Steve… u r a legend. And my respect for your dedication to life is undentable. There is not a man alive that could speak ill of you and that is a true testament to your undeniable character. I will miss talking really important crap with you, but am so glad that your family will have u 24/7. Ur a Titan! And Bryton… you could learn from Steve Burton. Jk. #adieu”

I guess he will just leave town the goatee makes me curious I see him going rogue on the police force no need to recast if Sally had been writing for him might have been a different story about his character. I know he is known to really be a good guy off camera just can’t figure out his friendship with JFP?

Brown passed away this week on November 24th at the age of 67 following a brief illness.  The news came via the As the World Turns Facebook Fan Group and Soap Opera Digest.

This comes just two months later following the death of her former on-screen love interest Michael Tylo (Ex-Quinton, Guiding Light), who passed away in late September.

She is survived by her children: James “Buddy” Nielsen, and daughter Victoria from her first husband Tom Nielsen (Ex-Floyd, GL) in addition to her two grandchildren, Penelope Ruiz-Nielsen and Brayden Hopf, and her second husband Brian Neary.
