Nick Cordero, a Tony-nominated stage and screen actor, has passed away at age 41.

Sunday on Instagram, Nick’s wife Amanda Kloots revealed the devastating news that her husband died from coronavirus complications that morning. The couple share 1-year-old son Elvis Eduardo.

“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,” Amanda wrote.

“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,” she added.

In her post, Kloots gives thanks to Nick’s physician, Dr. David Ng, for being “a diamond in the rough.”

“To Nick’s extraordinary doctor, Dr. David Ng, you were my positive doctor!” Amanda exclaimed. “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.”

Overall, Amanda is grateful for the outpouring of love and support her family has received.

“I will love you forever and always my sweet man,” she concluded.

You’re a diamond in the rough. ⠀ ⠀ I cannot begin to thank everyone enough for the outpour of love , support and help we’ve received these last 95 days. You have no idea how much you lifted my spirits at 3pm everyday as the world sang Nicks song, Live Your Life. We sang it to him today, holding his hands. As I sang the last line to him, “they’ll give you hell but don’t you light them kill your light not without a fight. Live your life,” I smiled because he definitely put up a fight. I will love you forever and always my sweet man. ❤️

After being diagnosed with COVID-19 in March, Amanda reported that her husband was in critical condition and being treated with dialysis and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).

Nick’s leg was amputated in April, and he suffered major lung damage in May.

Though Nick had regained consciousness on May 13, he eventually succumbed to his illness after being hospitalized for over 90 days.

Born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, Nick appeared in a number of Broadway productions including “Rock of Ages,” “Waitress,” and “Bullets Over Broadway,” for which he earned a Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actor in a Musical.

He also appeared in television shows including “Blue Bloods” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” as well as movies such as “Mob Town” and “Inside Game.”

Our condolences go out to his family and loved ones for their tragic loss.
