NORMAN, Oklahoma -

A man’s body was found in Lake Thunderbird Monday afternoon.

One man still remains missing on the lake following a boat crash Saturday. 

After an agonizing weekend, Brian Kelley can now make funeral arrangements for his son Brandon.

“He loved his wife, loved his kids,” Brian said of his son Brandon. 

Brandon Kelley’s body was recovered from the lake nearly two days after the crash.

Brian said Brandon died doing what he loved.

“That’s what he did to relax was be on the lake,” Brian said.

Family says Kelley was with a friend, Cody Foster, who is still missing.

Foster and Kelley’s boat was involved in a crash with a second boat Saturday evening, according to Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

The second boat’s driver, Steven Taylor, and his passenger, Jennifer Collet, are in stable condition after being taken to the hospital.

Both boats have been recovered from the water.

OHP says Foster is presumed dead, but the recovery search will continue until he is found. 

Authorities say finding Foster is the top priority now, but an investigation will take place to find out how this happened.

Some witnesses claim they heard one boat playing music and accelerating loudly just before the crash.

However, Brian Kelley said he isn’t worried now about the cause. Instead, he’s focusing on his faith. 

“I know I’m going to see him in heaven. His kids are going to miss him tremendously as all kids do. His wife is going to miss him,” Brian said.

A GoFundMe account has been set up for Kelley's family. Click here if you would like to donate.
