Young and the Restless – Family and Friends Mourn Kristoff St John

Kristoff St John’s sudden passing has affected family, castmates, and fans alike. As Y&R fans know, the actor battled depression for years after his son’s suicide back in 2014. By the time a friend found the actor home alone, paramedics reported that he had already passed on.

Some initial report say that the Young and the Restless actor was drinking that night and in 2017, his ex-wife cautioned police that he was threatening suicide. We’ll provide an update once the official report is released, but no doubt, depression over his son Julian St John’s death continued to haunt him.

Kristoff leaves behind his ex-wife Mia St John and his fiancee Kseniya Mikhaleva. Also surviving him are his father Christopher St John and daughters Paris St John and Lola St John. Plus, there’s a legion of fans that are devastated by this tragedy.

Kristoff St John was a big fan-favorite on Y&R, as he has played Neil Winters since 1973.
