Nick Cordero's wife, Amanda Kloots, announced on Instagram that he has died from COVID-19 and related complications at age 41.

"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."

The Tony Award-nominated Broadway actor had been hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for more than three months after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

Nick, who was also known for his recurring roles on Blue Bloods and Law & Order: SVU, had started stem cell treatment to help his recovery, Amanda shared in recent Instagram story.

Nick is survived by his wife, Amanda, and their 1-year-old son, Elvis.
