Robin Williams (real name: Robin McLaurin Williams) was an American actor and comedian.

Born in Chicago, Williams began performing stand-up comedy in San Francisco and Los Angeles during the mid-1970s, and is credited with leading San Francisco’s comedy renaissance.

After rising to fame playing the alien Mork in the sitcom Mork & Mindy (spun off from Happy Days), Williams established a career in both stand-up comedy and feature film acting.

Robin Williams was known for his improvisation skills and the wide variety of memorable character voices he created. Robin Williams has been voted the funniest person of all time.

How did Robin Williams die:

On August 11, 2014, Robin Williams committed suicide in his Paradise Cay, California home.

His body was cremated at Montes Chapel of the Hills in San Anselmo and his ashes were scattered over San Francisco Bay the day after his death.

The final autopsy report, released in November 2014, concluded that he “died of ‘asphyxia due to hanging'”.

Robin Williams was also found with superficial wounds to his hands and arms, most likely caused by a pocketknife lying nearby.

Neither alcohol nor illegal drugs were involved, and prescription drugs present in his body were at “therapeutic” levels.

The report also noted that Robert Williams had been suffering “a recent increase in paranoia”.

An examination of his brain tissue suggested Williams suffered from “diffuse Lewy body dementia” — more commonly called diffuse Lewy body disease and refers to the underlying disease process—and the umbrella term, Lewy body dementia—which encompasses both Parkinson’s disease dementia (PD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB).

Describing the disease as “the terrorist inside my husband’s brain”, his wife Susan Schneider said, “however you look at it—the presence of Lewy bodies took his life,” referring to his previous diagnosis of Parkinson’s.

According to LBDA spokesperson Dennis Dickson, “The report confirms he experienced depression, anxiety and paranoia, which may occur in either Parkinson’s disease or dementia with Lewy bodies.
