If he filed in 1991, then it would have been long enough ago for you to immigrate based on that. Did you every marry? A marriage would terminate the petition from your father, unfortunately. Your father's death would not impact your eligibility as long as you were living in the US at the time of his death and until now, under a recent change in law that my colleague referenced (section 204(l)).
Try to get a copy of the I-130 approval notice showing his and your name and the priority date. Letters from the Department of State would be helpful too. If you do not have them it is possible to do a FOIA request in your nad your father's name to try to locate the records.
