Genius of Comedy Robin Williams Dead at 63

It is with great despair that we learn of the death of the comical genius, Robin Williams, 63.  The Oscar-winning comedian/actor was found dead in his home in Tiburon, Calif. on August 11, 2014. At this time, the Sheriff’s Office Coroner Division suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia.

“He has been battling severe depression as of late,” his media representative Mara Buxbaum said. “This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

 The actor leaves behind his wife, graphic designer Susan Schneider, who released a statement shortly after the news of his death surfaced, and his three children, Zachary (from his first marriage), Cody and Zelda (from his second marriage).

 “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 the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions,” Susan Schneider.

The news of Williams’ death has shocked family, friends, fans, co-stars, actors/actresses and countless others worldwide and has gone viral as everyone remembers his past roles, the joy he brought to the screen and more importantly to homes across the globe as they watched him do what he did best; make people laugh until they cried.President Barack Obama’s statement sent from the White House summed up all of our feelings: “Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between.  But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien — but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit.  He made us laugh.  He made us cry.  He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most — from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets.”

Although this time is tragic and filled with sadness and grief, Williams’ fans can look forward to four more movie appearances coming to theaters, including another part in the “Night at the Museum.” The film, set for a December release, has Williams playing the Teddy Roosevelt role he delivered so wonderfully in the first two comedies.

“Death. To die. To expire. To pass on. To perish. To peg out. To push up daisies. To push up posies. To become extinct. Curtains, deceased, demised, departed and defunct. Dead as a doornail. Dead as a herring. Dead as a mutton. Dead as nits. The last breath. Paying a debt to nature. The big sleep. God’s way of saying, “Slow down.” – Robin Williams as Hunter Patch Adams.
