Who Is Quentin Williams’ Wife?

A Connecticut senator was killed in a wrong-way vehicle accident. Quentin Williams, 39, of Middletown, was slain overnight on Route 9 near Cromwell after attending both the governor’s inauguration and his own inauguration ceremony. On Thursday, January 5, House Democrats issued a statement in response to the disturbing news.

A collision occurred on Route 9 near Cromwell, Connecticut, just outside of Middletown, at about 12.45 a.m. local time. The accident was triggered by a car driving the wrong way down the highway. Although it is unclear which direction the state legislator’s automobile was driving, investigators informed The New York Times that it was “completely enveloped in flames” and was heading south.

According to state police, both drivers were killed, and one of the automobiles caught fire. According to NBC News, the names of the victims have not yet been released.

Williams served as treasurer of Middletown before being elected to the assembly after chairing the city’s planning and zoning commission. According to his website, he attended Middletown schools, earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Bryant University, and a master’s degree in public administration from Villanova University.

According to a statement from Speaker of the House Matt Ritter, D-Hartford, and Majority Leader Jason Rojas, D-East Hartford, Williams’ family announced the lawmaker’s death. “I’m in shock,” Ritter admitted. “Q was a great buddy, and his untimely death has left me scarred. We’ll have time to reflect on Q as a lawmaker in the coming weeks, but for now, I’m mourning my friend and sending my love to Carrissa, Queen, and Q’s family. Q will be missed by all.”

“Rep. Williams certainly epitomized the expression larger than life,” said Middletown Mayor Ben Florsheim in a Facebook post. “His humor, grin, and presence were felt in every area he shared. His death is a great loss for our community. Today, a light has been turned off.” While we are heartbroken, the community he loved so much—and where Q was loved so much in return—will continue the fight.”

“This is awful news, and I am deeply grieved by this loss,” Gov. Ned Lamont stated, according to NBC Connecticut. “Quentin had an infectiously cheerful disposition, and he really adored having the opportunity to represent his boyhood home of Middletown in the State Capitol.

His passion was public service, and he was always campaigning for the people of his community. He was an honest person with an honest soul, and he will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, notably his wife Carrissa and mother Queen, as well as his friends and colleagues in the General Assembly.”
