After news broke that Robin Williams had committed suicide back in August, fans mourned the loss of one of the sharpest comedic minds the world has ever known.

While his existing body of work will be enjoyed for generations to come, it seemed impossible to imagine that someone so lively and animated as Williams would never again grace the screen with his distinct blend of manic energy and real human emotion.
