Please join us in sending love to THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS child star Judah Mackey (Connor), who is mourning the passing of his grandfather. “My Papa was the smartest, most generous person and loved his family so much,” he shared on Instagram along with photos of them together when he was just a baby, working in his woodshop, enjoying ice cream, and more.
“I’ll miss our talks about space and the universe,” Mackey continued, “woodworking in his shop, playing cards, watching the races, and going on hikes together. Even though he is no longer here, I know he will always be with me. Rest peacefully, Papa. You are loved and will be missed every day.”
In the hashtags, Mackey wrote “#cancersucks” and “#curegioblastoma” as well as “#braincancerawareness.” Glioblastoma is an aggressive type of cancer that can form in the brain or spinal cord and is considered to be one of the most dangerous forms of cancer.
Y&R fans fell in love with Mackey when he joined the cast as Connor Newman in 2019, and the talented young performer can also be seen playing Teddy Kessler in Apple TV’s THE MORNING SHOW and can be heard voicing Karl and Baby Bunny in the Apple TV animated series STILLWATER.
Our thoughts are with Mackey and his entire family during this very difficult time.
