“Our sweet Fred put up a strong and courageous battle against an aggressive cancer,” Rikaart wrote. “This weekend he let us know that it was time for him to rest. We filled his last days with all of his favorite things: sushi, walks, tennis balls, and tons of time with Rob, Monte, and me.

“Our hearts are heavy with sadness but also filled with gratitude for how lucky we were to be picked by Fred and to have 11 years of great memories with our little boy,” he continued. “Thank you for enriching my life in countless ways, Fred. I’m gonna miss our lunch dates and the smell of your head most.”

Rikaart’s Y&R castmates, including Hunter King (Summer) and Chrishell Stause (Bethany), were quick to offer their condolences to Greg, Rob, and their son, Montgomery.

It’s a heartbreaking loss, but Rikaart’s words are just beautiful, and Fred was very clearly loved a tremendous amount.
