There was no mention of John’s death cause in the actress’s post. John probably died of natural causes due to his advanced age and absence of recognized health problems.

John Aniston, whose birth name was Yiannis Anastasakis, grew up in a household of four on the Greek island of Crete, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter. John’s early exposure to Chester, Pennsylvania, where his father opened a restaurant, sparked an early interest in the performing arts on his part.

After finishing his time in the Navy, he landed his first guest starring role on the CBS show Brenner.

Since then, he has guest-starred on a wide variety of TV shows, but his longest-running role was as the villain Victor Kiriakis on Days of Our Lives. Before playing Victor in 1985, he had previously appeared on the show as a doctor beginning in 1969. He remained in the post to the very end.

Sherry Rooney, Alex Aniston, and Jennifer Rooney are John’s surviving children and second wife. Fans are thinking about him and his loved ones.
