Mississippi-based TikTok star Bobby Moudy, known for posting videos of his family’s hijinks on the social media platform, has died by suicide at the age of 46, according to a statement released by his family.
Moudy, who had more than 350,000 followers on TikTok, was a father of three children, Kaytlin, Maddox “Max,” and Charleigh, whom he shared with his wife Jennifer.
Family Friend Launches GoFundMe for Emotional and Financial Crisis
According to a GoFundMe campaign initiated by a family friend, Moudy’s wife and children are struggling with an emotional and financial crisis following his death, as he was their rock.
Mandy Castle, the organizer of the campaign, described Moudy as a loving husband, father, brother, and friend who was weighed down by financial pressures.
The campaign has raised over $60,000 of its initial $75,000 goal as of Friday morning.
Moudy, who died on April 28 at his home in Brandon, Mississippi, was an avid outdoorsman and an Ole Miss fanatic.
He enjoyed showing his support for his kids at their sporting events and often posted videos of their various hijinks on TikTok.
Fond Memories of a Contagiously Enthusiastic Life
In a TikTok posted two days before his death, Moudy shared a video of one of his daughters pretending to be an “annoying fan” on the sidelines.
His videos were often filled with laughter and his children’s playful antics. “He approached life with a contagious enthusiasm and a smile,” his obituary said.
His daughter, Kaytlin, described him as “the most amazing dad, brother, uncle, and friend” who had a significant impact not only on his family but also on those around him.
She added that he will forever be remembered, and they are counting down the days until they see him again.
Successful Sales Career
In addition to his TikTok stardom, Moudy worked in sales and had a successful career in that field spanning 20 years, according to his obituary.
He had been married to Jennifer since 2004.
Moudy’s family has not yet announced the details of his memorial service, which will be held at a later date.
