Actor Nick Cordero has died after battling COVID-19. He was 41 years old.
His wife Amanda Kloots wrote on Instagram: “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,” she said. Kloots then added, “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.”
Fox News reported that during Cordero’s hospitalization, Kloots sent him videos of her and their son Elvis every day. She also urged friends and fans to join a daily sing-a-long.
Cordero’s Battle With COVID-19
Cordero went into the emergency room on March 30th. He “had a succession of health setbacks, including mini-strokes, blood clots, septic infections, a tracheostomy and a temporary pacemaker implanted,” Fox News reported.
In Kloots’s post, she also acknowledged Cordero’s “extraordinary” doctor, Dr. David Ng. “There are not many doctors like you. Kind, smart, compassionate, assertive and always eager to listen to my crazy ideas or call yet another doctor for me for a second opinion. You’re a diamond in the rough,” she said.
Additionally, she thanked everyone “for the outpour of love, support and help we’ve received these last 95 days.”
“I will love you forever and always my sweet man,” she then concluded in her post.
