Survived by his wife, Sharon Alkus, Kazer had been a fixture on “Y&R” for much of its 40+ years on television. He most recently appeared in 2013 episodes of the daytime drama series celebrating the life of Jeanne Cooper and her character, Katherine Chancellor, who was Brock’s mother.

Alkus notes that “Y&R” was a large part of her husband’s life and that he was very proud of [being part of the cast].

The Young and the Restless has lost another of its own… RIP Beau Kazer (Brock) I remember the first time I heard your voice and thought wow! This guy should have been in radio! Then I watched u act and was blown away with how natural and honest your performances always were. God Bless,” shared Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) on Facebook.
