BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – Fans mourning the death of Robin Williams continued to flock Tuesday to the house made famous in his 1970s sitcom “Mork & Mindy.”
“He was a genius,” fan Anita Hamilton said, “and not only made us laugh, he made us cry, too, with some of the more serious things he did.”
Williams committed suicide, officials confirmed Tuesday, in his home near San Francisco.
“As if he had any idea how many lives he affected and how many people were so deeply touched by his loss,” fan Judy Cardell said. “It’s a very sad day.”
“Mork & Mindy” gave Williams his first big break. He played space alien Mork from Ork with actress Pam Dauber, who played Mindy.
On Monday, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis paid his respects at the 130-year-old home on Pine Street near Boulder’s downtown. Polis dressed as Mork and stood near a sign that read: “U will be missed Mork.” He said Williams helped put Boulder on the map.
Other signs read, “Thanks for all the funny movies,” and “Fly be free Robin.”
