Copy and pasted from Facebook:
Robin Williams was the first actor/famous person I could recognize as a child. I knew he was the voice of the Genie and that he was Mrs. Doubtfire, Peter Pan, and a number of other characters. He was a huge part of my childhood in that sense. I'll remember him most fondly as Sean Maguire in Good Will Hunting. RIP, thanks for the memories.

See, he was also one of the first actors I recognized my childhood as "Mork from Ork"... then sometime around age 7 when my dad brought home his "Reality: What a Concept" concert album. One of the first "adult" comedy albums I can remember.

My favorite bit, even from when I was a kid:
"A New York Echo:

Hello!! hello....

SHUT THE FUCK UP!""

I vividly remember people wearing "Mork suspenders" for awhile. We need to re-iterate that: he made rainbow suspenders popular.

Heck, I can remember when his career was considered on the downward, until he had a "comeback" with "Good Morning, Vietnam".

When he was just playing "Robin Williams", he was amusing and a ball of energy. I'd get annoyed when he tried to do his voices or impressions (like in that recent Snickers commercial). They weren't very good, but he did them with such energy that nobody seemed to really mind.

I've been watching Robin Williams movies since as long as I can remember. Popeye was my first, and probably my favorite, Robin Williams movie, but along the way there's The Birdcage, Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumani, Aladdin, Dead Poet Society, Insomina, and other movies I'm sure I stumbled over just naming movies that left a lasting impression or that I enjoyed for his performance.

The last movie I watched featuring him was 48 hours ago: Death to Smoochy. It's an AWFUL movie (as in so bad it's still watchable), but his performance is still amazing and almost makes you think it's actually really good.

Robin Williams was one of my childhood favorite actors because of his role in Jumanji and bicentennial man and was so shocked when i heard about his suicide and i don't even think it has properly sunk in that the man isn't alive anymore, especially due to the circumstances of his dead
