The family of Earl Reese, the FedEx worker who was tragically crushed by a 1,300 pound pallet earlier this week, has started a GoFundMe to raise money in his honor.

Reese was only 57-years-old at the time of his death. His family, friends and co-workers were left in shock, sadness and pain.

Losing Reese, the sole family provider, has left his wife Carol and their three sons, Justin, Joshua and Jacob in need of help. A couple of years ago, Reese even he took on a second job to make ends meet. 

He also saw to it that one of his son Josh, who suffers from severe Tourette Syndrome, OCD, ADHD, and anxiety, would receive an advanced education and always be sheltered and cared for by him and his wife.

If you would like to pay tribute to Earl Reese, or his family you can donate here.
