On the heels of Neil’s death on the show, CBS is planning on honoring St. John in some way on or around his birthday. They will show the fans how much they cared for St. John. He died suddenly in February after a long battle with depression. He developed a substance abuse addiction, specifically to alcohol. His addiction caused a heart defect, which led to his death.
His family, loved ones, fiancé, and friends have flocked to social media to tell the late actor how much they love and miss him. They all hope that he knew that he was loved and appreciated, and he is now, free of pain. Happy belated birthday, Kristoff! We hope you had a great day, wherever your spirit is.
