Killed in the crash were Harvest Church elders Bill Garner and Steve Tucker and members Tyler Patterson and Tyler Springer.

Church elder and lead pastor Kennan Vaughn was the lone survivor in the crash, which was reported just before 10:40 a.m. Jan. 17.

The aircraft — identified as a Piper PA-46-350P JetProp DLX — left Memphis that morning as a business flight en route to the Yoakum Municipal Airport, NTSB reported. The plane crashed on private property about 1.5 miles southeast of the airport.

NTSB reported that there was “no post-impact fire.”

The passenger who suffered “serious injuries” got out of the plane’s cabin and called first responders from his phone.

Harvest Church will hold a visitation for Tucker from 10 a.m.-noon Jan. 28 and Patterson from 3-5 p.m. Jan. 29, respectively, followed by memorial services for both events.
