I think he definitely needs to know but on a 3-year-old's level. My father-in-law died in 2011. My DS was 2 and even then we still told him Papa was bye-bye and that he went to heaven to be with God. We still show him pictures and a whole year and a half later he still knows who Papa was. I personally think 3 years old is an ok age to start talking about death in a way they will understand.
