In the same manner as if the dead person lived, naturally.
The standard human brain circuitry for emotion of this kind
works equally well for hating the living as the dead.

I would like to rephrase the question as

  ``Why would anyone feel anger to a person?''

since anger is counter-productive, except when one wants to kill a person
in unarmed, manual combat.

Non-emotional rational thought gives better results in most other situations.
The emotions, including anger, tend to reduce the human biocomputer into an
irrational animal, easily beaten by an inferior which uses rational thought.
OTOH, rage under rational control can make wonders.

It appears especially meaningless to feel emotions towards an inanimate, dead
object, like the ones living persons turn into when they die, IMO.
