The world lost a beloved artist and wonderful human being, as Williams, 63, died on August 11. Williams was discovered in his home in Tiburon, CA. Exact cause of death to be announced.

Williams, known for his stand-up comedy, films and TV shows, may most be remembered in his younger years as Mork from television's "Mork & Mindy." The show was a spinoff from the family comedy "Happy Days."

Actor, fan, film producer and president of United Film & TV Artists, Al Quinn, 84, remembers Mork.

"I liked Robin Williams and his acting very much. I especially liked his acting in 'Mrs. Doubtfire' and 'Dead Poets Society.' He was great, but sometimes he got zany and that is not my cup of tea. However he did a good job as 'pretty zany' Popeye!

According to Pop Culture Examiner Suzie Austin, Williams won his Academy Award for "Good Will Hunting." and was in the process of filming the third installment of the comedy series, "Night at the Museum." A second installment to the hit movie "Mrs. Doubtfire" had been announced for 2015.

Williams married Susan Schneider on October 23, 2011, in St. Helena, CA. Their residence was in Sea Cliff (seen in slideshow), a neighborhood in San Francisco.

Concerning what gives him a sense of wonder, Williams stated:

"My children give me a great sense of wonder. Just to see them develop into these extraordinary human beings." - from Wikipedia

Actor Al Quinn, who resides in Fort Myers, Fla., had a few more words to share concerning this tragic loss.

"Overall, Robin Williams was one of the gifted talent that most would be envious of. All of us will miss him. What a talent. So long big fella."
