Is this correct English ?
Yes, that's correct. It's a respectful and gentle way to say that a person is dead, and is often used in a situation where the listener might not know about the death yet. That makes it a little humorous in this context.
Would it be a benefit or a drawback ? :D

I like it. "The late" is easy for both genders in Scottish Gaelic: Dòmhnall/Màiri nach maireann

The "Corpse of X" workaround won't work for me. For example:

Donald -> Dòmhnall.
Donald's Corpse (meaning Donald is a corpse): <corpse> Dhòmhnaill. And it gets more complicated with monosyllables too: Niall -> Nèill
Corpse of Donald (meaning he keeps one in his closet or something): <corpse> aig Dòmhnall
