"It's been a pleasure flagging up all these different artistes. They deserved a decent send-off. As does TIMJ, so no histrionics from me. RIP will continue until September 25th. I will be back with this feature on "God's Jukebox" at http://www.godsjukebox.com/selections/username/Rest_In_Peace/. Best wishes to all."
Daniel Lee Kyre was born on July 6th 1994 in Columbia, South Carolina, USA. He was a graduate of Dutch Fork High School, after which he and Ryan Magee formed 'Cyndago', making sketch and music videos for posting on 'YouTube'. 'Cyndago' subsequently entered into a professional collaboration with Mark Fischbach (aka 'Markiplier'), a successful American internet personality producing 'Let's Player' video games, and also a charity fundraiser.
Kyre, with 'Cyndago', moved to Los Angeles in February 2015 to work for 'Markiplier', and to pursue a continuation of their collaboration. Following the move to Los Angeles, they also hired a third member for their group, Matt Watson, who assumed most of the editing duties, to allow the others to focus more on creating content. As at September 2015, the 'Cyndago' 'YouTube' channel had over 200,000 subscribers.
In addition to creating content for 'Cyndago', Kyre was also an aspiring songwriter and guitarist, frequently posting music on 'SoundCloud', with much of the music also used for their comedy sketch videos, such as in the featured Jam. Daniel Kyre committed suicide on September 18th 2015 in his room at a house he shared with Fischbach, Magee and Watson. He was just 21. No reason for this is apparent. http://www.templeshalloranfuneralhome.com/obituaries/Daniel-Kyre/#!/Obituary
Always sad to see a tribute here for one so young.
