Colleagues lament the Death of a State Lawmaker: Connecticut legislators are mourning a colleague’s loss. People who knew Rep. Quentin “Q” Williams, who represented Middletown, have reported that he has passed away.
Williams was one of two persons who died in a violent wrong-way collision in Cromwell at around midnight on Thursday, according to sources who spoke to Channel 3.
“I met Q before he became a state legislator when he was an advocate for a local school in Stamford. I can only think of one word to describe him—hopeful,” said Connecticut Attorney General William Tong. “Q was always brimming with optimism and possibility.
He had a spirit that was relentlessly positive and aspirational. We need his light more than ever, and that’s why it is so hard to lose him. I offer my deepest condolences to his wife and his family and the community that he loved and served.”

Not a kinder person in the building or all of politics than Q. His smile radiated his genuine warmth and concern for others. A huge and unthinkable tragedy and loss. pic.twitter.com/LF2Yu71zEA

“I’m struck with sadness and disbelief,” said Rep. Tammy Nuccio, who serves Tolland, Vernon, and Willington. “I saw Q [Wednesday] and the very last thing I said to him was ‘Hey Q! The plates are over there in the back of the room.’ He flashed that amazing smile and said ‘thank you!’ We talked for nearly an hour at the UConn mixer last year about education. My heart is wounded. I wish I’d said more or something else after the direction to the plates. Such a great guy, a great legislator. CT has suffered a loss for sure.”
Devastated to hear the news early this morning about my friend Q Williams.
He was a passionate fighter that cared so deeply about policy and helping people.
He had the best laugh of anyone I’ve ever met and will be so missed. RIP brother.

Sean Scanlon, the state comptroller, described the news as catastrophic.
“He was a passionate fighter that cared so deeply about policy and helping people,” Scanlon said. “He had the best laugh of anyone I’ve ever met and will be so missed. RIP brother.” Rep. Melissa Osborne asserted that no one in politics was friendlier.
