Soap Opera actor Kristoff St. John’s death came as a shock to everyone. Though an autopsy was performed, the cause of death still remains unclear. The body of the deceased actor has been returned to his family.
As per the close sources, Kristoff’s body will rest next to the grave of his late son, Julian St. John, who tragically died following a suicide in 2014. The 24-year-old’s body rests in Oaks Memorial Park in Westlake Village, California.

Initial investigations have widened the facts that the 52-years-of-age actor was confronting with depression following his son’s unexpected demise. Back in 2017, Kristoff was hospitalized under psychiatric evaluation after he threatened to kill himself with a gun—some two years after Julian’s death.
Besides, the late actor was present in the UCLA Medical Center following a depression attack earlier this year. The sources also have indicated the use of alcohol as a probable factor of his death.
Young & Restless Pays Tribute!
After the unfortunate incident, The Young And The Restless team was completely devastated. Amidst that, the show paid an emotional tribute to Kristoff with a short behind the scene clips at the end of the broadcast.
The footage began with the former flashing out the significance of the show,
I’m one of the brothas on ‘The Young and the Restless,’ I’m one of the sons. I’m one of the family members. I was there. Yeah, man, Neil Winters was an integral part.
The last part of the clip saw Kristoff addressing the audiences with,
Thank you for sharing in this adventure, this mighty ship that has sailed for so long. I love you.
The 90 seconds-long video got the fans buzzing with criticism for what they mentioned the show’s underwhelming tribute.
The Young And The Restless took over Twitter to remember the deceased actor.
