IdentifytheShortStory Filter: Takes place in Spain. Probably by Hemingway. About a man who dies, but at the end of the story the narrative scope expands to include the lives of others.

A lot of Hemingway stories involve death and take place in Spain, so we might need a little more info if you have it.

His most famous story about someone dying is probably The Snows of Kilimanjaro, and that does include the POV of his wife at the very end I think, but that one takes place in Africa.

Chronicle of a Death Foretold, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez? I recognize that this novella only matches your criteria in the description of the narrative, but just wanted to throw it out there in case details were misremembered.
