Caleb Logan Bratayley’s family is allowing fans to grieve with them. They are going to live-stream the 13-year-old YouTube vlogger’s memorial service, they announced on Instagram.
“We'll have more definitive answers in the coming weeks, but ask that you help us celebrate his life instead of focus on his death,” the post reads. “Due to an outpouring of support and people's hope to be part of his memorial, we have decided to live-stream the ceremony tomorrow at 8 p.m. EDT.”
Caleb, whose real name was Caleb LeBlanc, died suddenly Thursday in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. The live stream post also states that the teenage YouTube star’s death was caused by “an undetected medical condition.” Previously, the family had only stated that of “natural causes” were to blame.
“Yesterday at 7:08PM Caleb Logan Bratayley passed away of natural causes,” his parents, Billy and Katie LeBlanc, wrote on Instagram Friday. “This has come as a shock to all of us. Words cannot describe how much we will miss him. His incredibly funny, loving and wonderful spirit made us all fall in love with him as a YouTuber, friend, brother and son.”
Caleb shared a YouTube channel called “Bratayley” with his sisters, Annie, 10, and Hayley, 7, where they made family-friendly vlogs. The channel has more than 1.6 million subscribers and their videos have topped 1 billion views. The family, who joined YouTube in 2010, typically post new videos every day, but the vloggers will be taking a break to mourn the loss of Caleb. But they did upload a 21-minute tribute video to the teenager on Sunday. Watch below:
