Infosolution.biz – Minecraft streamer and content creator Technoblade has died after a long battle with stage four cancer, his family announced today in a public statement and video.
Techno previously revealed that he had been diagnosed with cancer last August and was sporadically updating his community about his situation while continuing to receive treatment and create content on YouTube.
In a video posted on June 30, Techno’s father recounts a final message, posthumously titled “so old nerd,” written for such an occasion. It’s filled to the brim with dry and often dark humor-making signatures, but it also acts as one final ‘thank you’ to everyone who’s supported Minecraft’s star over the years.
“Thank you all for supporting my content over the years. If I had another 100 lives, I think I’d choose to be a Technoblade again any time. Because those were the happiest years of my life,” said Techno.
“I hope you guys enjoy my content and I made some of you laugh. I wish you all a long, prosperous, and happy life because I love you. Technoblades out.”
In his message, Techno, who reveals his real name is Alex, talks about how money from merch and other “buying and selling” over the past year was used to send his brothers and sisters off to college, if they wanted to leave, along with thanking his viewers for giving him the moment. -happy moments—while a slideshow of pictures showing her at various points of her treatment is displayed on the screen.
Following Techno’s final message, his father detailed how he originally planned to write and shoot the video himself before his death, but his deteriorating health and other factors prevented it from happening. According to his father, he wrote the message from bed and died about eight hours later.
“He was the most amazing kid anyone could ever ask for,” said Technoblade’s dad. “I miss Technoblade. Thanks to all of you, to everything. You mean a lot to him.”
The Technoblade family will continue to operate its merchandise store, with all proceeds from orders donated to its charity of choice, The Sarcoma Foundation of America, as they want to “continue to spread the message.” This includes, in the most Techoblade fashion ever, launching a collection of “so old nerds” celebrating his life.
