    It's with great regret that I post this. Apparently, Rodger Swan or as some may know him as "Iwate Swan", passed away a few days ago due to Acute Pancreatitis.

    There are a number of Japan YouTube personalities, Rodger was one of them I watched regularly.

    His last video was posted just a few days before he died and you can see his channel at this link:

    http://www.youtube.com/rodgerswan

    I don't have any other information other than what is already publicly available.

    My regards go out to his family and friends, both here in Japan and back in America.

    Godspeed Rodger.

    Oh wow!

    I have seen his videos too. He was something like 23? and about to get engaged?

    That is a sad turn of events... :( Best wishes to his family and would-bride-to-be.

    :( This is not a good way to start the week!

    At first, I did not realize who you were talking about until I clicked the link. That's completely shocking! I remember watching his videos when he first started.

    Tokyocooney is one that I watch fairly regularly, albeit, his updates have been slow lately. http://www.youtube.com/tokyocooney - He's actually got a video up for Rodger's death.

    There are a number of people posting videos about Rodger, there's also a forum somewhere about long distance relationships, where he was known as 'Luckiestswan'.

    Wow, Just so sad.... I can't begin to imagine how Rebecca (his gf) feels. :( :( Well, no to mention his family of course!

    Just wow.....

    Over the weekend, I saw posts flying around about this. Since I live in the states, I'm subscribed to a number of YouTube and blog accounts from people living in Japan. His last video, I saw when he released it. Then, I come back to find that he's dead?! Quite a shock!

    I never had exchanged emails or had direct contact with Rodger but I still feel like I lost a really close friend! :(

    RIP Rodger, you will be missed for sure.

    I don't mean to keep re-hashing what's already been said, but here's a few threads from the LDR forum where he used to post a lot:

    Thanks for sharing those links Cake. He sounded very upbeat and felt like he had a lot of positive things to look forward to.

    There are so many links flying around on Google now about Rodger, incredible.

    No problem. :) I spent some reading through other peoples' posts around the internet, hard to believe he that much impact in so many places. I guess that's what makes you famous; when you die.
