You’ve probably heard by now that Robin Williams—father, husband, master story teller, funniest of funny men, all-around kind, warm, and soulful actor who gave us some of the most memorable entertainment moments ever in a career that spanned nearly 40 years—died today, in his home, of an apparent suicide at age 63. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
While we are trying to gather our thoughts, to imagine what it will be like to live in a world without Robin Williams in it, here are some of the moments that will make us love him forever.
From Dead Poet’s Society:
From Good Morning Vietnam:
From Good Will Hunting:
From Mrs. Doubtfire
From Patch Adams:
And, last, though this is sad for all of us who enjoyed his work, it’s obviously truly tragic for Williams’ children. This was his last tweet, via Instagram, a birthday message to his daughter Zelda on her 25th birthday:
“Happy Birthday to Ms. Zelda Rae Williams! Quarter of a century old today but always my baby girl. Happy Birthday. Love you!”
