The Death of  Actor Treat Williams 

The recent announcement of Richard Treat Williams’ passing at the age of 71 comes almost two months after his representative, Barry McPherson, confirmed the sad news.

Born on December 1, 1951, in Rowayton, Connecticut, Williams was the son of Marion and Richard Nelson Williams. Despite his involvement in football during high school, he developed a keen interest in acting during his teenage years, ultimately choosing it as his career, as disclosed in an interview with Vermont Magazine.

Making his debut in the 1975 thriller “Deadly Hero,” Williams shared the screen with James Earl Jones and Don Murray. Over the course of his accomplished career, he received two Golden Globe Award nominations and appeared in numerous Hallmark films. Additionally, Williams was widely recognized for his exceptional collection of vintage cars, including a 1950s Chevy Apache truck and an early 1970s Oldsmobile, as verified by Rapphahn.
