Many of us grew up with his show Mork and Mindy in 1978 until 1982, the grand comedian and actor Robin Williams has passed in his early age of 63 and the news rapidly spread. Williams died late this morning at his California home per reports from asphyxia, although investigation is still pending.
The sad news rapidly spread on social media and on television worldwide. And his wife Susan Schneider, shared how she wanted her late husband to be remembered, “This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artist 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.”
