THE iconic Sex and the City and White Collar star Willie Garson passed away at the age of 57 after reportedly battling cancer as his son issued a heartbreaking tribute.
In a touching Instagram post, Nathen Garson fondly recalled his dad, who was known for his role as Stanford Blatch on SATC alongside Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon.
The post read: “I love you so much papa. Rest In Peace and I’m so glad you got to share all your adventures with me and were able to accomplish so much. I’m so proud of you. I will always love you, but I think it’s time for you to go on an adventure of your own.
“You’ll always be with me. Love you more than you will ever know and I’m glad you can be at peace now. You always were the toughest and funniest and smartest person I’ve known. I’m glad you shared you’re love with me. I’ll never forget it or lose it.”
Willie had been battling cancer, according to TMZ sources, but this has yet to be confirmed. He played the gay BFF to Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw and appeared in 27 episodes in total throughout the six seasons of the show, running from 1998 to 2004.
