For passed away managers, see https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:When_a_Member_Passes_Away

You probably mean to link to a profile or adopt is as a profile manager. You then link to the shared tree as there is only one tree.

If Kenny is your 'grandfather', as an example, then you would go into Edit mode on your father, select the Add Father link on the right side of his profile, enter the Wikitree ID of 'Kenny', 'scroll to the bottom' so you can check to see if his spouse is listed at the bottom, with a checkmark.  If that is the 'mother', then leave the checkmark and save.  That will add both parents to your father.  This can be done without Admin help because you are just connecting profiles to each other.

You need to send a message to Admin  info @wikitree.com, telling them who you are, your relationship, that he has died, that you would like to take over management of his profiles, and then Admin will follow the process that Michel stated below.

Linda, Lon would not be able to connect any profile to Kenny because Kenny's profile is private.

Lon, you do need to send email to the info address Linda gave you about this.  I am sorry for your loss.
