    Monteith was tragically found dead in a Vancouver hotel room.

    His death came just months after he voluntarily checked himself into rehab for substance abuse.

    In October of 2013, a coroner's report revealed that Monteith "died of mixed drug toxicity, involving intravenous heroin use combined with the ingestion of alcohol."

    That same month, Glee paid tribute to the actor and his character in an episode titled "The Quarterback."
