On Nov. 26, Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of the hit show “Spongebob Squarepants” passed away due to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Hillenburg was originally diagnosed with ALS in March of 2017.

His body was later cremated the day after his death, and his ashes were spread about 500 yards off the coast of California, where he envisioned Spongebob would live if Spongebob was real.

A Stonybrook Elementary School student said, “Spongebob was my favorite show to watch with my brother and father. I am sad that we can’t see new episodes.”

A Kinnelon High School student said, “It’s a shame that someone who impacted my childhood so much is now gone.”

Another Kinnelon High School student said, “I will miss the creator that made me laugh when I was a kid.”

People from around the world were in a state of mourning due to his tragic passing. At the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Hillenburg was honored and recognized, along with receiving the Winsor McCay award at the Annie Awards. Even though Hillenburg has left us at such a young age, his legacy will live on for generations to come.
