     His Social Security Number was 466-64-9467.7 Dr. Jerry Richard Neely Wimberley - Rescue workers struggling through brushy hill country of Central Texas, reached the wreckage Tuesday of a light plane and removed the bodies of two Southwest Conference basketball referees. Investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration were trying to determine the cause of the crash. The plane which carried Dr. Jerry Neely of San Marcos and Bill Horlen of San Antonio, had been missing since it took off last Friday night from the lower Rio Grande Valley, where the two men had refereed a basketball game in Edinburgh. Services for Neely, 34, who attended McMurray College and had a master's degree from Abilene Christian University, will be at 2 p.m. Wednesday in San Marcos' First United Methodist Church. Burial will be at 11 a.m. Thursday in Elmwood Memorial Park in Abilene. No flight plan was filed, but Neely, the pilot, reportedly planned to fly to San Marcos from where Horlen would drive to Waco to referee a Saturday night Southwest Conference game. When the men failed to arrive in San Marcos early Saturday, a search was begun by Civil Air Patrol. Late Monday afternoon a CAP plane spotted the wreckage of the single engine Cessna 177 from the air and a helicopter from Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio confirmed the two men were dead inside. Ground teams however were unable to reach the crash site until Tuesday morning. They had to plod through cactus studded craggy terrain to reach the scene, about 15 miles Northwest of San Marcos. "The plane did not burn. It looks like it just nose down into a hill," said Lt. Tom Todd of the Civil Air Patrol. Rescuers reached a plane about 8:30 a.m. The bodies were removed at mid morning and taken to a funeral home in San Marcos. Horlen and Neely were among 42 referees approved to officiate Southwest Conference basketball games. Neely, a Jacksboro native, was an Associate Professor of Education at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos. The Rev. Jerry Smith, pastor of the First United Methodist Church of San Marcos, will officiate at Wednesday's services. A memorial service for the Neelys and friends of the family will be Thursday, noon at Saint Paul United Methodist Church in Abilene.
