The Church has established some very fixed rules about reserving persons born in the last 110 years.
You must obtain permission from a close living relative to reserve and perform the vicarious ordinances for the person.
A close living relative is defined as living spouse (at the time of the person's death), parents, siblings (brother or sister), and adult children.
Since your great uncle was born in 1912, you will be able to reserve and perform the vicarious ordinances in 2023, unless you can establish an accurate birth date in 1912. Note that at that point, you will no longer need permission.
Take time to read the applicable articles, starting with "How do I request ordinances for an ancestor who was born in the last 110 years?" at https://www.familysearch.org/help/sal... -- the rest of the pertinent articles are at the bottom on that article. You will need to be logged into FamilySearch as a member of the Church to read the articles.
