(MUSCATINE, Ia.) A man who devoted decades of his life to education is being remembered, after he and his wife died in a plane crash in Iowa.

68-year-old Daniel Slack and his wife, 69-year-old Sharon Lizzy Slack, both died in Wednesday's crash. They were from El Dorado Springs, Missouri.

According to the Muscatine County Sheriff's Office, on Wednesday at around 2:30 p.m., the report came in from Quad City air traffic control about a downed aircraft.

The private plane crashed into a field off of Highway 38 near 170th street in northern Muscatine County, killing the couple inside.
At 9:15 Wednesday morning they took off from Iron Mountain, Michigan.

They flew 350 miles across Wisconsin and then into eastern Iowa when their plane went down in northern Muscatine County.

Investigators say Wednesday's severe weather may have played a role, however the FAA and NTSB are still investigating the cause of the crash.

Temperatures today were slightly above average with highs in the upper 80s. Similar conditions are in store for Sunday as well as stronger winds with gusts up to 20mph. Tonight will be calm with lows in the upper 60s with very light wind. Temperatures will start off above average on Monday before a cold front moves through. That front will give us additional rain chances Monday night and some much more fall like temperatures through the rest of the week.
