R. A. GANDY DIES FOLLOWING CRASH NEAR LEXINGTON
Lexington - The head of an Omaha construction company was fatally injured when his light plane crashed on a county road.
Another man was injured in the crash late Saturday.
The dead man was Ralph Arden Gandy, 41, head of the Gandy Construction Company of Omaha.
Thomas M. Johnson, Sidney, Ia., is the injured man. He was a foreman for the Gandy firm.
A Lexington funeral director, W. H. Pfeifer, said Gandy and Thompson had been visiting the farm of Dennis O’Connor, a cattle feeder who lives six miles southeast of here. The Gandy firm had built a grain elevator on the farm and the two were inspecting it.
Planning to return to Omaha, Gandy and Thompson took off from a field on the O’Connor farm, Pfeifer said, but almost immediately the plane, piloted by Gandy, stalled and crashed on a road.
Gandy died a short time later in the Lexington Community Hospital.
