from KWTX 

Seay was in a crop duster circling the air when his plane struck a wire on a cell phone tower.

Incidentally, although the original link in this post is no longer working, an interesting article back in 2007 about John Seay. 

And here's part of his bio from JohnnySeay.com (from daughter Fawn)-Go up and look, there are som pretty amazing photos on this site.   Also a musical biography, since he was a Nashville recording star.

It wasn't long before my father realized that his life just wasn't what he wanted. You have a Hit Record and instead of a royalty check, the record company tells you that you owe them money? It was a style of living that my father tired of and he wanted more lasting relationships. So, in 1969, he simply walked away. My father has no regrets. He made a lot of good friends in the music business and they are still his good friends today.

After leaving the music business behind, he fulfilled his dreams by doing everything he ever wanted to do in his life. He came to Texas and worked at the Miller Ranch as a cowboy for a couple of years and he found peace and satisfaction in a career with the Santa Fe Railroad as a conductor and brakeman, and later, with Fort Worth and Western Railroad, retiring as a steam locomotive engineer. Along the way, my father has been a Commander for the 131st Air Search and Rescue Squadron, U.S. Air Force Auxiliary and Civil Air Patrol as a pilot; he is an award-winning painter, sculptor and gun engraver. But above all else, he loves flying crop duster aircraft. He says it's the only job he's never tired of.

My father now resides at his Texas ranch with his wife, Two Star (my mother). They have been together almost 30 years and he has 9 children and 14 grandchildren; Fawn Raven Seay Lester (me), Lakota Octavia Dawn Gwenivere Seay, Mary Checotah Two-Star Seay, Chancey Mandan Seay, Amber Cheyenne Hummer, Sabra Lahoma Seay, Shannon Seay Dail, John A. Seay lll and Alana Godin.

My father is now 66 years old, and has lived a life that most only dream of. He has accomplished everything he has ever dreamed of doing, (he will tell you, he has done everything but get rich) although his fiddle can really frustrate him at times. He is the greatest man in the world to me and to all of his children and to his grandchildren. He is the most wonderful person you will ever meet.
