A doting father of five and Marine Corps veteran who served as pastor of an East Texas church died tragically Thursday morning when a plane in which he was traveling crashed near Tyler Pounds Regional airport shortly after takeoff.
Pastor Trevor Morris, 40, led Union Hill Baptist Church in Brownsboro, Texas, but he was also vice president at Burton Oil Service Operations. Aaron Greenwood, worship pastor at Union Hill, told the Tyler Morning Telegraph that Morris traveled frequently to Midland for his secular job and was on his way there again when he died. The pilot of the aircraft also died in the crash.
Morris, who lived with his wife, Nafisa, four sons and daughter in Murchison, served as pastor at Union Hill from 2009 to 2012 before moving to Ecuador to serve as an international missionary. In October 2016, he returned to his leadership role at the churchpost was originally published on this site
