Oscar-winning actor and comic Robin Williams died Monday at 63 of an apparent suicide, the Marin County Sheriff's Department confirmed.

Around 11:55 a.m. Monday, sheriff's officials said, a 911 call came in about a man who was unresponsive in his home in Tiburon. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Dubbed “the funniest man alive” by Entertainment Weekly in 1997, Williams brought audiences hours of laughter, putting his imaginative spin on characters in film and television. He was lauded for his serious roles as well, winning a best supporting actor Oscar for his performance as Sean Maguire, the therapist who counsels Matt Damon’s math genius in “Good Will Hunting” (1997), and receiving nominations for “The Fisher King” (1991), “Dead Poets Society” (1989) and “Good Morning, Vietnam” (1987).

Born in Chicago in 1951, Williams became one of only two students accepted into John Houseman’s prestigious acting program at Julliard, the other being Christopher Reeve, who became a lifelong friend.

Williams gained fame as Mork, the bizarre, suspenders-sporting alien on the sitcom “Mork & Mindy,” a spinoff from “Happy Days.” Williams departed from the script so often that producers intentionally left blank moments on page for Williams to have space to indulge his ad-libbing genius.

My brother told me and I told him to shut up and I seriously can't talk to anyone right now.

Too surreal. I actually thought it was a hoax when I read what happened. He was a fantastic actor who will be greatly missed.

Yeah!! Like, there's always a hoax that he died on the internet circling around, but when I got 5 texts about it I knew this was real.

I don't even know what to do with anything right now.

Aww man.

I think it speaks volumes how every post on my tumble and twitter is about him. It just goes to show how much of an impact he made on the world. He'll be forever missed and I'll be forever grateful for all the times he's made me laugh when no one else could.

And that's not even mentioning his other work aside from comedy.

Everyone feels like they've lost a friend or a funny uncle. He's been such a huge part of everyone's lives (ESPECIALLY ours here), and this hurts in a special kind of way no one can quite pin point.

Yes--that's what someone was telling me too, it's like losing your super funny uncle and that's kind of what it feels like.

He touched so many lives.

I found out when I saw it on the news in the bar at work earlier this evening. I had to read it several times to accept it as reality then stepped out for a small time to grieve.

He was my favorite actor, and I'm sure I speak for everybody here when I say that his contribution to my life was so meaningful, that there is a special kind of hole in my heart tonight.

I thank God for the laughs and for the ever-beating lessons of the heart many of Mr. Williams' characters have left in my life and the lives of millions others, and I pray for healing for those in mourning tonight, especially his family.

My friends, even though we have never met, if you ever hurt to the point of not wanting to live, I BEG you to get help. You are loved beyond how far you can see, and I and others are here for you and would be empty without you.
