Newlywed Dies In Water Skiing Accident During Honeymoon Just 3 Days After Wedding

A man has tragically died in a skiing accident on his honeymoon, just three days after getting married.


Two GoFundMe pages were set up to help contribute towards funeral expenses and the donation target was exceeded, with one page raising more than $30,000 (£24,228) and the other over $42,000 (£33,921).

The bride paid tribute to her husband on the GoFundMe page, writing: “Nate was a wonderful husband, friend, son, and brother in Christ. He was able to thoughtfully encounter every person he met and those who had the blessing of a relationship with him would be able to tell a list of stories detailing what a fun, kind, and adventurous soul he was.”

“Nate tragically lost his life three days after his wedding. Words cannot describe the heart break there is for his story and for his family. We kindly ask for help to assist for funeral cost and travel of the family,” the fundraiser adds.

Nate and Mariana met through mutual friends, according to their wedding site.

Donors flooded both fundraisers with comforting comments. One said: “Words cannot express how we feel about your tragic loss. Charlene enjoyed her honor to work with Nate at her office as he was pursuing his career in medicine – he was tops both as an individual and a budding medical professional. The world has suffered a horrible loss.”

Another message said: “Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.” And a third added: “Nate was a great person with such joy.”

The late groom’s mother, Heather Kuhlman posted a tribute on Facebook.
