COLUMBUS, OH – A newlywed couple from Ohio is dealing with an unimaginable tragedy after the husband lost his life in a waterskiing accident during their honeymoon. Nate Kuhlman and his wife Marian had just exchanged vows on October 28 and were enjoying their honeymoon on a Caribbean island when the accident occurred.
The specifics of Nate’s tragic death are still unclear, but it is known that a waterskiing accident was the cause. A fundraiser was initiated in the wake of his death, where Nate was remembered as a ‘wonderful husband, friend, son, and brother in Christ.’
