Kristoff St. John, 52, was still a leading cast member on the CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless when he died suddenly on February 3. The long-running daytime drama is sending St. John’s character off in style with a week-long tribute, honoring his character Neil Winters.

Daytime Emmy Award-winner Shemar Moore will return to Genoa City to reprise his role as St. John’s brother Malcolm Winters. The tribute marks the first time Moore returned to the role since 2014.

Along with fictional tributes to the beloved character, the show’s cast will share memories of St. John, along with moments from the actor’s tenure on the series.

Prior to the week-long tribute, the series remembered St. John in a touching clip played at the end of an episode days after his death.

St. John, who starred on the show since 1991, died unexpectedly from heart disease combined with the effects of an accidental alcohol overdose, the Los Angeles coroner’s office has revealed, according to KCAL.
