This week brought terrible news to Western Kansas with the fatal accident of Jeff Landgraf. Just a few minutes ago, I received more dreadful news. A family or 4 well-known and loved Scott Countians, Dylan and Amy Spencer, and their 2 young daughters were flying back east to spend Easter weekend with Amy's family. I don't know many details other than the fact that their airplane crashed and all four people were killed.
Dylan was in partnership with his father, Richard, in their Spencer Pest Control business. They did a great deal of work in Wichita County. Amy was a school teacher with High Plains Educational Cooperative. Up until this year, she had taught preschool in Leoti. She was Leighlyn's teacher for both years that Leighlyn spent in preschool.
Our family feels just awful for the Spencer family. Dylan, Amy and their daughters were fine people.
