Ablegamers founder Steven Spohn was quick to share his love for Puppers in a quote retweet.
“I’m sad the world lost a good disabled gamer today. A gamer with ALS, Puppers was a force in the DbD community. His LITF event raised over 270k to fight ALS. A true gaming champion by all metrics. My heart goes out to his friends, family, and community on this very difficult day.”
The Twitter page for Dead By Daylight, Puppers’ main game, also paid respects to the fallen streamer.
“Thank you for finding a home in The Fog. Your joy and love made it a better place, and it was an honor to be comfy with you. Puppers was, and always will be, one of the brightest lights in The Fog. Everyone that light touched is forever changed by having known him,” they said.
Thousands of others replied to the original tweet as well.
“Rest well. We’ll always keep you in our hearts,” one fan replied.
Another said: “May this beacon of light shine forever in our hearts. Rest easy Puppers.”
Due to the sudden decline in Puppers’ health, the community has created a GoFundMe to help cover the cost of funeral expenses.
His death comes just two months after the passing of TikToker Harrison Gilks who had been fighting a form of pediatric cancer.
