Robin Williams

1408057256_robin-williams-michael-fox-articleBy now everyone has most likely heard/read that Robin Williams has died. Over the past few days we have also learned that he committed suicide and that he was struggling with the early stages of Parkinson’s Disease.

Read the Daily and Sunday Express Article for more details and Michael J. Fox’s reaction.

The public at large has taken Mr. Williams’ death pretty hard and I am certainly a part of that public. I was a child when “Mork & Mindy” first aired and I even had a pair of the rainbow suspenders he made famous at the time. I grew up enjoying (most of) Mr. Williams’ performances and even when he got off track and seemed a bit out of control, he never failed to make me laugh.

I’ve been reading a lot of comedians calling him ‘The King’ of comedy and Neil McDonald refers to him as “the funniest man in the world” and I can’t say that they’re wrong. Groucho Marx is right up there on the list but Robin never seemed to ‘turn off’ when in the public eye.

His death is a great loss but even worse is the fact that he was struggling with something so troubling that he became overwhelmed and couldn’t handle it any longer. Suffering from depression myself I can empathize and hope that if there is something after death, he’s finally at peace. And if there is something after this life, I’m pretty certain that there are a lot more laughs being had.
