Willie Garson died of pancreatic cancer, the family said

Willie Garson’s family shared how he died.

In the a New York Times obituary published on Thursday, his family wrote that the 57-year-old actor, whose legal name was William Garson Paszamant, died at his home in Los Angeles.

“The cause was pancreatic cancer,” reads the obituary.

Best known for his role as Stanford Blatch in the “Sex and the City” series, the obituary also contributed to the work.

“As Stanford Blatch, Carrie Bradshaw’s best male friend, Garson was never lost for a caustic quip,” it reads. “As his role evolved over the course of six seasons, Stanford was not only witty but also sometimes vulnerable as he struggled in his own efforts to navigate sex in the city.”

“For the last four decades, he has appeared in over 300 television shows and over 70 films,” the obituary says.

Garson’s family has asked for donations to be made in his name instead of flowers to the Alliance for the Rights of the Child.
