News broke on Sunday that St. John, 52, was found dead in his home. The actor had been battling depression since the loss of his son, Julian, who committed suicide four years ago.
On Monday, St. John’s colleagues, celebrities and fans filled social media to honor him.
I’ll miss you Steel @kristoffstjohn1 💔

He had so much to share with the world, in his short life, he managed to make all of us fond of him and smile. Rest well, I pray that your family and friends find comfort.#KristoffStJohn#TheCosbyShow#YoungAndTheRestless#YoungGiftedAndTalented #BillCosby #FarFromFinished pic.twitter.com/hAN8IVF7Eb
