by at .

The Young and the Restless fans will have one final chance to say goodbye to Kristoff St. John.

CBS has confirmed that the long-running soap opera will air the final episode St. John filmed as Neil Winters on Wednesday, February 6.

Yes, that's today.

St. John - who was also honored on Tuesday with a special tribute on the program - starred as Winters for more than 25 years, earning himself two Daytime Emmys and multiple NAACP Image Awards for his role.

Tragically, St. John was found dead this past Sunday at his home in California.

With details stil coming in and an investigation underway, we're trying hard not to speculate on the cause of death.

However, insiders have reported that alcohol over-consumption may have played a key role in the actor's passing.

Those close to St. John have also spoken out about how St. John never recovered from his son's suicide in 2014.

St. John was only 52 years old at the time of his passing.

He was hospitalized in 2017 after threatening suicide and he got engaged a year later.

An autopsy was completed on Monday, but the coroner has deferred announcing a cause of death as he awaits toxicology results.

Since St. John’s death, messages have poured in from his famous friends and numerous Young and the Restless co-stars, past and present -- including Shemar Moore, who played his brother Malcolm Winters.

This is what the S.W.A.T. star wrote on social media in the wake of this awful news:

"Mr KRISTOFF ST JOHN..... There is no ME without YOU!!!!! You are MY BROTHER!!! I LOVE YOU!!! Sleep my dude...."

In a video shared to his Instagram page, Moore added:

"I lost my brother yesterday. I've never had a brother. But you were my brother. You showed me the way. You were my mentor, my inspiration.

"You showed me what true talent was. You showed me what humility was.

"I love you. I hate this. I love you. But I'm going to celebrate all your good... Kristoff, sleep, man. Find your peace."

Moore was not alone in his mourning of St. John.

Russian model Kseniya Mikhaleva, to whom the late actor got engaged in 2018, also shed many virtual tears in her online tribute.

"How did it happen ??? How ??? Why did you leave so early ???? and left me alone ..... I can’t believe. you were everything to me," she wrote, clearly heartbroken prior to adding:

"You were a loving father, a loving man, love?? we should doing a lot of things in future......"

We continue to send our condolences to Mikhaleva and all of St. John's loved ones.

May he rest in peace.
