Southern Indiana businessman dies in plane crash

January 3, 2007
A well-known Montgomery truss manufacturering executive was killed Tuesday when the six-seat airplane he piloted crashed in a farm field after taking off from Daviess County Airport in southwestern Indiana.

Abe Knepp, 64, owned K&K Industries, which employed 120. He had no passengers, and investigators have not determined a cause, according to The Evansville Courier & Press.

Knepp, also chaplain of the sheriff’s office, temporarily operated from an employee’s barn after his facility was destroyed by a tornado in November 2005.
