Ryan McHenry isn’t a name you might know.
But Ryan Gosling sure is. The former Ryan is the creator of the meme you probably know and love, “Ryan Gosling won’t eat his cereal.” We’ve all laughed at it at some point while it made a new round on Facebook or some other social media.
Something you might also not know: McHenry had been fighting bone cancer for the past two years, and I am sad to tell you he lost his battle on Sunday.
To honor the creator of one of his most popular memes, Gosling posted a touching and perfect tribute on Vine.
Gosling raised a spoon in McHenry’s honor and finally ate his cereal.
McHenry, a Scottish filmmaker, posted his last Vine 11 days ago, and in it, he continued his battle with Gosling over the spoon, saying, “Ryan Gosling loves cereal but still won’t eat it.”
Gosling, along with his video, tweeted out a heartfelt message saying, “My heart goes out to all of Ryan McHenry’s family and friends. Feel very lucky to have been apart [sic] of his life in some small way.”
My heart goes out to all of Ryan McHenry's family and friends. Feel very lucky to have been apart of his life in some small way.

Our deepest sympathies are with the meme maker’s family and friends.
