Broadway star Nick Cordero has died at the age of 41 after battling complications from coronavirus for several months.
The Tony Award-nominated actor who was popularly known for his roles in “Rock of Ages,” “Waitress,” “Bullets Over Broadway” and “A Bronx Tale The Musical,” died on Sunday at Cedars-Sinai hospital after more than 90 days in the hospital.
Amanda Kloots announced the sad news via her Instagram page. She wrote: “God has another angel in heaven now. My darling husband passed away this morning. He was surrounded in love by his family, singing and praying as he gently left this earth.
“I am in disbelief and hurting everywhere. My heart is broken as I cannot imagine our lives without him. Nick was such a bright light. He was everyone’s friend, loved to listen, help and especially talk. He was an incredible actor and musician. He loved his family and loved being a father and husband. Elvis and I will miss him in everything we do, everyday.”
Cordero’s death comes nearly four months after he was admitted to the hospital with suspected pneumonia and spent three months in the intensive care unit.
Cordero suffered lung infections and septic shock, he had his right leg amputated and required a temporary pacemaker for his heart that has since been removed.
