Kitty0706 died on 25 January 2015, after having struggled with acute lymphoblastic leukemia for around three years. He was diagnosed with it on 9 May 2012, and on 24 December 2013, Kitty0706 announced that he’d received a bone marrow transplant, and that he was 100 percent healthy. However, he kept forgetting to take his medication, and on 23 January 2015 he was diagnosed with it again. The doctors gave him only a day or two to live, and there was nothing to be done to stop it this time.
Early life and education
Kitty0706 was raised in Lakewood alongside his brother, by their parents who prefer to be left out of the media’s attention, thus nothing about them is known.
He grew-up being interested in music, and wanted to learn to play the guitar, while he was also into acting, and dreamed of becoming a famous actor. In 2007 aged 13, Kitty0706 and his brother launched their YouTube channel because they wanted to access age-restricted videos, and at that point, neither planned to upload any videos onto the channel. On 14 September of the same year, Kitty0706 uploaded his debut video “True Crime: Criminal Justice: Part 1”, and as this and his following videos gained attention, he became even more interested in becoming a popular YouTuber – Kitty0706 believed that it was his video “Left 4 Farts” which helped him become popular on the video sharing platform.
Kitty0706 attended a local high school from which he matriculated in 2012, and he then chose not to pursue a college degree, but to focus on his career on the internet.
