According to reports from Marin County Sheriff’s office the  63-year-old actor was found dead inside his home around 12 noon Monday.  It was further suspected that the Oscar-winning actor’s cause of death was suicide due to asphyxia. However a more thorough investigation is to be conducted before a final determination is made.

Susan Schneider, wife of Robin Williams released a statement earlier today saying:

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”

 

Robin Williams was best known for his roles in such classic American films like Aladdin, Jumanji, Mrs. Doubtfire, Hook and Goodwill Hunting. He’s brought smiles to the faces of many children and adults all across the globe.

Many people are aware however that Williams struggled with depression and alcoholism. He had reported being sober for over 20 years but suffered a relapse late 2005 and checked into a rehab facility last month. We acknowledge his struggles but we choose to uplift his memory and legacy by remembering the joy he brought to countless lives.
