FOX News:

Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams, who dazzled in such wide-ranging dramatic and comedic roles as alien, nanny, therapist and cartoon genie during a four-decades long career, was found dead in his northern California home in a suspected suicide Monday. He was 63.

The Marin County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement that Williams was found unconscious and not breathing in his home around noon. The statement said the investigation into Williams’ death is ongoing, but the coroner “suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia.”

A representative for Williams said in a statement the actor had been battling “severe depression of late.”

“This is a tragic and sudden loss,” Mara Buxbaum said. “The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

The death of Robin Williams is truly like a death of so many childhood memories. So many great TV shows and movies. But the best of all was his brilliant comic ad-lib. I can remember Robin Williams from when he first came to our TV’s on Happy Days as Mork. This would in turn spin off into Mork & Mindy where he starred with Pam Dawber as an alien living in Bolder, CO. Williams starred in some of my favorite movies like The Bird Cage, Good Morning Vietnam, Good Will Hunting, August Rush, Moscow on the Hudson, The World According to Garp and Dead Poets Society.

Good Morning Vietnam

Dead Poets Society – the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation; don’t resign to that…

Not only a great movie scene, but words to live by. “We much constantly look at things in a different way. Just when you think you know something, you have to look at it in a different way.”
