General Hospital honored their late cast member Johnny Wactor in their latest episode.

According to TV Line, the ABC soap opera concluded the June 11 episode with a title card honoring the late actor, who portrayed Brando Corbin on General Hospital from 2020 to 2022.

Wactor was tragically shot and killed on May 25 at the age of 37. The actor had just finished his shift as a bartender in Los Angeles and was walking to his car when he encountered three armed thieves attempting to steal the catalytic converter from his vehicle.

Four days later, PEOPLE reported that the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner determined Wactor's cause of death to be a gunshot wound to the chest, and his death was classified as a homicide.

“He was a good person,” Wactor's brother Grant previously told PEOPLE. “He was taken way too early, and no one should be taken like this at all. He touched a lot of people. He believed in his core values to the end, and he lived life to the fullest the way he wanted to. And he was happy doing that.”

As reported by the news outlet, the death certificate of the star revealed that he was cremated and his ashes will be sent to his mother Scarlett Wactor in Summerville, S.C.
