The Young and the Restless star Beau Kazer died on Thursday, Dec. 30 at his home in Thousand Oaks, Calif., according to 'Soap Opera Network.' He was 63-years-old.
The Ontario, Canada native landed his first major acting role — which was also his most famous — in 1974 when he was cast as Brock Reynolds, the son of Katherine Chancellor on the CBS daytime drama.
In 1980, Beau left 'Y&R' for a brief hiatus before returning to the popular series for several stints throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s. He temporarily reprised his role in April 2009 after his TV mother's character, played by the late Jeanne Cooper, passed away.

Outside of 'Y&R,' Beau also appeared on 'General Hospital' — where he played Dr. Bunny Wilson — 'Hart to Hart,' 'B. J. and the Bear' and 'Barnaby Jones.'
On Tuesday, Jan. 6, Beau's former 'Y&R' costar Daniel Goddard posted a sweet tribute to his late friend on his Facebook page.
