Nicks's friend Scrubs star Zach Braff has also posted a loving tribute to the late Nick, saying "Nick Cordero Passed at 11:40am today with his wife and mother by his side. I have honestly never known a kinder person. But Covid doesn't care about the purity of your soul, or the goodness in your heart."

Braff, who had met Nick while they worked together on the set of Bullets On Broadway added "The last thing he ever texted me was to look out for his wife and one year old son, Elvis. I promise the world they will never want for anything. I feel so incredibly grateful I got to have Nick Cordero enter my life. Rest In Peace. Rest in Power."
