Rob Williams has been found dead at age 63.
Monday at 11:55am, Marin County Communications received a call from Tiburon, CA. Williams was found passed out and not breathing.
Williams’ death has been speculated to be caused by suicide, as a representative for the actor said that “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss.”
The actor stared in classics such as Aladdin, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Dead Poet’s Society, just to name a few.
William’s wife, Susan Schneider released a statement saying, “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.”
Fans took to social media to express their feeling of loss. Photos of the famous actor were captioned with some of his most well-known quotes, from both his films, and speeches he has given.
A press conference will be held today, Tuesday, August 12th at 11am. Although right now the leading cause of death is believed to be asphyxia, only further investigations could reveal his final hours and cause of death.
