Zachary Pym Williams is the eldest son of Robin Williams, the star actor that died on Monday–Zachary is pretty much off the public radar, with a Twitter account with few posts, private Instagram and Facebook accounts, and few recent pictures available.
Zachary was born on April 11, 1983 to Williams and his first wife Valerie Velardi. Williams’ other two children, Zelda and Cody, were born to Williams’ second wife Marsha Garces.
While Zelda is very much in the public eye, being a prominent video game player as well as an actress, Zachary and Cody are hard to find. They didn’t appear in public much with their father and have stayed out of the limelight for the most part.
Williams did enjoy talking about all of them, including 31-year-old Zachary. He said back in 2007 to Movieline that Zachary was into acting in addition to Zelda.
“I thought, ‘Why? You have a degree in Linguistics. Why do you want to do that?'” he said of his son’s acting ambitions. “But he found he wanted to do it and I went, ‘Okay, dude,'” he said.

“It’s always things that for me are really interesting at this point in my life. For me, it’s great. Much more expensive than sea monkeys but you get to see amazing progress and see them grow and that for me is astonishing. And see them do things that you’re going, ‘Good luck.’ And I try and tell them the traps but they’ll learn them on their own.”
He later told the Daily Mail that Zachary had decided to pursue a business degree.
It’s unclear what profession Zachary is into at the moment, and he has not commented publicly on his father’s death. According to a Twitter account that appears to be his, he currently lives in San Francisco.
