While the news about his death was confirmed, an accurate cause of death hasn't yet been revealed, per Deadline. “A world without you in it is a much darker place. So much so that when his wife reached out to me yesterday with the news, I wept tears of disbelief for hours. It's taken me til now to fully mentally and emotionally steel myself to write this,” Colvin's statement adds.

Gauthier is survived by his wife and children. However, since the Supernatural star kept his personal life private, not much is known about his family, including the identities of his spouse and kids. “Chris was the literal textbook definition of a character actor. You may not have known his name but you knew his face, you knew his voice, and you knew that if he was onscreen, you were in for a helluva ride,” the statement continues.
