Tears were shed all over the world this weekend when it was confirmed that Broadway star Nick Cordero had lost his battle with COVID-19 after a fierce three-month battle.

Cordero, who was just 41 years old, was admitted to hospital on March 30, ten days after being diagnosed with coronavirus.

Sadly, his condition deteriorated over the course of the following weeks and he passed away at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Sunday.

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. ⠀ To Nicks extraordinary doctor, Dr. David Ng, you were my positive doctor! 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. ⠀ ⠀ 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. ❤

One celebrity to speak out on Cordero’s heartbreaking death is Zach Braff. The pair worked together on Bullets Over Broadway in 2014, with Cordero earning a Tony Award nomination for Beast Featured Actor in a Musical for the role.

Braff was quick to pay his respects to his friend, stating that he had never known a kinder person.

“Nick Cordero passed at 11:40 am today with his wife and mother by his side. I have honestly never known a kinder person,” Zach wrote.

Nick Cordero passed at 11:40am today with his wife and mother by his side. I have honestly never known a kinder person. But Covid doesn’t care about the purity of your soul, or the goodness in your heart. The last thing he ever texted me was to look out for his wife and one year old son, Elvis. I promise the world they will never want for anything. I feel so incredibly grateful I got to have Nick Cordero enter my life. Rest In Peace. Rest in Power.

We’ve gone through so much change in the last year. Our first child, a move across the country, our first house, car, new jobs, new everything. It’s been a lot to go through, and challenging to be sure. During the highs and lows whenever I look at you words can’t describe how lucky I feel to be on this journey with you. The future’s uncertain, the path not always clear, but with you by my side I walk with no fear. I love you @amandakloots. Happy Valentines Day. ❤💫
