In Memoriam: Robin Williams July 21, 1951 - August 11, 2014

We are incredibly saddened and heartbroken by the death of Robin Williams. Hearing of the passing of any human being is such a  terribly tragic thing,even more so when they leave  before their time, however it seems so much more painful this time.  At first thought most people  said to themselves, " It can’t possibly be real, can it?" Not Robin Williams; not the man who brought so much joy to so many in his almost 40-year career in film and television. For the staff here at WITIN RADIO , Williams was a ball of livewire energy who would explode into a character and create magic through his timing, his way with words, his smile, his heart. We’re  are a staff made up of children of the ’80s and ’90s and Robin Williams was and is a huge part of that. He was Peter Pan; he was the Genie in Aladdin ; he was Daniel Hillard of Mrs. Doubtfire .

Robin Williams was much  more than just a comedian and an entertainer in family movies; he was also a very accomplished actor of drama. Williams was nominated for four Oscars in his career, one for Good Morning Vietnam in 1987, Dead Poets Society in 1990, The Fisher King in 1991, and lastly for Good Will Hunting in 1997 for which he finally won. Those are but a glimpse at the kind of deep and varied roles he took in his career which spanned well over 100 film and television roles. We were always excited  and intrigued when Robin Williams was in a movie, no matter the role, because we knew what his name would mean for the role.

It’s simply  impossible to put into words exactly what someone like that can mean to a generation of young people. He was essentially an icon and an iconoclast of his time. Who among us has not seen Aladdin, Hook, Mrs. Doubtfire, etc. etc. a thousand times? Robin Williams’ boundless energy,as well as his deep well of talent, and ability to light up a stage or a screen with his very grin was and is unmatched. The world is a lot darker, drabber, and less exciting today without him.

Robin Williams was 63, and he left a very long and beloved verse indeed.
