I woke up to a shocker this morning with the news of the death of Kristoff St. John. Many of us knew Kristoff St. John as  the character Neal who was a main character of The Young And The Restless since 1991.

I remember watching him with my grandmother and mom back in Mississippi and I used to be glued to the television when him and Drew would go at it and eventually when him and Olivia were a thing. Ironically Kristoff lost his son to Suicide back in 2014 and while details are still sketchy about his death. Many believe he never fully recovered over his sons death.

He threatened to commit suicide himself back in 2017 and was placed under watch for a few days following the encounter. This is sad news for the entertainment industry and he will be missed by the soap fans and beyond.
