Landon Clifford, a YouTube star and dad of two, has died at the age of 19.
A GoFundMe account set up for Landon reveals he suffered a brain injury and spent a week in a coma before he passed away on August 19th.
Landon and his wife, Camryn Clifford, are known for documenting their teen parenthood journey with their daughters, Colette Briar and Delilah Rose, on their YouTube channel Cam Fam, where they have 1.3 million subscribers.
Camryn, who had the couple’s first baby when she was 16-years-old, took to their joint Instagram account to make the shocking announcement of Landon’s passing, saying: “This isn’t how things were supposed to go”.
“August 13th 2020 was Landon’s last day being the best dad and husband he could be. After spending the following 6 days in a coma he passed on and donated several organs to people in need all over the country,” she wrote.
“He died saving the lives of others. That’s the type of person he was. Compassionate, loving, thoughtful, kind, and gentle. He was an amazing husband and the best father those girls could of ever asked for.”
The couple’s last YouTube video together showed Landon trying out a labour pain simulator, which had over 655,000 views.
Other videos have the titles: “Teen Dad’s First Time Alone With Both Babies” and “My Water Broke Prank On Husband”, which has over 716,000 views.
Camryn continued on Instagram writing: “It saddens me deeply that they will never get to truly know him. He was so young and had so much more life to live. This isn’t how things were supposed to go. He was meant to make it to his next birthday. He was meant to walk his daughters down the aisle. He was meant to die old with me.
“Words can not come close to describe the pain I feel. All I can do now is make sure our girls know how much he loved us. He’s looking down on us from heaven and his light will shine through the clouds when we look up at him. May he rest peacefully.”
Landon and Camryn married in 2019 and he was a proud father to two-year-old Colette and Delilah, who was born in May.
On Sunday, Camryn shared a photo alongside her friends and fellow YouTubers, showing her wearing a black dress and holding hands with the rest of the group.
“Today we celebrate his life,” she wrote.
She also took to her Instagram account to upload a story, showing a picture of her with her daughter alongside the caption: “The best parts of him are still alive in them. Whenever I miss him I just give my girls a big hug.”
A GoFundMe account set up to raise money for Landon’s medical expenses and funeral so so far reached $28,000 in donations.
