I would start by using a wide search for the person's name in Obituaries.  Especially if you have a date and place of his death.  It might even be as easy as just typing the name into Google or your favorite search engine and see what turns up.  If you get a very long list back, use CTRL-F tp search the Finds for that person's name and/or place of death or birth.

For example, type this into a search engine:

obituaries: first last year or city.

I'm assuming this is a fairly recent death but it works well for older deaths too.
