Alaska Rep. Mary Peltola’s husband died after a plane crash Wednesday, according to a statement from the congresswoman’s office.

“We are devastated to share that Mary’s husband, Eugene Peltola Jr.–‘Buzzy’ to all of us who knew and loved him–passed away earlier this morning following a plane accident in Alaska,” Peltola’s office wrote.

“He was one of those people that was obnoxiously good at everything. He had a delightful sense of humor that lightened the darkest moments,” the statement continued. “He was definitely the cook in the family. And family was most important to him. He was completely devoted to his parents, kids, siblings, extended family, and friends – and he simply adored Mary. We are heartbroken for the family’s loss.”

It is unclear what caused the plane crash.

In July, a retired U.S. Army Major General died in a plane crash in Havre De Grace, Maryland, authorities said.

In a statement provided to American Military News, the U.S. Army confirmed the death of Ret. Major General Anthony W. Potts, 59, and offered its condolences to the Potts family.

“It is with deep regret that we inform you of the death of Maj. Gen. Anthony W. Potts who passed away on July 25, 2023. Maj. Gen. Potts completed over 36 years of distinguished service, most recently serving as Program Executive Officer, Command, Control and Communication (Tactical), Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland,” Lt. Col. Ruth Castro said. “The entire U.S. Army is grateful for his service, and we extend our deepest and most sincere condolences to the entire Potts family.”

Potts was the only person on the aircraft when it went down. He was pronounced dead at the scene. No other injuries were reported.
