First of all, have you done a Google search of their name? You may be able to find it that way. Also, if you know where they died, death certificates are public records. Try looking up your the state's bureau of vital statistics and see if you can find anything.

go to the librairy and ask if they have the newspapers from a period with only local news and family messages of any kind like birth and so on

That would depend on where in the world he died........ there is the SSI ( Social Secuity index) in the USA and freebmd index in the UK ( England and Wales) this will give you a quarter the death was registered in not the actual date There is find a grave which is free mainly USA but also has some other countries Most images of real records are online in France although doubtful you will get 1970-7 as many records worldwide are sealed up to 70-100 years.............. This has many links to various world websites, many of which are free......... However the easiest way is to ask another family member about such as recent ( in genealogy terms) death...........
