Actor Robin Williams dies, Abdul-Jabbar extends condolences – PHOTOS

abdul-jabbar-williams-4Actor Robin Williams, 63, died on Monday, as he was found dead at his home in Tiburon, Calif., just north of San Francisco, according to the Marin County Sheriff’s Office.

The apparent cause of death was suicide by asphyxiation, although an investigation is continuing.

Emergency personnel found Mr. Williams inside the house he shared with his wife, Susan Schneider, after a 911 call reported a man unconscious and not breathing.

Mr. Williams’s high energy at times masked a personal struggle with alcohol and drug addiction, and a representative for the actor said Monday that “he has been battling severe depression of late.”

NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar reacted to this sad news by posting several pictures of him with Williams on his Facebook page, saying “It will be hard to forget someone who gave us all so much to remember.RIP.”
