Willie Garson, an actor best known for playing Stanford Blatch, Carrie’s pal, in “Sex and the City” and Mozzie in “White Collar,” has died. He was 57.

There are no official statements, but Garson is said to have died from cancer.

Garson adopted a son, Nathen, in 2009. He remained an active voice in the adoption community, having served twice as a spokesperson for National Adoption Day.

Nathen paid tribute to Garson on Instagram, writing: “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.”

Condolences to his family and friends. I met Willie a few times, he was a lovely guy. This is a shame.
