New Delhi: Robin Williams, the man who carved the ultimate funniest characters on screen with his ever-so-intriguing acting prowess has passed away.

For his overwhelming contribution to the cinema, he has been considered as the comic genius.

Williams, who was found dead in his California home Monday night, is the one who defined the gamut of emotions by making us laugh and cry each time we watched him on screen.

Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor three times, Williams received the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Good Will Hunting. He also received two Emmy Awards, four Golden Globe Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and five Grammy Awards.

His death has been mourned tragically not only by the industry people, but even by whom he touched the soul of.

The U.S. President Obama too has issued a touching statement expressing how much he felt hurt with the arrival of the news. “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 said.

“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,” the President added.

After he was found dead at his residence, Marin County, California, the probable reason of his death has been deemed to be Asphyxia, a severe condition wherein an individual feels unable to acquire sufficient oxygen or breath for his/her body.

While myriads of his fans are still resistant to believe that Robin Williams is no more here, many others have issued rich wishes for the man.

The social networking sites are already decked up with the statements expressing condolences, showing how difficult it is to register the news of the actor's death.

Robin Williams will always remain alive in the wits of his dear fans for the many memorable performances he molded himself in.

 The great characters of Popeye, Adrian Cronauer,  King of the Moon, John Keating, Dr. Malcolm Sayer, Henry "Parry" Saganm, Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire, Armand Goldman and Sean Maguire are his few most popular roles on screen amongst many others widely appreciated ones.

We mourned this loss to the industry too!
