Robin Williams has officially been laid to rest.

According to the late star’s death certificate, the Oscar winner has been cremated and his ashes scattered in San Francisco bay.

The document also states lists Williams’ cause of death as "pending investigation” and states his funeral took place at Monte’s Chapel of the Hills, a funeral home in San Anselmo, California.

Williams, of course, was found dead in his home on August 11, having seemingly taken his own life.


His body was discovered by his personal assistant and the coroner has confirmed that Williams died by asphyxia, explaining that he hanged himself with his own belt after trying to slit his left wrist with a pocket knife.

Three days after this tragedy, Susan Schneider said in a statement that her husband had been suffering from severe depression and had recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease.

The official cause of death is expected be ruled within the next few weeks, pending results of toxicology tests.

Tributes to Williams, meanwhile, continue to pour in, including David Letterman taking 10 minutes on air to remember his friend and the cast of Aladdin on Broadway leading a singalong in the late actor’s honor.
