National Transportation Safety Board investigators would later conclude that the plane suffered a loss of cabin pressure and that all on board died of hypoxia hours before it crashed. Stewart, 42, won 11 PGA Tour events, including three major championships, in his career. He's seen here after winning the 1999 U.S. Open Championship on June 20, 1999.
