Just two weeks ago, the actor retweeted a passage about grieving the loss of a child.

As a lover of daytime television, it will be so strange not seeing Kristoff. He was a household name in the soaps world. Although I never watched Y&R, I always thought he was so debonair and handsome. Gone too soon.
