President Obama Remembers Robin Williams: “One of a Kind”
posted by:Castina

By now, you’ve all heard: Academy Award-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams was found dead at his home in Northern California on Monday. He was 63.

According to a statement from the Marin County Sheriff’s Office in California, coroners suspect “the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia.” Once CBS News confirmed Williams’ death, news of Mrs. Doubtfire star’s passing spread like wildfire across social media. Celebrities sent their heartfelt condolences to Williams’ family while commemorating their favorite “Robin Moments” on the small screen and the silver screen.

President Obama was among the high-profile mourners. Similar to the memorial statement he released shortly after the passing of pop great Michael Jackson in 2009, the Commander-in-Chief remembered Robin Williams in a press release issued overnight:

“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.”

Williams was last seen alive at the home he shared with his wife of 13 years, graphic designer Susan Schneider, at approximately 10 a.m. Marin County deputies responded to an emergency call from the Williams residence in Tiburon at 11:55 a.m. The frantic caller reported that “a male adult had been located unconscious and not breathing.” Williams was pronounced dead at 12:02 p.m.

Williams underwent rehab drug treatment at least twice in the past decade, including early this summer. While the star’s longtime rep would not comment of authorities’ suspicions that the death was a suicide, the PR agent acknowledge that the father of three had been “battling severe depression of late.”
