The answer depends on whether there was a will or not and whether any assets were in his estate. A parent is generally free to leave money to whichever of their children they choose (or not). However, if a parent dies intestate (that is, without a will), the law specifies that a certain portion goes to their children.
While I hope this general legal information helps, it doesn't provide legal advice on the specifics of your situation. You may want to meet with an attorney to review the details of this particular estate.
