Yes, assuming your are speaking of the beneficiaries 1040 and the RMD was paid out to the beneficiaries in December. To include it on his final 1040, it would have to be withdrawn prior to his death, I believe...although there may be some special circumstance that a post death RMD withdrawal would be on the final 1040. And if he paid estate tax, this payment for 2011 would be eligible for IRD treatment on your return(s).

And you don't give an age, but if this was father's first RMD, there would not have been an RMD and you would have had a year to make your first withdrawal.
