The final words of Treat Williams are tragic.
White Collar actor Treat Williams was killed in a motorbike accident, his family said on Monday night. He was 71.
“It is with great sadness that we report that our beloved Treat Williams has passed away tonight in Dorset, Vermont after a fatal motorcycle accident,” the man’s family stated in a statement. As you can expect, we are stunned and deeply bereaved right now.
Williams was riding his motorcycle in Dorset, Vermont, when a Honda SUV drove left into a parking lot and struck him, striking him without seeing him, according to the police. Williams was thrown from his motorcycle after being unable to escape a collision, according to a Vermont State Police spokesperson. He was taken to Albany Medical Center in Albany, New York, where he was later declared dead after suffering grave injuries.
Only minor injuries were sustained by the SUV’s driver. An investigation is still proceeding as of right now.
Williams had more than 120 on-screen credits, making him “an actor’s actor.” He appeared in 127 Hours, Once Upon A Time in America, Blue Bloods, Chicago Fire, Everwood, and Chesapeake Shores, among other films and television programs.
In 1984, he received a Golden Globe nomination for his work in the drama A Streetcar Named Desire that was adapted for television.
Tom Selleck and Bridget Moynahan were among the first famous people to pay their respects.
A poignant homage to Williams was also put online by Matt Bomer, 45, who played Treat’s son in White Collar. “Treat Williams was an absolute treasure, both as an actor and a person,” the author says. “This is a tough one, and I don’t like doing this on social media.”
Treat, you were a brilliant actor and an even better guy, and I will miss you, said Matt, who also mentioned that you were “one of the few actors I’ve worked with who always checked in on me – even years after we worked together.” I consider myself really fortunate to have met you. Your wife and kids are in my thoughts and prayers. Peace be with you, dear friend.
The 76-year-old actor James Woods wrote on Twitter: “Treat and I spent months filming ‘Once Upon a Time in America’ in Rome.
“A long shoot may make it very lonely on the road, but his enduring good humor and sense of humor was a Godsend. I truly adored him and am heartbroken that he is no longer with us.
Williams made two posts on his social media just hours before his terrible death, and his admirers are still grieving over them today.
The actor gave followers a glimpse into his peaceful rural life in one of them by sharing a video of himself mowing the lawn and showing them the farmland. The second was a picture of him using a lawnmower with the comment, “There is no better smell than newly mown hay.”
Williams believed in savoring the little things in life, and his Vermont property was one of them.
The entertainment business, as well as the hearts of his admirers and those who cared about him, were left empty by his demise.
