Kristoff St. John Died 4 Years after Son's Suicide, Left behind 2 Daughters Who Miss Dad a Lot
Kristoff St. John, the actor who portrayed Neil Winters on “The Young and the Restless,” died on February 3, 2019, four years after his son committed suicide.
The man passed away at his home in Los Angeles, California. So far, the details of his death are not of public knowledge. Those who have followed the actor’s life believe that he probably killed himself.
Kristoff was married to boxer Mia St. John, with whom he had two children, Julian and Paris, born in 1989 and 1992 respectively. Unfortunately, Julian was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 2013.
Apart from that, the young man fought depression throughout his entire life. On November 23, 2014, Julian was found dead at age 24 in his room at a mental health care facility in Long Beach, California.
Soon after that, Kristoff and Mia filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the La Casa Psychiatric Health Facility claiming that the staff members didn’t do the mandatory check-ins that Julian needed.
It was also revealed that the man was supposed to be checked on every 15 minutes and the video surveillance proved that Julian had not been supervised for over one hour before he was found dead.
Apart from Julian and Paris, Kristoff had Lola, born in April 2003, during his relationship with Allana Nadal. Sadly, both girls have experienced the deaths of their brother and father.
Then ended up here. Last stop of the night. Fulfilling day. Eating a whole lot of selFISH. You've gotta know how amazing you are. Treat yourself like you're the best. And instead of thinking of all the reasons you cant in life start vouching for all the reasons you can. pic.twitter.com/dKFHlAcMXM— Paris St. John (@TheStJohnFamily) January 26, 2019
Paris is a model, singer, and songwriter who graduated from Santa Monica College in 2014. The 26-year-old woman dated model and photographer Bryan Randall soon before he started dating Sandra Bullock.
Lola, on the other hand, is 15 years old. For her last birthday, Kristoff threw a big celebration and shared his excitement on Instagram, writing an amusing message to any “boy” who may try to be with Lola.
