Besides penning memorable lines from Williams’ Oscar-winning performance at the Boston Public Garden bench that he and Matt Damon made famous in Good Will Hunting, fans in Colorado have gathered outside the Boulder home where the late ’70s television series Mork & Mindy was set (see photo above).
The comedian broke through on the ABC sitcom, starring opposite Pam Dawber as Mork, an alien who comes to Earth from the planet Ork in an egg-shaped spaceship. A spinoff of Happy Days, Mork & Mindy earned Williams his first Emmy nomination for lead actor in a comedy series.
Over in Hollywood, the actor’s star on the Walk of Fame has become a makeshift memorial, covered with flowers, candles and props like a nose similar to the one he wore in a scene in Patch Adams.
The Laugh Factory in Hollywood also cleared its marquee to note the comedian’s passing:
The Improv in Hollywood also noted his lasting legacy:

And some fans have stopped by the late actor’s actual residence in Tiburon to leave a token of tribute.
