A Central Florida family still reeling from a Thanksgiving tragedy is now asking for help and support from the community this holiday season.

Michelle Cortes described her brother, former Kissimmee resident John Gale, 41,  as a kind, hard-working man who would do anything for his loved ones. A rare, admirable person that she still has trouble talking about in past tense a week after his death.

“There’s not many people in the world like him,” she said. “It’s hard not to like him.”

Gale was heading home in his company truck on Nov. 21, when he was involved in a bizarre crash along State Road 417 in Osceola County.

He was traveling back to his family of five daughters, ages 6 to 15, and his fiancé, Tonya.
