Treat Williams died earlier this month after being involved in a motorcycle accident. The star was 71 years old.

On Blue Bloods, Treat portrayed Lenny Ross, a Detective in the New York City Police Department. He was Francis Reagan’s partner in the NYPD and is his friend.
“Blue Bloods” fans sent love to Treat via Reddit, read their messages below:
“He was such a great actor. I am going to miss him. First ever show I seen him was Everwood. This is going interesting how they deal with this death on shows he on.” – Balasoori
“Sad news … he was such a great actor. It’s kinda sad that his final Blue Bloods episode was about the impending death of his character only for the actor himself to die in a motorcycle accident a few months later (I assume the episode was filmed in April or earlier).” – Chris
Do you think the producers should give Treat’s character a farewell during the final season? Let us know your thoughts!
BLUE BLOODS is a drama about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement. Frank Reagan is the New York Police Commissioner, and heads both the police force and the Reagan brood. He runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family, even when dealing with the politics that plagued his unapologetically bold father, Henry, during his stint as chief. A source of pride and concern for Frank is his eldest son, Danny, a seasoned detective, family man and Iraq War vet who on occasion uses dubious tactics to solve cases with his partner and new mother, Detective Maria Baez. Erin, the middle daughter, is a New York assistant D.A. who serves as the legal compass for her siblings and father, while also pursuing a run for district attorney. Jamie is the youngest Reagan, a Harvard Law graduate and the family’s golden boy. Unable to deny the family tradition, Jamie decided to give up a lucrative future in law and follow in the family footsteps as a cop. He’s found a friend and ally in his wife, Eddie, who keeps him on his toes, and has very different reasons than the Reagans for joining the police force.
