Oklahomans react to Robin Williams’ death

OKLAHOMA CITY - Comedic actor Robin Williams died at his Northern California home Monday, law enforcement officials said. Williams was 63.

Coroner investigators suspect "the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia," according to a statement from the Marin County, California, Sheriff's office.

Many Oklahomans were sad to hear the news of Williams' death.

Kayla Howell is young, but was still a big fan.

"He was one of my favorites. I really loved Flubber, it was one of my favorites.  He was so funny. I can't believe he died."

Ben Theiss said he has so many fond memories of the star.

"It's a real bad situation because he actually makes a lot of people happy.  I grew up watching his TV shows like Mork and Mindy and Mrs. Doubtfire is one of my favorite movies. He always seems happy."

Mychal Scott said he was also sad to hear of Williams' apparent suicide.

"That's one of the greatest comedians. That's Mrs. Doubtfire. That's strange to even here something like that.  They brought joy to everybody and he's gone now. How can you suffer from depression when you bring so much joy to everyone else."
