Hollywood’s Comedian actor Nick Cordero who contracted Coronavirus, has died at the age of 41.
Cardero’s wife, Amanda Kloots confirmed on Instagram that her husband lost his battle with COVID-19.
“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,” she said.
“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 wrote further.
The actor’s battle with the deadly virus had lasted for up to 95 days and the complications had even led to his leg getting amputated.
The Broadway actor was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario and moved to New York where he pursued his acting career.
He also achieved a Tony Award in 2014 over his role in ‘Bullets Over Broadway’.
He had met his wife, the fitness trainer, during their performance in Bullets over Broadway and had tied the knot in 2017.
Cordero due to his diagnosis, suffered a lung infection that further deteriorated his health.
Prior to this, he underwent a leg amputation surgery due to blood clotting, as well as a tracheotomy to support his breathing.
According to Kloots, Cordero showed small signs of improvement but stopped responding after little to no success.
