Distressed (vs. Upset / Annoyed ) [His co-worker’s death (?) him]

I doubt in using these three words correctly! I wonder if you help me to use the most appropriate one in the blank: (My taking from every word has been written inside of the parentheses and this is why I have used the following bold words for each sentence)
His co-worker’s death....him (I want to indicate that made him very unhappy)
--->My suggestion: distressed

In my dictionary:
upset => means unhappy
Distressed => means very unhappy so it means very upset
Annoyed => means slightly unhappy
