When Kristoff St. John brought Neil Winters to The Young and the Restless it added a whole new side to the show. Viewers loved the character and have continued to watch him on their screens for nearly three decades. His co-stars are remembering him today as they mourn the loss of their friend.

Eric Braeden revealed he had no words to describe his feelings after finding out about Kristoff St. John’s passing. He called him his “brotha” in his tweet, with a photo of himself alongside St. John and Daniel Goddard who plays Cane on the show.

Doug Davidson delivered a two-part tweet that described the kind of man Kristoff St. John was. Davidson was recently fired from his role as Paul on The Young and the Restless during the Mal Young scandal. St. John talked about it on Twitter at the time, sharing his support for his friend and colleague.

Melody Thomas Scott tweeted about being brokenhearted at the loss of Kristoff St. John, revealing how she and her colleagues on the show loved him very much, and many of them were some of his biggest supporters following the death of his son Julian in 2014.
