"Robin Williams was a cultural hero of mine. In the encounters and interactions I was able to share with him, he was always gentle and generous, humane and thoughtful and hilarious," Itzkoff said in a statement. Itzkoff wrote Williams' obituary and his profile for the
newspaper in 2009.

Williams committed suicide on August 11. His family said that the Oscar-winning actor, who took part in 'Mrs Doubtfire', 'Good Will Hunting', 'Dead Poets Society' and Good Morning, Vietnam' among others, had been battling depression and Parkinson's Disease prior to his passing at the age of 63.
