Asbury FIELDS - obit or news item?

Supposedly my gggrandfather died in a flash flood on a hunting or fishing trip near Junction, TX. I'm guessing it was some time in the 1920's or early 30's. His last appearance is in Snyder on the 1920 census at the age of 67. Shouldn't there have some sort of death notice? Even if no body was recovered? An obit or article? Would there be a death certificate if no body was recovered? Is there a central repository of Kimble obits? (The Asberry Fields in Hill county on the Texas death index is someone else. Hill country, Hill county....) I've tried coming around this from the sides to narrow down the time frame. His wife and widowed daughter don't show up on the 1930 census. His son's out of state (NM). He's not mentioned in obits for his son (1938) or wife (1942). I'm stumped.
