An obituary from Molnar Funeral Home was widely shared by the community, leading to news suggesting the death of Joseph Wilson, better known as Mitten Squad, a popular YouTube content creator for Skyrim and Fallout. Wilson was known to be fighting alcohol-induced pancreatitis, and since the news of his passing spread among fans, tributes and heartfelt condolences have begun to pour in.
Mitten Squad was a popular YouTuber with over 1.4 million followers who made unique videos, mostly about video games developed by Bethesda. Memorial Discord channels were created following the sharing of his obituary on his official Discord server, as his content had a profound impact on many community members.
What Happened To Mitten Squad?
An important announcement was made by Mitten Squad in March 2021 when they announced an indefinite break from YouTube. His life and relationships had taken a hit due to his continuous struggle with alcoholism, which was the driving force behind this decision. Recognizing the seriousness of his drinking problem, he sincerely hoped for a recovery.
More bad news came in later updates; he had pancreatitis, which was directly related to his addiction problems, so his health had already taken a nosedive. Fans are worried about Mitten Squad’s well-being and eagerly await any update regarding him, as he has been noticeably absent from the platform, despite occasional uploads.
His sudden death at the age of 27 was announced, one year after he initially shared a photo from a hospital bed, which had his fans very worried about his well-being. Given that the YouTuber had admitted that he could have died during that moment, it is especially concerning.
Nothing better than spending Thanksgiving at the hospital after being forced into arm/leg restraints and put into a fucking diaper against your will.
Im okay all things considered though. They said I blew a .351 BAC and could’ve gone into a coma or even died. So that’s fun. pic.twitter.com/Tr2KEbepS8

Mitten Squad has previously been candid about his struggles with alcoholism. He went on X in May of this year to reveal that he had pancreatitis as a result of his heavy drinking. Another thing he said was that the illness’s pain was “indescribable.”
Little bit of a life update: My drinking has gotten so out of control that I had to go to the emergency room again yesterday. I got some bad news there. Turns out i’ve got pancreatitis. The frequent vomiting sucks but the pain is indescribable and nothing seems to make it stop.

In addition, last month, Joseph shared yet another health update to calm his fans’ nerves after they had grown worried about his silence. The irony is that Mitten Squad attached a Reddit reply he made in response to his X post about his efforts to control his alcoholism.

Mitten Squad was such a huge inspiration for me back when I solely made Fallout content. It really really sucks to hear of his passing. He was truly a talented and unique creator.
