A brilliant comic mind with a soulful spirit, Robin Williams battled addiction and depression for much of his life, even as he kept millions laughing.

"I used to go to two or three clubs a night and then go to four or five people's houses, just keep going, going," Williams told PEOPLE in 1982. "The myth of living fast, dying young affected me, but I've come out on the other side of it."
