Relative buried there in 1969

I have a relative buried in the "Cemetery General, Progreso, Yucatan, Mexico" 19 FEB 1969. His name is James Perley Hughes and he had a wife by the name of Berta Solis Hughes. Their address was Calle 21 No. 147-A Progreso, Yucatan, Mexico. He was 86 years old at the time of death and was originally from Minnesota and his last residence was Bay County, Florida. There he has a gravestone with a previous wife’s birth and death date on it. His name and birth date is on the headstone, but no death date.

How would I go about finding his burial plot, headstone, if it's still there and an obituary. I had a researcher check Bay County, Florida Obituaries and he is nowhere to be found. I have attached his death certificate from for US Citizens who died outside the country to help aid in this query.

Your suggestions and help is greatly appreciated.
