How can I remove a iCloud account and password for a iPhone 5 if the owner is dead?

I don't have the icloud account or password for it.
You are most likely going to have to have (1) proof of death of the owner such as a death certificate, and (2) proof that you are now the rightful owner such as a will. Take those to the nearest Apple Store and ask to speak with a manager and they may be able to help you get it sorted out.

You might also want to give Apple technical support a call at (800) MY–IPHONE (800–694–7466) to see if they have any further suggestions.
