31-year-old Glee star Cory Monteith passed away in Vancouver, stunning both fans and loved ones. Members of Monteith's family were contacted after Vancouver police confirmed he was dead during a press conference. Monteith had missed his noon checkout time, so a staff member was sent up to his room. Monteith's stepmom, Yvette, who hadn't seen the actor in a couple years when he visited his father Joe in New Brunswick, remembers the legacy he leaves behind. 'He was a beautiful young man.'
