so often brought up with the "big boys don't cry" nonsense )
Counselling would be far more useful than antidepressant drugs, at this stage
