Cordero’s wife, Amanda Kloots, made the announced on Sunday night.

“God has another angel in heaven now. My darling husband passed away this morning,” says Kloots Sunday night post. “He was surrounded in love by his family, singing and praying as he gently left this earth.”

The Hamilton native Broadway actor was hospitalized at the end of March after contracting the disease and endured a series of complications including blood clots, sepsis infection, a tracheotomy, and lung infections.

In an Instagram post from May, Kloots said Cordero had awoken from a medically induced coma after having his right leg amputated a few weeks prior because of the disease.

The 41-year-old actor grew up in Hamilton’s west end and studied acting at Ryerson University before moving to California.

His most recent acting credits include the TV show Blue Blood, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Mob Town, and Inside Game. 

“He was everyone’s friend, loved to listen, help and especially talk. He was an incredible actor and musician. He loved his family and loved being a father and husband. Elvis and I will miss him in everything we do, everyday,” says Kloots emotional post.
