The Everwood and Hair star left behind an incredible legacy through his acting career, but he also left behind his doting wife, Pam Van Sant, whom he’s been married to since 1988. The now widow shared two kids with her late husband and they led a pretty private life in both Park City, UT and Manchester Center, VT over the years.
