Adan, may you rest in peace.”

Maggie Q shared a post on Instagram to honor her “beautiful friend” adding, “You are the level of person that Hollywood didn’t even deserve. Kindness and warmth and generosity of spirit- total dedication to your family, and ALWAYS doing the right thing.”

Garrett honored Canto with an Instagram post, sharing, “As great of an actor as Adan was, he was an even better human being, father, husband, and friend. Exuded both confidence and humility effortlessly. As stand up as they come. Sad day. You, your wife and children will be in my prayers brother… RIP friend….”
