The acting world shooks its head in the loss of a talented actor as the Sex and the City star left the world on September 21, 2021. William, whose birth name was William Garson Paszamant, died after a battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of 57- after 7 months of his birthday.
The late actor's son Nathen (whom he adopted at 7 years old) confirmed the death of the TV screen veteran via Instagram (@nathen_garson). In a series of pictures of his father, Nathen wrote a heartful caption as a tribute; it 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."
While the further details on William's diagnosis with cancer are under curtains, Michael Patrick King, the executive producer of Sex and the City, confirmed that the actor was sick for a while.
