John Callahan Dead - 'All My Children' Actor Dies at 66

Soap opera actor John Callahan has passed away at the age of 66.

John was best known for playing Edmund Grey on the soap opera All My Children from 1992 to 2005. He married his on-screen love interest Eva LaRue in 1996 and they got divorced in 2004. The former couple are parents to an 18-year-old daughter named Kaya.

A rep for John told TMZ that he suffered a “massive stroke” at his home in Palm Desert, Calif. and his death was not related to the current health crisis.

Eva announced John‘s death on her Instagram account.

“May flights of Angels Wing you to your rest my dear friend,” Eva wrote in her post. “Your bigger than life, gregarious personality will leave a hole in our hearts forever. We are devastated — my great friend, co-parent partner, and loving father to Kaya. That big belly laugh, bear hugs, bad puns, ability to harmonize and to song, great kitchen table singing-fests, and two stepping bad ass!”

Eva added, “Kaya and I are beyond broken hearted, so stunned, sorry that my thoughts are a mess. You gave the best most beautifully written tributes, and I am at a complete loss for words right now for you. I hope Heaven has baseball and that your team always wins! The Yankees has just lost their biggest Fan.”

We’re sending our thoughts and condolences to all of John‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
