August 13, 2014 Jimmy Fallon Pays Tribute to Robin Williams to honor the late comedian, choking back tears, before doing his best impersonation of the legend -

*update* Mashable 02 March 2016 (Wednesday): A tunnel with rainbow arches that connects the Golden Gate Bridge to greater Marin County has officially become the Robin Williams tunnel. The tunnel was unofficially known as the Waldo Tunnel. The California State Senate last year approved a resolution to change the tunnel's name to honor the late actor and comedian. Williams grew up and lived in the Bay Area. The two signs — one for each side of the tunnel — cost $3,000 that was paid for using private donations.

August 13, 2014 Jimmy Fallon Pays Tribute to Robin Williams Jimmy Fallon took time to honor the late comedian Robin Williams at the start of Tuesday's Tonight Show. "Before we get into the show, we, like all of you, were shaken up a bit last night when we learned that genius comedian and actor Robin Williams passed away. He's one of a kind. He's one in a million. He's unbelievable," Fallon said, choking back tears, before doing his best impersonation of the legend.

"And you'd watch him and you would cry laughing and you would think I am never going to see anyone like this human ever. It's just amazing," the host continued. "His brain was always thinking 10 steps ahead of what he was saying. He was like the Muhammad Ali of comedy."

Fallon then aired a clip of Williams' first Tonight Showappearance with Johnny Carson, before standing on his desk and quoting the famous Walt Whitman poem in tribute to Williams' early film Dead Poets Society.

Robin Williams’ three children have spoken of the “immeasurable loss” of their “father and best friend”
His daughter, Zelda Williams, talked of the last day they spent together on his recent birthday, when she and her brothers shared “gifts and laughter”. “He was always warm, even in his darkest moments,” the 25-year-old said.

His son, Zak Williams, said he will carry his father’s heart with him every day.
“I would ask those that loved him to remember him by being as gentle, kind, and generous as he would be,” he added. “Seek to bring joy to the world as he sought."

Cody Williams, the actor’s youngest child, said there were “no words strong enough to describe” his love and respect for his father. He added: “The world will never be the same without him. “I will miss him and take him with me everywhere I go for the rest of my life, and will look forward, forever, to the moment when I get to see him again.”

Zelda Williams Suspends Social Media in Wake of Father's Death
The 25-year-old actress and only daughter of the Mrs. Doubtfire star, shared a poignant quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupery's book The Little Prince on her Twitter page on the evening of Monday, Aug. 11, in memory of her dad.

"You - you alone will have the stars as no one else has them..." she wrote. “In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night... You - only you will have stars that can laugh."

Grieving Zelda finished the post with the words, "I love you. I miss you. I'll try to keep looking up, Z."

The world mourns as legendary actor Robin Williams is found dead.
Williams' wife Susan Schneider said she was 'heartbroken' and spoke of her family's 'profound grief' at her husband's death. "This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin's family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief.

Kevin Spacey, who was in the 2009 film Shrink alongside Williams, tweeted: "Robin Williams made the world laugh & think. I will remember & honor that. A great man, artist and friend. I will miss him beyond measure."

Fellow Good Will Hunting actor Minnie Driver said: “My Heart’s broken. Robin was a beautiful, kind soul. Can’t bear that he’s gone. So incredibly sorry for his family.”

Steven Spielberg, who directed Williams in Hook, said: "Robin was a lightning storm of comic genius and our laughter was the thunder that sustained him. He was a pal and I can't believe he's gone."

Former co-star John Travolta, who appeared alongside Williams in Old Dogs, said in a statement: "I've never known a sweeter, brighter, more considerate person than Robin. Robin's commitment as an artist to lifting our mood and making us happy is compared to none. He loved us all and we loved him back."

Robin Williams' legacy: A big heart for charity
On screen, Robin Williams was a whirlwind of energy. Off screen, Williams channeled that energy into charitable work. The late actor offered his time, money and celebrity name to over 50 charities and causes, according to Look to the Stars, a website that compiles the charitable works of celebrities.

One of his most visible efforts was fund-raising for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Williams began appearing in commercials and public service announcements for the hospital in 2004. St. Jude said Williams never charged a fee for his participation in any events or activities. Whenever he had an opportunity to meet patients and families he would do it. When you have a person of Robin's caliber, it helps sick kids forget about their diseases for a while." said Kelly Schulz, vice president of communications at St. Jude.

The same year, Williams joined the board of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, which raises money for spinal cord injury research. Williams served on the board for four years. Williams and Christopher Reeve, the actor and director, were roommates when they were students at the Juilliard performing arts school in New York. "Robin would do two or three dinners or events for us each year," said Peter Wilderotter, CEO of the foundation. "Many celebs have requirements about cars and who they will talk to, but Robin was the opposite. He showed up on his own and he stayed at our events and talked to everyone,"

Christopher Reeve ‘Wanted To Die’ Until Robin Williams Lifted His Spirits - A Look At Their Extraordinary Friendship
It was Williams who lifted Reeve’s spirits after a devastating accident in which he was thrown from a horse left him paralyzed. Reeve was quoted later as telling Barbara Walters that he “wanted to die” — until Williams’ visit. “I lay on my back, frozen, unable to avoid thinking the darkest thoughts,” Reeve wrote in his 1996 autobiography, Still Me. “For the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.”

Williams went on to support and advocate the Reeve Foundation which posted a tribute to the Dead Poets Society actor on their website: “While the world knew Robin Williams as an Oscar-winning actor, we knew a different side to the man whose smile was as big as his heart. While our hearts ache with the loss of our friend, it is unlikely Robin would want us to mourn his passing with silence, but to celebrate his life through laughter,” the site wrote. “Together, let’s remember Robin for the man who made the world laugh.”

His daughter, Zelda Williams, talked of the last day they spent together on his recent birthday, when she and her brothers shared “gifts and laughter”.“He was always warm, even in his darkest moments,” the 25-year-old said.“While I'll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there's minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions.”
