This page is dedicated to people with YouTube accounts who have passed away, leaving behind their channel and videos as a memory.

For example, Geriatric1927 was the most subscribed channel on YouTube in August 2006, who died on March 23, 2014 at age 86, after a long battle with an advanced type of cancer. However, some are not as lucky and die at a young age, such as Grimmie, Eddsworld, Yoteslaya and Quxxn.

Some other notable deaths are, Monty Oum, Taliajoy18, and Scott "Stoked" Yakiwckuk. They will be missed.
