HOLMES COUNTY - The family of a 25-year-old local man who died in a car accident on Father's Day is in need of community support.
The family of Aaron McAdams, of Ponce de Leon, has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $10,000 to cover funeral arrangements and give additional financial support to his wife and two daughters.
"He loved to smile, he was very hyper," said his youngest sister Tiffany McAdams, 24. "No matter what, when he walks in the room, he makes everybody smile. He'll give you the shirt off of his back."
According to an Florida Highway Patrol news release, a person - who was not identified in the release - was driving a 1994 Ford F150 north on Old Mill Road and lost control of the vehicle.
The vehicle crashed into a tree and caught on fire. The crash victim was pronounced dead on scene.
Although FHP had not identified McAdams by time of press Tuesday as the deceased in the Sunday night car crash north of Highway 90, his family members confirmed he was indeed the victim.
McAdams wife Bridgette was sorrowful in the late afternoon on Monday. She reflected on what kind of person she knew him to be.
"He was a great father," she said. "He was really hard-working."
Funeral arrangements are pending.
As of Tuesday morning, $1,575 had been raised. To make a donation, go to GoFundMe.com/Aaron-McAdams.
