BNick Cordero, a television and television actor, who spent months in intensive care to cure coronavirus and lost his leg from complications, died on Sunday at the age of 41, his wife said.
“My dear husband died this morning. He was surrounded by the love of his family, singing and praying as he gently left this land,” wrote Amanda Kloots on Instagram.
“I am incredulous and I hurt everywhere. My heart is broken because I can’t imagine our lives without him.”
“Elvis and I will miss him in everything we do, every day,” he added, referring to the couple’s one-year-old son.
Kloots said he fought the disease for 95 days.
After nearly three weeks of intensive care, Cordero’s doctors were forced to amputate his right leg because his bloodstream had been obstructed by a clot, another dangerous complication of the coronavirus.
He had died pending a double lung transplant.
Cordero was known for his roles in the musicals “Waitress”, “A Bronx Tale” and “Bullets Over Broadway”, for which he was nominated for a Tony award.
