Brandon Ashur started his career on YouTube under the name of “Bashurverse” and soon became a favorite Minecraft streamer for most fans of the game with his “The Legend of the Hobo” series.

In 2017, he changed his nickname to “ToastyTime” and then “Toasty” and started streaming on Twitch up until a few months earlier.

On August 14, Brandon Ashur revealed that he had tested positive for COVID-19 a week earlier, and would be hospitalized. A few days after that, he revealed that he had been sent to the ICU and had been put on a ventilator, but he still kept updating fans every day through his Twitter account.

In her Facebook post about her brother’s death, Anesa Ashur said:

My brother fought COVID, and unfortunately lost the battle. I cannot believe this is happening… He was amazing. He is amazing.

There are so many things I could say, but I don’t think I could even put our lives into words if I wanted to,” she continued. “Why is this beast so terrible? Why did it have to get you? You have faced so many challenges in your 36 years, never would I imagine we would lose you to a pandemic.

You are one of the strongest people I know, and pushed through no matter what the internet said, no matter what people wanted to think… you proved how amazing of a soul you are. I love you, to the moon and back.

Although the YouTube channel of Toasty, a.k.a. Bashurverse, has over 1.5 million subscribers, his last video on YouTube was published in July 2020.
