YouTube star Landon Clifford, who starred in the channel Cam & Fam with his wife and children, has died at the age of 19.

Landon’s wife Camryn announced her husband’s passing on Instagram, where she wrote: “August 13th 2020 was Landon’s last day being the best dad and husband he could be.”

According to a GoFundMe set up for the family, Landon, a father of two, suffered a brain injury and spent six days in a coma before his death on 19 August.

In the statement shared to Instagram, Camryn wrote: “After spending the following six 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 have ever asked for,” Camryn continued. “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."

In the emotional post, Camryn also expressed all of the things her husband was supposed to do, including make it to his next birthday and walk his daughters down the aisle at their weddings.

"He was meant to die old with me," she wrote. "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."

The couple had been married since 2019 and share two daughters, Collette Briar, two, and Delilah Rose, who was born in May.

On YouTube, where they had more than 1.29m subscribers, Landon and Camryn documented their lives as a family, starting with the birth of their first daughter when they were both 16.

Their most recent video, titled: "Teen Dad Tries Labour Pain Simulation!" and uploaded two months ago, was viewed more than 630,000 times.

On Saturday, Camryn shared an Instagram post showing her wearing black and holding hands with friends with the caption: "Today we celebrate his life."
