More than a dozen workers were hurt. Most had blast or burn injuries.
The two other people to die were 44-year-old Michael Bruggman and 36-year-old Filiberto Morales.
Gatesville police said on July 1 that the cause of the explosion hadn't been determined. However, an initial investigation indicated a construction-related accident resulted in a natural gas explosion.
