It's been five months since Kristoff St. John's death. The American actor was found unresponsive at his home on February 3, and he was only 52.

The official cause of death was reported as "hypertrophic heart disease" which happened due to the alleged alcohol overdose. Kristoff was survived by his ex-wife and two daughters, though he followed his only son's demise.

On July 15, the Young & the Restless star would be 53 years old. He would be enjoying his brilliant birthday with his Russian fiancée, who couldn't come to the USA to say the final goodbye due to visa issues.

Kristoff St. John's co-stars and family members have not forgotten his 53rd birthday anniversary and hence, commemorated him by paying heartwarming and touching tributes.

The Y & R actor Daniel Goddard, Kristoff's friend, posted a photo of his headstone and wrote:

#HappyBirthday Stoff.... not a day goes by that we don’t miss you! ❤️🙏

The actor's former spouse, Mia St. John, also paid a heartfelt tribute, saying, "He’ll be missed & loved always...till we meet again 🕊" and posting some pictures from his grave.

The Hollywood star was laid next to his late son Julian who committed suicide due to severe mental health issues several years ago.

Kristoff's close friend Eric Braeden believes he died from a broken heart as he was bearing pain over the loss of his child. St. John couldn't cope with such trauma.

Happy birthday, Kristoff St. John and rest in peace!
