Robin Williams the Legendary Comedian passes away

Robin Williams passes away at 63. The death is being treated as a suicide, according to a release issued this afternoon by the Marin County sheriff's office. "At this time, the Sheriff's Office Coroner Division suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia, but a comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made."

Williams's publicist told The Hollywood Reporter: "Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time."

Sheriff's office: Robin Williams committed suicide by hanging himself at his California home."
In a press conference, the Marin County sheriff also said that Williams was discovered by his assistant in a seated position with a belt around his neck, wedged between a door and doorframe in a "room in the house." He would not discuss whether there was a suicide note found at the scene.

Williams was best known for his starring roles in classic comedies like "Mrs. Doubtfire," "Good Morning, Vietnam" and "Jumanji," but also in acclaimed dramas such as "Dead Poets Society." He won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Dr. Sean Maguire in "Good Will Hunting." He rose to fame while playing Mork the alien in the TV show "Mork & Mindy," a "Happy Days" spinoff.
In "Dead Poets Society," Williams plays John Keating, an electric English teacher at an elite all-boys high school. In a quintessential speech, Keating tells his students
RIP Robin Williams
 
The death of Williams has shaken Hollywood, and colleagues mourned the loss of what many called a big-hearted man and one of the most inventive comedians of his time.
'Robin was a lightning storm of comic genius and our laughter was the thunder that sustained him,' said Steven Spielberg, who directed Williams as Peter Pan in the 1991 film, Hook.
More tributes poured in after the shocking news of Robin Williams' death broke on Monday.
Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Martin were amongst the first to pay their respects to the late actor, whose tragic death aged 63 at his Tiburon, California home is being treated as suspected suicide.
'I can’t believe the news about Robin Williams. He gave so much to so many people. I’m heartbroken,' Ellen tweeted after hearing the news.
Williams' three children, Zak, Zelda, and Cody Williams, and his ex-wife, Marsha Garces Williams, have released statements:

 His wife, Susan Schneider, said: "This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists 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."

"Yesterday, I lost my father and a best friend and the world got a little grayer. I will carry his heart with me every day. I would ask those that loved him to remember him by being as gentle, kind, and generous as he would be. Seek to bring joy to the world as he sought." - Zak Williams

"My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that's gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I'll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there's minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn't help the pain, but at least it's a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that. To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you've had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too … Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I've ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We'll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again."- Zelda Williams

"There are no words strong enough to describe the love and respect I have for my father. The world will never be the same without him. I will miss him and take him with me everywhere I go for the rest of my life, and will look forward, forever, to the moment when I get to see him again."- Cody Williams
"My heart is split wide open and scattered over the planet with all of you. Please remember the gentle, loving, generous — and yes, brilliant and funny — man that was Robin Williams. My arms are wrapped around our children as we attempt to grapple with celebrating the man we love, while dealing with this immeasurable loss." -Marsha Garces Williams

Update 9:22 p.m.: The Obamas have issued the following statement about Williams:
Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien — but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most — from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets. The Obama family offers our condolences to Robin's family, his friends, and everyone who found their voice and their verse thanks to Robin Williams.
Update 9:44 p.m.: The Academy has put out a heart-wrenching tweet to commemorate the actor:
