On Monday afternoon, the CBS network released a statement about Kristoff St. John’s death. It said, “He was a very talented actor and an even better person. For those of us who were fortunate enough to work with him for the last 27 years, he was a beloved friend whose smile and infectious laugh made every day on set a joy and made audiences love him. On behalf of the cast and crew, CBS and Sony Pictures Television, we offer our heartfelt sympathy to his family and loved ones, especially his two daughters, Paris and Lola.”
Several of Kristoff’s fans have commented on the post with, “What sad, sad news for all of his fans, but devastating news for his family! He will be sorely missed. Prayers to all of his family for strength to get through this difficult time.”
