‘Good bloke taken way too soon’ in crash
Tributes are flowing for the 26-year-old Warner man who died in a car crash north of Brisbane on Sunday.
Alex McCrea is being remembered by his friends and family as a "positive influence" who will be dearly missed by all.
Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash but initial investigations suggest that at about 10.15am on Sunday at Kremzow Rd, Cashmere, a car driven by Alex collided with a Mitsubishi Triton travelling in the opposite direction.
Alex was declared dead at the scene.
Friend Brad Dockery has started a Go Fund Me page for Alex in an effort raise money for his funeral.
"Alex was such a positive influence and there will never be enough words to explain his influence in this world and how much he will be dearly missed by all," Mr Dockery wrote.
"He had a way of welcoming you into his world, be the first person to lend a hand and showed a genuine interest like no other.
"He always welcomed you with a smile and was never afraid to throw around a bit of cheeky banter and share copious amounts of air-fryer recipes. At the gym he would always have a million pairs of food socks but one very familiar Liverpool jersey."
The Ferny Grove State High School graduate was studying at the University of Queensland.
The gym Alex had been a member of for a number of years also expressed their sadness at his passing.
"It is with immense sadness that we acknowledge the tragic passing yesterday of a well-loved member of our gym community," the post read.
"Alex joined our gym a few years ago and became very popular due to his easygoing, fun-loving personality and his big broad smile.
"He was a great encouragement to many, a gentle giant who helped make our gym a friendly and welcoming place. His presence will be sorely missed.
"Our sincere condolences go to his family."
Friend Alex Hawke wrote: "Such a good bloke taken too soon".
Police are still investigating the crash. Anyone with information is asked to contact Policelink on 131 44.
