David Craig Newberry, son of William E "Buzz" and Leota "Lee" Newberry. Died in a snowmobile accident in Houghton Lake, Michigan sometime in the late 1990?. I am looking for death information, burial info, obits, newspaper article (I believe he was hit by a drunk snowmobile driver and killed. I believe the driver spent some time in jail for his death).

I am his ex-wife and we were divorced before his death and of course I was not notified. I am trying to fill in that portion of my life for my family records. If anyone can help I would be grateful. Date of Birth for David was 10 Feb 1947, Milford, Michigan Thanks for any help

Thanks for the suggestions, unfortunately I have already tried the SSDI and other sites for information and have been unable to find any, that's why I thought I would try this forum. Thanks again

This is Dave's cousin Emie. I was thinking of David alot today and googled his name and found this. David was killed by a snow mobile while he was walking home from the bar. Yhe coroner called me and told me of the accident,Dave had a Christmas card from me in his pocket and that was how thet found me.I was asked if there were any siblings and I gave nancy's name. After that I was totally shut out. Nancy, Dauna or Pam would speak to me. Maybe they thought there was money,and maybe there was, I don't know. I just wanted to attend his funeral or memorial and was never informed of one. I don't believe they had any type of service for him at all. I believe he was cremated and buried with his folks. If I can help in any way please feel free to contact me. I still have the Betty Crocker cookbook you and Dave gave to me as a wedding gift. My husband passed away 13 years ago from a heart attack and I still reside in MI with my daughter. I hope to hear from you. Sincerely, Emie Gallagher
