Broadway Star Nick Cordero Dies at 41 After Over 90 Days in Hospital from Coronavirus Complications
Broadway star Nick Cordero has died after a months-long battle with the coronavirus. He was 41.
Cordero, whose Broadway credits include Waitress and Rock of Ages, died on Sunday morning at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he had been hospitalized for over 90 days.
He is survived by his wife Amanda Kloots, whom he wed in September 2017, and their 1-year-old son Elvis Eduardo.
"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 everyones 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," she wrote on Instagram Sunday.
"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. Youre a diamond in the rough," Kloots continued.
and his leg being amputated. that was sad but at least he was alive .
but hearing this now is really difficult.
But thought he was getting stronger. Very sad to hear.
If he was going to need a double lung transplant, then it sounds like his lungs were in horrible shape.
I am frightened for everyone. I don't think I could go through what this poor man went through. I wouldn't want to. But if you're not in that situation, I don't think you can say for sure.
The country is focused on the spread and the deaths. The suffering is awful too.
I forgot to do it today. Im so sad. I was concerned when she mentioned that they were removing a pacemaker yesterday. Awful. Covid sucks..
I had no idea who he was up until about six weeks ago, but have been reading his wife's updates on an almost daily basis. He fought so hard, but at some point I don't know how the human body recovers from everything his endured.
and there are 130,000+ more stories every bit as sad and grievous it didn't have to be this way
This virus is relentless. And it makes me so angry that there are people in this country out partying and spreading the virus. The idiots who are ripping face masks off store employees and attacking restaurant workers need to be arrested and sent to jail. I live in Texas. Im tired of people spreading the virus because they think its a hoax or it doesnt matter or they are supporting an evil man who cant face reality. Tell those excuses to the families of those who have died a horrible death.
who made it big on Broadway. So very, very sorry that Covid hit him with all its evil might.
Just yesterday I thought about him and wondered how he was doing. He won't see his son grow up.
for like a month. Complete torture.
How horrible. And such a talented man with a lovely family.b
He was much too young. I hope this wil wake some of those idiots up who think that only old people get sick and die from this virus and help them to realize that they are vulnerable too.
RIP, Nick and my condolences to his family.
All the sadness right now is killing me. I know it is horrific for everyone. He fought such a hard battle.
Im so sorry...
Father in Alabama he called it the covid hoax. She is 26, very progressive & was home schooled by that nut. Luckily as soon as she moved out she figured out he's been full of shit all those years.
Since we hadn't heard anything recently... so sad. My condolences to his wife, baby and family. Taken too soon.
This is just heartbreaking!
So heartbreaking to think that a little boy is going to grow up without his daddy. And it most likely could have been prevented if someone had only done their job.
Things like this just take me down. I was so lucky to have my dad for 56 years. This little boy is so young he won't even have any memories of his dad.
