His wife, 66, was the leader of a Christian weight-loss group called Weigh Down Ministries which she launched in 1986.
She wrote a best-selling faith-based weight-loss book, urging people to “turn away from the love of food and towards the love of God”, and founded the Remnant Fellowship Church in Brentwood in 1999, according to her website.
The National Transportation Safety Board said no passengers were presumed to have survived and that an investigation is underway to determine the cause of the accident.
Lara also appeared in such action movies as Sunset Heat, American Cyborg: Steel Warrior, Final Equinox and Doomsdayer and TV series including Baywatch and Conan.
