The 41-year-old actor, who appeared in multiple acclaimed Broadway musicals including "Bullets over Broadway" for which he was nominated for a Tony award, had been fighting the illness for over three months.
The Rock of Ages actor's wife, Amanda Kloots, confirmed the sad news in an Instagram post on Sunday evening, after spending more than 90 days in a Los Angeles hospital. The couple share one child together, a one-year-old son named Elvis.
"God has another angel in heaven now". My heart is broken as I can not imagine our lives without him.
"Nick was such a bright light", Kloots said in her Instagram post.
Now, the tributes are coming in from all corners of the theater world as well as from actors, filmmakers, producers, and more, who are remembering Cordero as a talented, kind person - and sharing their love and support for his grieving family.
She continued, thanking her husband's doctor, "To Nicks extraordinary doctor, Dr. David Ng, you were my positive doctor! But just know that so many people personally or strangers now are sending you mountains of love". Kind, smart, compassionate, assertive and always eager to listen to my insane ideas or call yet another doctor for me for a second opinion. We love you. #sugarbutterfamily, ' Sara wrote for her roughly 704,000 followers on Instagram. He was everyone's friend, loved to listen, help and especially talk.
