That tribute episode will also include former and current cast members sharing remembrances of St. John supported by clips from Kristoff’s enduring run on the series.

According to EW: “The Y&R plot line will address St. John’s passing beginning April 23.  Genoa City learns of the unexpected death of Neil, so family and friends gather to remember their beloved father, colleague, brother, and friend. The story will continue through the remainder of the week.”

Anthony Morina, (Executive Producer, Y&R) noted: “We all miss Kristoff immensely and are understandably still in a bit of shock. Our hope is that this storyline and tribute episode airing in April will honor the legendary character Kristoff helped create, and provide our audience with the opportunity to say a meaningful goodbye to Neil Winters.”

St. John passed away on February 3rd at the age of 52.

It’s nice to see that Y&R has planned a special tribute for Neil and not a lazy send-off for a legacy character that truly changed the face of the show. I credit that to the new EP and Head Writer, because under Mal Young, Kristoff St. John’s airtime was drastically reduced, and Neil was underused in story when he could (and should) have been front-and-center. It’s too bad that Neil wasn’t involved in more front-burner story over the last few years, and it doesn’t make his passing any easier, but it’s nice that Y&R will be honouring his memory with… Read more »

I wonder if they will bring back Sofia, Mamie, Olivia or Moses? Neil and Olivia had unfinished business so she should DEFINITELY show up. I would love to see Mamie too. Here is hoping! Will Lily be sprung from the clink? Christel and Kristoff were close but I havent seen any news about her returning which is odd.

I’m just sad Kristoff never truly had THE front burner storyline in so many years. I think that might have changed with the new regime. BTW, you start seeing Josh Griffith’s name as co head writer on Wednesday’s show.

All I’m going to say is this, Y&R better do Mr. St. John and Neil justice.

This is a legacy character that deserves a legacy send off.

Very ecstatic to see Ms. Rowell is included, even if it’s a self portrayal.

Even though we all have an ideal wish list, what is being presented so far sounds promising, respectable.

Hopefully this will become a continuous mending period to resurrect Drucilla and at least have a permanent surviving Winters to carry the Winters legacy.

Brings tears, so glad they are not only doing something special with the plot-line and the return of Mr. Moore, but an additional tribute. Ms. Morgan and Ms. Rowell were gems and it’s only fitting they will contribute. Much respect and continued prayers.

I think it’s great that Shemar is still willing to return to Y&R and he always remembers and honors his time there.

I will have to have the tissues handy.
