4 years since the world lost one of its greatest comedians and actors.
Robin Williams was one of my childhood idols, I grew up watching films such as Jack, Aladdin and Jumanji. His constant upbeat demeanor and ability to make even the darkest situations funny was something I always admired.
His death was extremely shocking to nearly everyone my age. I remember when I heard he had died, I was working in a printing plant when news of his passing started to spread throughout the shop floor. Most worked silently that day and the following week consisted of discussions about Williams’ work and why he chose to take his own life.
Robin Williams will continue to remain one of the most talented, respected and impactful actors and comedians of his generation. Although he may be gone, his memory lives on through his work and in the thoughts of those impacted by his films.
RIP Robin Williams •
