When Robin Williams graduated from Redwood High School in Marin County, his classmates couldn’t help themselves: They voted him both “most humorous” and “least likely to succeed.” He topped them.


Williams became one of the world’s most successful entertainers, an actor and comedian whose energy animated characters who, like himself, seemed to be spinning hilariously out of control — sometimes into dark places that only the “most humorous” can understand.


Williams, whose first major role was as a lovable alien in the TV series “Mork & Mindy” but who soon graduated to films such as “Good Will Hunting,” “Dead Poets Society,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” and “Good Morning, Vietnam,” died Monday in what appears to be a suicide from asphyxiation, Marin County authorities said.
