Robin Williams’ children, Zak and Zelda, have paid tribute to their father on the eighth anniversary of his tragic death.

The Goodwill Hunting Star committed suicide, aged 63, in his home in Paradise Bay, California in 2014.

Taking to Twitter, Zak shared a photo of his dad, accompanied with the message: “‘Dad, on the eighth anniversary of your passing, I’m remembering how incredibly kind and joyful you were.”

He added: “I deeply miss you you wonderful, hairy man and will be celebrating your life today. Love you so so much!”

Williams’ daughter, Zelda, also shared a quote on her Twitter from writer Haruki Murakami, which is seemingly related to suicide prevention.

It reads: “And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over.

“But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in.”

She also attached a thread of suicide prevention hotlines and requested her followers to include more helplines, if they knew any.

Williams took his life in 2014 after being misdiagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

It was not until an autopsy came back that revealed the comedian was battling Lewy Body dementia.

Williams’ son revealed that his dad was ‘frustrated’ with his health struggles before his death.

Speaking on The Genius Life podcast, he said: “What he was going through didn’t match one to one [with what] many Parkinson’s patients experiences. So, I think that was hard for him.

“There was a focus issue that frustrated him, there were issues associated with how he felt and also from a neurological perspective he didn’t feel great, he was very uncomfortable.”
