YouTube star Landon Clifford dies aged 19 after six days in a coma

YouTube star Landon Clifford has died aged 19 after spending six days in a coma.

The teen, whose wife Camryn announced the heartbreaking news, suffered a brain injury according to the official GoFundMe page set up for his family.

Landon and Camryn made family vlogs on their channel Cam&Fam, with the pair sharing their two children Collette Briar, two, and newborn Delilah Rose.

Camryn penned a heartbreaking message on Instagram, writing: ‘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. 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. 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 isle. He was meant to die old with me. Words can not come close to describe the pain I feel [sic].

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.

Sharing a snap of her daughters on her Instagram Stories, she added: ‘The best parts of him are still alive in them.

‘Whenever I miss him I just give my girls a big hug.’


A GoFundMe page has also been started for Landon’s family, with fans passing the $20,000 (£15,000) target in a matter of days to pay for his medical expenses and funeral.

At the time of writing, the total stands at more than $27,000 (£20,000).

Landon and Camryn began their YouTube channel in 2017, after their relationship began in 2015, with their first video being a gender reveal for their first daughter.

They got married at age 18 last year, welcoming baby Delilah just three months ago.

The couple built up a following of more than 1.2 million, with their last video being posted two months ago.
