President Obama Responds To Robin Williams' Death: 'He Was One Of A Kind' [View all]

Source: Huffington Post

President Barack Obama expressed his condolences on Monday to the family and friends of comic and actor Robin Williams, who died in an apparent suicide earlier that day.

Williams, 63, was found dead around noon on Monday at his home in Tiburon, California.

The president commemorated Williams for his "immeasurable talent" in the statement:

Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien – but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most – from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets. The Obama family offers our condolences to Robin’s family, his friends, and everyone who found their voice and their verse thanks to Robin Williams.
