The late actor’s son took to Instagram to write a lengthy tribute to his beloved father on the first anniversary of his death on September 21, 2022. My father has passed away.

Nathan went on to praise Willie in his post, saying, “He had a gift for speaking to literally everyone he came in contact with and either making them laugh or an awkward smile at a joke he was probably telling them.” had told. I had heard the same 3 or 4 dad jokes from when I moved in when I was 7 to when I was 15. So every joke at least a hundred times and I would ask him to get a new joke but now I wouldn’t get upset about him saying the same jokes a thousand or even a million more times.”

“Not only was he my father, he was my best friend and mentor before I even knew what that was. He inspired me when I was younger to be better than I ever thought possible and that’s why I always try to do better. Without him I wouldn’t be where I am today. I wouldn’t be who I am without him. He taught me to care about others and showed me how to love when all I ever knew was to fight for myself and only care about myself. He always made people smile and laugh, himself when he was upset or angry, and growing up watching him do that I wanted to do that, but after he died I realized that I was going to be selfish again and not the person he was raising me to be has.” Nathan wrote emotionally, referring to Willie Garson as not only his father but also his best friend.

“It’s important to revisit the past, but it’s just as easy to get stuck in the past. It is more important to remember that there is also a tomorrow and a future. As you move forward, make sure you smile and live life to the fullest…because no matter how much time you think you have less, I promise you it is less. Life comes and goes way too fast so appreciate everyone and say hello to a stranger every now and then because you never know when you might meet your next best friend. That’s how my father met me. Thanks for all the lessons dad,” he wrote at the end of his lengthy tribute thanking his dad.

Willie adopted Nathen in 2009 when he was only 7 years old. Nathan also posted a video and photo of the duo at a club dancing with the caption, “Miss you dad. I love you to the moon and back x1,000,000,000. I am sure you will dance and listen to the music you love on your adventure. Have fun”
