His wife posted the following:
RIP Nick  7/5/20: God has another angel in heaven now. My darling husband passed away this morning. He was surrounded in love by his family, singing and praying as he gently left this earth.  I am in disbelief and hurting everywhere. My heart is broken as I cannot imagine our lives without him. Nick was such a bright light. 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.

There just aren't words. RIP Nick Cordero. So young, funny and talented.From his early days at Westdale to "Tony n' Tina's Wedding", to writing/recording his fantastic music, truly a shining star in any room he walked in, it's easy to see why his star shone so bright on Broadway. Sending love to the entire Cordero family.

He was a beautiful person inside and out. He was talented in so many ways. He knew how to laugh and have a great time. And oh how we laughed. He knew how to make you feel special and worthy and listened to and loved. He was one in a million. I’m so honoured to have called you a friend. I’ll never forget you for as long as I live. Thank you for being a part of my life. You were just too bright a star. Your life should have blown up the sky for many more years to come. Love you Nick Cordero. I’m just gutted. Sending peace and love to Amanda, Elvis, Nick’s family and all who had the pleasure of knowing you. Rest In Peace and Love
