Most Famous YouTubers That DiedThese were the most famous (subscribed) YouTubers that died. Yet many died in unexpected ways.
I remember the first video he uploaded about cancer. I came home, I was alone and I cried so hard that I turned red. And I remember 30th. I told myself I would probably cry is one of the SBI members died, but it would last a day because I was "heartless". I woke up next day seeing all tweets about him and deleting them without reading because I didn't want to see a spoiler. 31 second was enough make me cry 5 hours straight. After 2 months I was able to understand what he said in his last note because I did watch it while breathing not crying.It has been over a year still crying and I still can't watch his clips. I hope he is happy rn even though he was an atheist. Fly high big brother.
I only got into Technoblade around January 2021 and became a channel member in January and am still a channel member, I wish I knew him longer.
I just came to know about him a few months ago. I used to watch his videos and he was really humorous. Technoblade was a huge loss. I hope that his soul rests in peace.! So long Techno.
A shame that a young man who had a really big following who was just turning his life around one step at a time lost his life at a young age. XXXTentacion Definitely would have made it even more big over time if his death never happened on June 18th, 2018. The killers responsible deserve to rot in prison for the rest of their pathetic wrathful lives. One of my favorite songs from his discography is Moonlight.
He had 14.3 million subscribers at the time of his death. He was shot while riding a motorcycle in Miami, Florida. His channel currently has over 23.7 million subscribers. This has been dubbed the John Lennon/Kurt Cobain assassination for the YouTube history books, one of the worst & darkest days & tragedy ever for the YouTube community. Showing us such bad things can happen to the biggest people unexpectedly. Eventually a memorial was built for him at his funeral, which was one of the biggest for the YouTube community. The whole world mourns his death to this day. He was only 20. R.I.P. XXXTENTACION.
He was the King of Random, doing the biggest number of random videos on YouTube & the most famous & subbed one that ever died that made videos that didn't rely mainly on music, gaming, films, or rewinds. He had 11.6 million subscribers at the time of his death. He was killed in a paragliding accident on July 28th, 2019. He was over 38 & a half years old. Yet since his death, his channel's become a legacy & the YouTube world still mourns his death to this day. His death hit the YouTube platform & community like Paul Walker's did to the film industry (yet the cause was accidental as well). Yet his channel & YouTube aren't the same anymore without him. Yet there won't be another random YouTube creator as profound as him. It was truly that bad. R.I.P. Johnathan Grant Thompson (King of Random).
He had 9.59 million subscribers during his death. He suffered a severe allergic reaction that became fatal. His death was 3rd place for the YouTube community for a reason. R.I.P. Monty Oum.
RIP caleb. He was only 13 years at the time. He deserved more life. RIP!
He had 6.91 million subscribers at the time of his death. He had hypertrophic cardiomyopathy & died of it at just over 13. R.I.P. Caleb Logan.

TheAngryGrandpaShow was one of the most hilarious shows I had ever watched. It was sad to see him go. RIP!

She had 3.99 million subscribers at the time of her death (which was so close to 4M). She was shot by a deranged lunatic fan named Kevin James Loibl. She was 21. Her death was like the Selena Quintanilla tragedy for YouTube's history books & had a profound effect on the YouTube community & made YouTubers & other stars scared for their safety. This changed the way many events worked including adding extra security & having meet & greet access limited to impossible, all because of this. She was so close to getting 4M subscribers & had 100 subscribers shy of 4M & was killed before that moment happened. A TOTAL near miss & a true talented angel lost. R.I.P. Christina Grimmie.
He had 3.33 million subscribers when he died. He died of natural causes in his sleep the day before New Year's Eve in 2018. He was the 2nd most subscribed YouTuber gone in 2018. R.I.P. Mike Taylor.
If he'd known about Min-Min becoming Smash Bros DLC (she dropped just weeks after his death), might he have held on longer? Possibly gotten the help he needed in that time?
Desmond Daniel Amofah (Etika), 1 of the tallest YouTubers & streamers (a whopping ~6'6"), had 800,000 subscribers at the time of his death. He was depressed, admitted his depression, then wandered off & killed himself by drowning. He committed suicide on June 19th, 2019. He had a chance of reaching his 1st million but he committed suicide before that. A horrible day for YouTube. R.I.P. Etika.
He was a good gamer, I wish he didn't have to go away with depression. RIP!

Steve Cash was a YouTuber best known for his Talking Kitty Cat series, but he also made other stuff such as his 4Steves web series, his old blog videos that he used to post back in 2008-2014, skits, cover songs, and even some original music, but sadly, on the morning of April 16, 2020, he took his life. A truly amazing and talented guy gone at only 40 years old. RIP Steve. You will be sorely missed.

That's why you don't try to outrace a train.
