Willie Garson Recalled the 'Greatest' Memory with Son Nathen in One of His Final Interviews Nathen penned a heartfelt tribute to his father last week, after Garson died of pancreatic cancer, following a brief illness. "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," he started. "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," Nathan wrote. "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 [sic] love with me. I'll never forget it or lose it." Willie adopted Nathen in 2010, after deciding he didn't want to wait to get married to start a family. They first met during a Los Angeles adoption fair in October 2008, when Nathen was 7.

"We're pretty close. It's hard," he said in November. "I'm the one, it's harder for me to let go. He's living his life, he's at college and his friends and girlfriends and tennis team and sneaking liquor and whatever they do at college. But we're there for each other, and I have to not want to make every minute of his life perfect," Willie added. "It's time for him to make his life."
