Death is the heaviest toll a heart can ever bear. Grief counseling is widely advocated, but sometimes, the mourning person doesn't even cry for help. Same can be debated in Kristoff St. John's case.

The New York-born actor was only 8 when he bagged his first debut in the sitcom series That's My Mama. Fast forward 39 years, he was currently playing the character of Neil Winters on CBS-TV's The Young and the Restless, the number one rated drama for the past 2.5 decades. The eight Emmy award nominee was a full measure of a mature artist, striving towards infinite success with his movie projects.

Expiry at 52

On Sunday night, February 4, Kristoff was found lifeless in his Woodland Hills house in Los Angeles, California, by a friend who came by to check on him. Paramedics who were summoned to the scene pronounced him dead.

He was 52. His demise follows the death of his 24-year-old son, Julian, who took his own life in 2014. He'd given up on his long battle with schizophrenia. Only 2 weeks earlier, the heartbroken dad had expressed how much he missed him.

According to TMZ's initial report gained from the police statement, there was no evidence of foul play, and the cause of his passing is possible alcohol overdose. St. John is survived by his two ex-wives and two daughters, Paris and Lola. He also left behind his fiancée of five months, Russian model Kseniya Mikhaleva. Such a traumatic loss!
