Robin Williams signed off today leaving millions of dedicated fans and friends hanging their heads in loss.
Not only was Robin Williams and amazing comedian and great actor but his legacy spans over forty years, leaving us with classics like Mork & Mindy, Popeye, Jumanji, The Fisher King and the everlasting classic Dead Poet’s Society.
Our heart goes out not only to him, but his family and wife Susan Schneider, who released the following statement to the New York Times’ Dave Itzkoff:
“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope that the focus will not be on Robin’s death but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”
Robin Williams had been battling depression and died from an apparent suicide from asphyxia, in his home, in Marin County.
Nanoo, Nanoo to a great actor. We’re sorry you signed out Robin Williams.
