Tony Award-nominated actor Nick Cordero has passed on at age 41 after a long battle with complications from COVID-19.

Broadway and TV actor spent months in intensive care being treated for the coronavirus and lost his left leg from complications.

His wife, Amanda Kloots announced the death of the 41-year-old in an Instagram post, saying;

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. Elvis (their one year old son) and I will miss him in everything we do, everyday.

Kloots also paid tribute to Cordero’s doctor, David;

To Nick’s 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.

She then thanked everyone for ‘the outpour of love, support and help we’ve received these last 95 days.’

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. ❤️

Kloots who documented her husband’s struggle with the coronavirus on social media, said he battled the disease for 95 days.

Many fans rallied round him and a GoFundMe page to pay for medical expenses raised over $600,000.

Cordero who entered the emergency room on March 30 had a succession of health setbacks including mini-strokes, blood clots, sepsis infections, a tracheostomy and a temporary pacemaker implant.

After nearly three weeks in intensive care, Cordero’s doctors were forced to amputate his right leg because his blood flow had been impeded by a clot, another dangerous coronavirus complication.

Cordero had been comatose for months but regained consciousness in early May, and was able to move and communicate only through his eyes.

According to Kloots, he had lost 65 pounds (29 kilograms) from muscle atrophy and was still unable to move or talk by mid-June.

He was awaiting a double lung transplant before he died on Sunday.

Cordero was known for his roles in the musicals “Waitress,” “A Bronx Tale” and “Bullets Over Broadway,” for which he was nominated for a Tony award.

He also appeared in several episodes of ‘Blue Bloods and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’, and had a role in the 2017 film ‘Going in Style’.

May his soul Rest In Peace.
