Robin Williams Dies at 63...
« on: 08/11/2014 03:31 PM »
...Academy Award-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams died Monday in a suspected suicide, the Marin County Sheriff’s Office said. He was 63.

He was one funny guy - I can't recall the number of times I laughed so hard at him that I cried... very sorry to heat he is gone. :sad:

Very sad indeed.

One of my all time favorite comedian/stand up/actor.

May he rest in peace.

Damn what that Hollywood life does to people.  A sad, sad loss.

One of my favorites.  Very sad.  He was a hero of mine even when I was a teen, and I remember sneaking in to one of his standup shows in Philly in 1978 just before Mork and Mindy became a TV show.

Yeah very, very sad. Even rich and famous people have their demons though. Look at Heath Ledger as well. It may be worse for them actually because it's got to be difficult with who you can trust and talk to.

Big, big loss.
