Remembering Robin Williams

- (NBC News) Acclaimed actor and comedian Robin Williams was found dead of an apparent suicide Monday at his Tiburon, California home.

Williams had been battling severe depression, according to his publicist.

Neighbors said he appeared to lead a normal, ordinary life at home, a contrast to the extraordinary world he created as an actor and comedian.

The Juilliard trained actor also excelled in dramatic roles, like "Good Will Hunting" which brought him a Best Supporting Actor Oscar.

Williams' wife released a statement saying, "It is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions."
