Along with Ryker, his fellow YouTubers, Alexey Andriyovych Lyakh and Megan Scraper also passed away.

Ryker's girlfriend posted this emotional tribute on her Instagram after receiving the news of his death. 

 

Grief seems to bring everything to a halt. What was once possible seems irrelevant. The schedule is cleared, the mundane ignored. One moment a wave of catastrophic emotions, the next a cavern of emptiness. Death is not a request to stop living, it is a request for loving. It calls us to see fully what is in front of us. To see what needs healing. To see those for whom our hearts would break if we did not speak the words that need speaking. It asks us to tend to one another. To value this moment here and now. To face our own ephemerality. Death violently shakes us awake, time and time again. Words by @heyheatherobscura. . The only words I have right now to share are from my dear soul sister Heather. May we all send prayers to their souls as they transition.

The Instagram post talks about Alissa's grief and she shares an excerpt from storyteller Heather Obscura. 

"Grief seems to bring everything to a halt.
What was once possible seems irrelevant.
The schedule is cleared, the mundane ignored.
One moment a wave of catastrophic emotions, the next a cavern of emptiness.
Death is not a request to stop living, it is a request for loving
It calls us to see fully what is in front of us. 
To see what needs healing. 
To see those for whom our hearts would break if we did not speak the words that need speaking. 
It asks us to tend to one another. 
To value this moment here and now. 
To face our own ephemerality. 
Death violently shakes us awake, time and time again.

The only words I have right now to share are from my dear soul sister Heather. 
May we all send prayers to their souls as they transition."

The post is devastating to read. It's clear that Alissa is reeling from the news that her boyfriend has suddenly passed away.
