Y&R Star Suffers Loss

Christopher Banninger, a sound mixer on GH and the former husband to Beth Maitland (Traci, Y&R), died on October 31 of a massive heart attack. “He passed away with no pain and with dear friends holding his hand,” Maitland shared on social media. “He is survived by our daughter Emelia, and although you may know we were recently divorced, I have spent 35 years of loving this man with every ounce of me and I feel so sorry for the pain this loss brings to so many of you who loved him too.”
