Williams left behind his wife Susan Schneider, and children Zelda Rae Williams, Cody Allen Williams, and Zachary Pym Williams.
Schneider issued a statement following Williams’ death.
“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken,” said Schneider, 48, in a statement.
“As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”
Williams publicist Mara Buxbaum said in a statement that Williams was battling “severe depression.”
“This is a tragic and sudden loss,” she said. “The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”
