In a year full of the unexpected, nothing is more saddening than a tragic passing of a person who was way too young. Landon Clifford, co-star of the Cam&Fam YouTube channel, along with wife Camryn, has sadly reminded us of this fact as he’s passed away unexpectedly at the age of 19. Leaving behind his wife and their two children, the young man’s legacy will live on not only in his contributions to entertainment, but also a very philanthropic gesture.

Taking to the official Instagram for their channel, Camryn Clifford announced that after several days in a medically induced coma, Landon had sadly died in the hospital. In her post, Clifford paid tribute to her late husband by celebrating his status as an organ donor, highlighting that this was a beautiful reminder of how selfless he was in life. Further reflecting on her Landon Clifford’s life, Camryn eulogized him with the following words:

Compassionate, loving, thoughtful, kind, and gentle. He was an amazing husband and the best father those girls could of ever asked for. It saddens me deeply that they will never get to truly know him.

The Cliffords are the model of a YouTube family, as Camryn’s first pregnancy at 16 spurred her and her husband, Landon, to start Cam&Fam in 2017. Amassing 1.2 million subscribers, the couple were a hit with the online community, breaking down stereotypes and celebrating their young family every step of the way. One could see this very clearly in the latest video posted on their channel, with Landon testing out a labor pain simulator:

This is another sad blow to the YouTube community overall as, earlier this year, lifestyle YouTuber Nicole Thea passed at the age of 24, shortly before the birth of her own child, Reign. With the celebrities on the platform tending to be younger, it’s all the more tragic when someone who’s built a following passes on unexpectedly. This was also seen in the passing of YouTube star Corey La Barrie, who was involved in a fatal car crash this past May.

Losing a family member is bad enough, but Landon Clifford’s untimely death is all the more devastating, as there was a lot of life ahead of him with his family. Landon’s ultimate legacy will be felt in the donation of his organs to those truly in need, as well as the memories Camryn will have to impart with their two daughters as they grow into young women. Hopefully, those memories will serve as a source of comfort for the young girls as they grow up. We here at CinemaBlend send our sincerest condolences to Camryn Clifford and her family in this difficult time; as well as to the many grieving fans that are reeling from the Clifford family’s loss.
