Rick Howell was flying to nearby Custer Airport from a business meeting in Pennsylvania when the plane crashed about 35 miles southwest of Detroit and just north of the Ohio state line. The auto-parts business owner and two of his employees at Toledo, Ohio-based Conforming Matrix Corp. died.

They had taken off from an airport in Bedford County, Pa., earlier in the day.
