“Alec was a wonderful man. He was the best fiancé. The best dog dad. Very kind-hearted person,” Press told Fox News. “Seeing how many messages and people have reached out to me from his childhood. … In the last couple of days, people I’ve never even met, have sent me photos of him from high school and when he was at their wedding. … He was so loved and touched by so many people.”
Press told Fox News that Musser was suffering from a “severe case” of COVID-19 before his death. USA TODAY has reached out to the Press, as well as representatives for Musser for comment. Musser starred as Del Henry on ABC’s “All My Children” from 2005 to 2007, earning the role after he won the second season of the reality competition series “I Wanna Be a Soap Star” in 2005. Following his stint on the long-running soap opera, Musser guest-starred on the network’s dramedy “Desperate Housewives” in 2011.
Musser was also seen on the big screen with appearances in “Road to the Altar” in 2009 and the Adam Sandler-led “Grown Ups” in 2010. Sandler paid tribute to Musser on Instagram Saturday, sharing a photo of Musser’s character Water Park Stud.
