Lori Gibson, a spokeswoman for the family, identified the victims Tuesday as Glenn Mull; his wife, Elaine; their daughter, Amy Harter; and granddaughter Samantha Harter. Gibson says Mull owned Mull Farms and Feeding in Pawnee Rock, about 15 miles southwest of Great Bend.

They were traveling to the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Trade Show in Nashville when their Gulfstream 690C crashed Monday while trying to land in suburban Nashville. They had taken off from the Great Bend Municipal Airport.

Gibson says the family “is in the process of coming to terms with the shock of this loss” while also trying to address the needs of Mull’s employees and the community.

U.S. Senator Jerry Moran issued the following statement:

“My heart goes out to the entire Mull family during this difficult time,” said Sen. Moran. “Glenn was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Both he and his wife Elaine were well-known for their generous spirit and commitment to improving Pawnee County. Glenn, Elaine, their daughter Amy and granddaughter Samantha will be greatly missed. I ask all Kansans to join me in keeping their family and friends in our thoughts and prayers during the days ahead.”
