On February 4, within 24 hours after going missing, Chris was found dead on his property in Blackfalds, Canada. The cause of death wasn’t disclosed, but it was treated as not suspicious.

With a heavy heart, Kim announced her brother’s passing on Instagram, writing:

It is with great sadness that myself and my family announce the unexpected passing of our son and brother, Chris Cattrall. At this time we ask for privacy but we want to thank you all on social media for your outpouring of love and support in this trying time.

The announcement was met with an outpouring of love and sympathy (although not all such expressions were welcome, as you may remember).

A heartfelt tribute

Now, a year after he passed away, Kim paid a touching tribute to her late brother, letting everyone know she still misses him.

The actress posted a throwback photo with Chris on the day of his passing, writing:

Thinking of Chris today and everyday. We miss you.

Her sadness and grief was relieved for a moment and she managed to produce a smile while posing for a picture with Rev. Peter Sutton.

Thank you to St Cuthbert’s Parish Minister in Edinburgh Reverend Peter Sutton and our wonderful, joyful Scottish friends for making us laugh today. Lighting a candle in memory of our brother, son, father, & husband, Christopher Adrian Alexander Cattrall. Forever in our thoughts. RIP xo
