Two weeks before he was found dead, St. John mourned the loss of his son, who died by suicide four years prior. The actor was last active on Twitter when he retweeted someone's post about losing a child that read, "Grieving the loss of a child is a process. It begins on the day your child passes, and ends the day the parent joins them." "Never a truer word was spoke," St. John tweeted. "Thanks for posting this." St. John is survived by his daughter Paris, whom he also shares with ex-wife Mia Rosales St. John, as well as daughter Lola with ex-wife Allana Nadal.
