Broadway actor Nick Cordero has lost his 95-day battle with coronavirus. The 41-year-old died on Sunday after being in the hospital since March 30.

Cordero’s wife, Amanda Kloots, made the announcement over Instagram.

“God has another angel in heaven now,” Kloots posted on her Instagram account on Sunday (5 July). “My darling husband passed away this morning. He was surrounded in love by his family, singing and praying as he gently left this earth.”Cordero has been on a ventilator since April and suffered from multiple complications, including two mini-strokes. He woke up from a coma in late May, but his wife said his health did not improve.

Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Mirandan led tributes to the actor. “Devastating. What a loss, what a light. Whole heart with Amanda and his family tonight,” he tweeted.

Cordero was nominated for a Tony Award and a Drama Desk Award for his role in the musical Bullets Over Broadway in 2014. He also played major roles in the Broadway productions of Waitress and A Bronx Tale.
