His ex-wife and former 'AMC' co-star, Eva La Rue said, "We are extremely saddened and distraught over the loss of John."

She continued, "He was my great friend, co-parent and an amazing father to Kaya. The absence of his bigger than life, gregarious personality will leave a hole in our hearts forever. Words cannot express the shock and devastation we are feeling at this time. The Yankees just lost one of their greatest fans."
