Chad and Brandi Wilson
~


Brandi Michelle Wilson, age 42, of Wichita Falls passed on September 13, 2022. She was born on April 27, 1980 to Gary and Susan Freudiger in Shattuck, Oklahoma. Growing up in Wichita Falls, Brandi attended Rider High School and was an officer in FFA where she showed pigs and heifers and played soccer. She graduated in the class of 1998, and then went on to graduate from Vernon College with a Business Associate Degree. All her life, Brandi had a servant’s heart, devoting time to her children and community. Most notably, Brandi volunteered for Holliday ISD for nearly ten years. The joy of Brandi’s life was her family, and she was rarely ever seen without a smile. She was always the first to offer to host and loved organizing Bunco, Bingo, and puzzle nights.

Chad Allen Wilson, age 42, of Wichita Falls passed on September 13, 2022. He was born on February 8, 1980 to Jack and Pam Wilson in Amarillo, Texas. Chad spent his early childhood years in Pampa, Texas before moving to Wichita Falls where he attended Rider High School and played golf. He graduated in the class of 1997. Chad had many different interests. He was an avid hunter and fisherman, frequently found to be doing these activities with his sons and friends. Chad also had a passion for flying. His friend of 30 years, Jason Creacy, described him as the best family man he has ever known. His kids fondly remember him grabbing what he would call his “Chad sized” ice cream, a full pint, and devouring it in one sitting.

Chad and Brandi were friends in high school and later connected in their early twenties. Chad and Brandi were married on April 26, 2003 in Wichita Falls, Texas. They established their life together in Wichita Falls where they raised their four children and built a successful business, Wilson Contracting, which is celebrating 15 years this October. Chad was preceded in death by his mother, Pam Wilson. Brandi was preceded in death by her father, Gary Freudiger. Chad and Brandi are survived by their parents Jack Wilson and Susan Freudiger; their children Taylor Morgan, Colton Chad, Carli Michelle, and Caden Marshall; and their siblings and nephews Curtis, Rosa, Cameron, and Tanner Wilson, and Trey, Kelli, Branson, and Bauer Burney. Memorials may be made to Harvest Food Ministry, Holliday ISD PTO, or Hospice of Wichita Falls.

WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Final arrangements have been made for a beloved Wichita Falls couple as the community continues to mourn their passing following a plane crash on Tuesday.

Funeral services will take place the following day, on Saturday, September 17, at First Baptist Church in downtown Wichita Falls at 10 a.m. in the Worship Center.

UPDATE: A single-engine plane with two people on board crashed right outside of the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport, on Tuesday.

The Chattanooga Fire Department said there was no fire and no serious injuries to the two people who were flying.

“Be advised we have an Alert 2 coming in and two souls on board. It is going to be a light sky-hawk. He thinks he has a flat tire. If you could just move everybody to crash,” an emergency dispatcher said.

“He has about 75 minutes of fuel on board. He is doing low flyovers right now,” an emergency dispatcher said.

Just minutes after that dispatch call, a plane licensed to Joel Andrew Dopson who lives in Ooltewah crashed right off of Jubilee Drive, just short of the Chattanooga Airport runway at Lovell Field.

Chattanooga Fire Department officials said the crash was caused by a small fuel leak and it was mitigated and controlled.

Phillip Rayburn, the manager of Farrow's Service Center said he saw it all go down.

“Today, I was out back doing some inventory on some vehicles and a little Cessna plane has been flying around over head for about an hour doing some touch and goes. The last touch and go he did I just so happen to be right by the fence in the back of the shop and he went right above my head, you could hear his engine cutting out, and next thing you know he was on the ground. He saved it, it was coming down sideways and right at the last minute he kind of pulled it out and leveled it out. It landed on the tires, bounced, and then it landed over on its side,” Rayburn

Rayburn said he thought that the plane was going to crash right into his building or in the parking lot.

“The first thing is it going to exploded and if someone is going to get hurt. That is not anything anybody wants to see, but that is what I thought was going to happen. Fortunately, he was blessed and got it straighten back out and it just bounced. No explosions, nobody's hurt, and it was definitely an experience,” Rayburn said.

He expressed that the incident is not something you see every day.

“Still a little shook up about it. Never seen a plane crash before, especially right beside you,” Rayburn said.

One man was killed and another was hospitalized on Monday after a small plane crashed in Waller County, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The crash occurred at about 2:30 p.m. near the intersection of Howell Road and Waller Gladish Road, officials said. 

The plane's pilot, Harding Rome, 74, of Houston, died in the crash, officials said. The name of the other man wasn't released on Monday night. He was transported to the hospital in critical condition, DPS Sgt. Stephen Woodard said.

Rome was the registered owner of the Pipistrel Sinus 912, and had an active pilots license.

It's not immediately clear what caused the single-engine plane to crash, Woodard said. 

The crash occurred near the Soaring Club of Houston, a non-profit group that dedicated to glider aircraft. The club's address is on Howell Road. A message left at the Soaring Club wasn't returned on Monday night.

Rome's social media pages show that he was a member of the Soaring Club. He posted video of himself piloting gliders as far back as 2015.

The Texas Department of Public Safety and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the crash, officials said.




WALLER COUNTY, Texas – A pilot has died and a passenger is in critical condition after a small plane crashed Monday afternoon in Waller County, the Texas Department of Public Safety said.

The aircraft nose-dived and folded over on itself in a field near Waller Gladish and Howell Road after possibly experiencing mechanical issues, according to Lt. Craig Cummings, a spokesperson for the Texas Department of Public Safety. Cummings said the plane’s engine had dislodged during the crash.

Investigators said the plane departed from Hooks Airport and was headed to Soaring Club of Houston.

Cummings said the two men were both flown to Memorial Hermann Hospital via Life Flight in critical condition. The pilot, Harding Rome from Houston, was later pronounced dead.

The FAA is sending an investigator to conduct its own investigation into the crash. DPS troopers are holding the scene to help the FAA with its investigation. Cummings thanked the Waller County Sheriff’s Office, EMS and fire department for actively responding to the scene and helping law enforcement.

The scene is under investigation and officials are asking people to stay away from the area.
