Remembering The Victims Of The Plane Crash

Posted: Updated:

PULASKI COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) Family and friends are grieving the four Pulaski County victims killed in a plane crash near Glasgow in Western Kentucky Sunday afternoon. 

Students at Pulaski County High School had heavy hearts as classes began Monday. They lost one of their own in the crash, 15-year-old Noah Foster.

Noah was a sophomore. He is described as a likeable young man who everyone turned to for help with technology. Many say he was like his father, Somerset attorney 41-year-old Scott Foster. he also died in the crash. He loved to fly and friends said he and Noah often flew for out-of-state hunting trips. Just like the tip they did this past weekend.

The father and son loved duck hunting.

Close friend and fellow attorney, Robert Norfleet, told LEX 18 that Scott leaves behind a wife and two younger daughters, as well as a legacy that will leave people smiling.

"He was doing what he loved duck hunting, him and his son and going duck hunting with friends," said Norfleet. 

Two other pillars of the Pulaski County community were lost in the crash, Dr. Kyle Stewart, a well-known dentist, and Doug Whitaker, who served as Chaplain for the Somerset Police Department. 

Over the years, Whitaker helped members of the force when they needed it most, spiritually and emotionally. But Chief William Hunt told LEX 18 that they never needed Whitaker, their friend, and confidant, more than they do now. 

"The first thing that went through my mind was, 'I need to call Doug', and I didn't have Doug to call. So it was a very difficult experience to go through," he said. 

Dental partners and patients in town all say the same thing about Dr. Stewart, he brought a smile to everyone's face.

"Just a really good guy. Never heard him say a bad thing about anybody," said Natalee Neikirk. 

The funeral arrangements are still pending. Chief Hunt told LEX 18 that they will give Doug every honor they can.
