Michael Stockley, known as “KiXSTAr,” was an American Rainbow Six Siege caster who started his career in 2016 as a player. After switching to becoming a commentator, he changed the whole Siege community with his passion for the game.

Yesterday, KiX’s long time friend and colleague Parker “Interro” Mackay announced on his official Twitter account that KiX passed away a few days ago and shared a statement from his family.

Even though the cause of death was never announced in the statement, Interro revealed later that KiXSTAr died due to a car crash. Also, Interro mentioned that no one else was injured or involved in the accident.

Following the death of such an iconic personality, the whole Rainbow Six Siege community was shocked and saddened. All of the players sent their condolences to KiX’s family and prayed for his soul.

Here’s the announcement from KiX’s family:

On Monday, October 11 Michael “KiXSTAr” Stockley passed away unexpectedly. He had so much planned for the future, and he was looking forward to working with so many of you.

Michael worked hard to lift up the R6 Siege community, and in turn so many of you lifted him up as well. We are grateful for the love and support that we have experienced from so many of you. Keep it going, pay it forward, and keep lifting each other up.”

Interro revealed KiX’s cause of death:

“After speaking with his family they wanted to share that Michael passed away doing what he loved second most in this world: driving. He was by himself & no one else was injured or involved. While it’s understandable to be curious please respect the family’s privacy. Thank you.”

Furthermore, Rogue’s LeonGids shred in tears about KiX’s passing. “I’m lost for words for what to say,” he wrote on Twitter. Kix has been a good friend of mine for years and helped me rise up to the big stages when I was 17 to help get my name out there. We always had a good laugh at LANs and great time in game. I really don’t know what to say, I feel like crying.”

I can’t believe this has happened, after looking up at him at the beginning of my siege time and now to this,” CTZN said. “He will be missed by all of us in the r6 community. Fly high kix, We will all miss you.”

“I don’t even know what to say man, Kix was one of the most supporting people to me when I started as a pro this is completely heartbreaking,” Kantoraketti seemed devastated about the news. “Rest in peace, Kix.”

“This is so tragic. Kix was one of the nicest and most social guys I met at events,” Spacestation Gaming’s Bosco wrote. “Always willing to have a nice convo and giving friendly hellos to everyone he’s even just passing by. A good soul gone way too soon, you’ll be missed.”

Another caster, Milosh also paid his tribute to his colleague. “Kix was our colleague, our neighbor, our friend, our brother, our family,” he said. “Michael will forever be in our hearts & minds, a star like no other. Rest in Peace, thank you for 5 years of friendship and love. I can’t wait to sing along with you again.”
