A funeral service will be held Tuesday for the Erath pilot killed when his small plane crashed in Las Vegas.
50 year old Douglas Touchet of Erath will be remembered at a funeral mass Tuesday morning at St. Anne Catholic Church in Youngsville.
Touchet was killed earlier this week when the small plane he was flying, crashed into a neighborhood south of Las Vegas.
Three passengers on the plane were seriously hurt.
Witnesses are calling Touchet a hero for guiding the plane away from nearby homes.
No one on the ground was injured.
