The 37-year-old father-of-two was driving home from a game of ice hockey when his car veered off the road, into the front yard of a suburban home on Telegraph Rd, where the vehicle flipped and crashed into a tree at around 10.30pm.

He is survived by his wife, Warner resident Nikki-Lee Holden and their two children, aged five and 15 months old.

His father, who asked not to be named, said Adam was a dedicated father and "had a beautiful house and a good job" as a carpenter.

Adam's brother-in-law Brent Holden organised the GoFundMe for the family on January 26, stating, "the harsh reality is love and support won't be enough to pay a mortgage and future costs of raising a young family".

"Adam's passing was sudden and tragic, which has been extremely difficult for all his family and friends to comprehend," Mr Holden said.

"I am reaching out for help … no matter how big or small, to go towards the cost of helping Nikki and kids during this horrific time."
