“For the past 20 months we have been fortunate to have Michael home with us during lockdown, casting and streaming from his bedroom, sharing meals with us, spending time with extended family this summer and allowing all of us to know him better. He had been away for so long, traveling the world and meeting so many of you in the R6 Siege community. He came home happier and stronger, and for this we are grateful. When he ditched everything to streamer in Poland, alone for the first time, some of you agreed to put enough money together to buy a plane ticket for me, his mother, to see him.
The show of support was so overwhelming for him that he interrupted the live and started to cry. To all of you who have given a hand to a young person in need, we are grateful. There were times when he invited me to sit down and attend his lives. We had some great conversations and enjoyed ourselves. As an audience many of you have let me know that I was welcome there, and I am grateful for that. At tournaments and events we could see how respected he was for his talent and dedication. As parents we were proud of his hard work and his determination to give the best of himself to all of you. Michael “KiXSTAR” Stockley passed away unexpectedly on Monday 11 October. He had so many plans for the future and he was looking forward to working with so many of you. Michael has worked hard to revive the R6 Siege community and, in turn, many of you have raised him too. We are grateful for the love and support we have received from so many of you. Keep it up, keep lifting each other up. “
