Today a great talent was lost. Robin Williams was found dead this morning due to alleged self strangulation. The last few year Williams has been dealing with depression and recently entered a 12 step program for drug addiction.
His wife Susan Schneider released a statement saying “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 is probably best known for his Oscar Winning role Sean Maguire in the critically acclaimed movie Good Will Hunting. He is also known for his role in Mrs. Doubtfire and The Genie in Aladdin. He has been nominated for four Academy Awards and winner of four Best Supporting Actor.
He is a great talent that will be sorely missed and my prayers go out to his family.
