According to TMZ, Williamson passed away due to COVID-19 in his residence in Las Vegas after struggling to recover from the disease.

Following the tragic passing of his father, his mourning son went live on Facebook to express his grief and pour out his emotions. With tears streaming down his face, he spoke about his late father and how amazing the man was.

Amid his outpour, the singer's son broke into a gospel song by Rev. Paul Jones, "I Won't Complain," accompanied by additional songs in memory of his late father.

Before ending his video, the grieving Bruce Jr. said that in his eyes the world had lost an icon and he was going to ensure that his dad's legacy lives on.

Williamson was reportedly diagnosed with COVID-19 late in August not long after undergoing cholecystectomy, a surgery to remove his gallbladder.

Williamson became a part of the Temptations in 2006 when he replaced original member, G.C. Cameron. He remained with the group for about a decade, making wonderful hit songs with them until he left and was substituted by Larry Braggs, a former vocalist for Tower of Power. Rest in peace, Williamson!
