Fellow Y&R star Michael Muhney wrote, “Your quiet intensity on screen was second only to your gentle kindness and genuine care in private. You were bigger and braver and bolder than this life. You were legend.”
In addition to the Soap Opera world, he appeared in several other series, including Suits, CSI and NCIS.
