Stars Remember Kamar de los Reyes

The daytime community was heartbroken when ONE LIFE TO LIVE star Kamar de los Reyes (Antonio) passed away on Dec. 24 at the age of 56 following a short battle with cancer. Friends and fans quickly filled social media with love for the actor, including some fellow soap stars.

“So deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my friend and colleague Kamar de los Reyes,” Jacob Young (JR, AMC) wrote on Instagram. “As a very young actor, there were only a small handful of people in my life that would offer their support in such a competitive industry. Kamar had always been one of them. A true gentleman and beacon of light. I remember one time we were flying back from an event and we were sitting together and I began to nod off (as one does from a weekend fan event). He reached over and adjusted my head and fixed my headrest so I could have a better rest. It’s the simplest things we do as humans that make the biggest impact. I will never forget that kindness and humanity.

“Over the years we spent many nights laughing together in Manhattan,” he continued. “One of those nights I remember introducing him to my then girlfriend Christen, who now is my wife, and I said to her, ‘This is one of the good ones.’ Kamar and I had a love and admiration for each other. I will always remember you in that way. A man who had love for his family, a love for the world, a love for his Puerto Rican culture, a love for music and salsa dancing! (In fact, he tried to teach me many times, even with my two left feet.) My condolences to his family and loved ones. The Lord took another one of his soldiers home. Rest easy, mi amigo.”
