Re: help to restore my grandpa's photograph,a trib

Sure, I would use a combination of the Clone stamp tool, heal tool and patchwork tool to fix the dust specks.

To correct the faded image, try using the curves tool or maybe the levels, I had a quick look at your image and I would try scaning it in at atleast 300 dpi as the image looked quite low res.

Re: help to restore my grandpa's photograph,a trib

I first looked at the channels and since the blue channel seemed to be the best I used Channel Mixer/Monochrome/100%Blue and 0 red and green.

Next I used the patch,healing brush and clone tools

To smooth out the grain I used Neat Image on a separate copied layer with a layer mask

I Sharpened some areas

I put the color back in with a HSL adjustment layer

Hello and welcome Sava,
I like the photograph- it will certainly be a fitting tribute to your grandfather when you have restored it to it's former glory.
How you go about restoring this image is dependent on a few things... Are you intending to print it? and if so, at what size? What resolution did you scan the original? What software are you using to restore the photo?
