YouTuber John “TotalBiscuit” Bain Passes Away, Aged Just 33

Posted May 25, 2018 by Richard Lee Breslin in Featured, Gaming News

Today we heard of the sad news regarding the passing of popular YouTuber John Bain; better known as TotalBiscuit, aged just 33.

In October 2015 John Bain was diagnosed with bowl cancer, but despite this, he continued to fight on to work hard on his channel, his podcast and even made cameos on YouTube channels such as WWE’s Xavier Woods, UpUpDownDown.  One to never shy away from controversy and offer his unfiltered opinions, his channel generated more than 2.2 million subscribers.  He also did a lot to promote up and coming indie games on his channel, as well as offering in-depth analysis for titles on PC and more.

Just last month, Bain posted on Reddit stating that he “did not have long left” and would leave his YouTube channel to his loving wife Genna for which he said “When I leave this world, I want to leave something my family can use to help them earn,” and it’s fair to say that Bain’s legacy has more than achieved that goal.

Following the announcement of John Bain’s passing, his wife shared this poem on her Twitter account:

Whether you’re a fan of John “TotalBiscuit” Bain or not, I think we can all agree that this is a sad day for the gaming community and John will be missed by many.  We at Push-Start would like to take this opportunity to offer our condolences, wishes and pray’s  with Genna and all of John’s family and friends.
