The Young and the Restless star will be buried at the Valley Oaks Memorial Park in Westlake Village, California, according TMZ. Reps for St. John did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Funeral details are still unknown.

The two-time Emmy Award-winning actor was found dead Feb. 3 in his home in the San Fernando Valley.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, a death investigation took place at around 2:05 p.m. for a possible alcohol overdose at the 2300 block of Morea Way. According to TMZ, the actor’s body was found after one of his friends went to check on him at his home.

PEOPLE previously reported that an autopsy has been completed, but a cause of death has been deferred pending additional results.

Julian struggled with mental illness before his death, and some of St. John’s final social media posts reflected on his son’s suicide. On Jan. 21, St. John 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,” tweeted St. John, who is survived by his fiancée, Kseniya Mikhaleva, daughter Paris (with Mia), and daughter Lola (with ex-wife Allana Nadal). “Thanks for posting this.”

The Young and The Restless’ Eric Braeden: Kristoff St. John's Death Has ‘Devastated’ Cast

The Young and The Restless’ Eric Braeden: Kristoff St. John's Death Has ‘Devastated’ Cast Eric Braeden, who plays daytime soap opera icon Victor Newman in The Young and The Restless, told The Daily Beast that he and the rest of the cast were “really devastated” over the death of co-star Kristoff St. John. “We worked together for nearly 30 years. He was a wonderful actor, great to work with, bright and empathic,” Braeden told The Daily Beast in an exclusive interview. “But he carried so many things in his heart and soul, especially after the terrible death of his son. I don’t think he ever got over it, and I don’t think he ever fully dealt with it. He tried to. Publicly he had a good demeanor and a good life. But I think the pain was deep: very, very deep.

While St. John’s death came as a shock, his fellow Young & the Restless costar Shemar Moore hopes the love he had for his children and family members will transcend the sadness.

“This is not how he’s going to be remembered in his last days. He’s going to be remembered for his journey, for how much he loved his children — Paris, Lola, and Julian, his son who had a hard time and took his life,” Moore, 48, told PEOPLE. “And Kristoff, he weathered that storm and he loved me and he loved Allana and his current fiancée, I don’t know her name — I never met her — but I was just excited him to see him in love again, just in love, somebody to share his heart with.”
