“This is a tough one, and I don’t like doing this on social media, but I want to share what an absolute treasure Treat Williams was- both as an actor and a person,” Bomer – who played Williams’ son in “White Collar” – captioned a photo of his TV dad on Monday.

Alec Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria Baldwin, took to her Instagram Story to share how “sick” and “broken” her family feels after the loss of her husband’s “Drunk Parents” co-star.

Beverly D’Angelo, who co-starred with Williams on “Hair” and “A Streetcar Named Desire,” shared their last text message interaction. At the time, she thanked “treatski” for calling her minutes before to discuss “the importance of adapting, growing” in the acting and directing industry.

“A gifted sincere magnificent human who valued fatherhood and family above all,” she wrote in part. “I hope you hear everyone singing your praises Treat. I will miss you. I cry for you. Fly.”

Gregory Smith, who played Williams’ son on “Everwood,” told People in a statement: “This news is devastating. Treat was a wonderful man and a brilliant actor. Above all, he loved his family so much. I’m very grateful for the time I got to spend as part of his extended tv family.

“He made an indelible impression on me during my most formative years. I will always cherish my time with Treat and think fondly of his stories, his laugh and his passion for adventure.”
