A joyous Ohio couple’s celebration of marriage quickly turned to sorrow when their honeymoon in the Caribbean was cut short by a devastating event. Nate Kuhlman, who had just exchanged vows with Mariana Kuhlman in Steubenville on October 28, suffered a fatal waterskiing accident while the couple was in St. Lucia.
Described as a loving husband and cherished member of the community, Nate’s untimely death has shaken his family and friends. A GoFundMe campaign has been established to gather support for the Kuhlman family during this difficult time.
