Canadian broadway star Nick Cordero dies after COVID-19 fight

Nick Cordero dies at 41

Canadian broadway star Nick Cordero has died at the age of 41, following a months-long battle with COVID-19. 

His wife Amanda Kloots posted the news on her Instagram account that Cordero had passed away early Sunday morning, surrounded by his family. 

"God has another angel in heaven now," she wrote on Instagram. 

"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."

Kloots also expressed her gratitude for Dr. David Ng, who cared for Cordero during his ordeal, and the outpouring of support the family has received since April. 

"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 [let] 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."

Cordero was first admitted to hospital in April with what seemed to be a case of pneumonia, but after multiple tests turned out to be COVID-19.

He was in a medically-induced coma for more than a month but came out of it prior to his death.
