Robin Williams was lovingly remembered by his children on what would have been the late actor’s 72nd birthday.
Zak Williams shared a photo on Instagram Friday of his dad from the movie “Good Morning Vietnam.”
“Happy 72nd Dad!” he captioned the pic.
“Was remembering how much I used to love that look you’d give. That look with a mischievous, loving grin that your friends and loved ones knew so well. Joyous and curious and wondrous.”
Zak, 40, concluded, “Miss you and love you forever!”
The actor is the only child from Robin’s marriage to Valerie Velardi, which ended in 1988. However, he has two half-siblings from the comedian’s second marriage.
Zak has often remembered his late father since the beloved movie star passed away at age 63 in August 2014.
Last year, he shared a photo on Instagram of Robin wearing biking gear, and captioned it, “I’ll be remembering you today as you would want to be remembered, in spandex. Miss you and love you always!”
In 2021, Zak posted a black-and-white photo of his dad on Instagram, writing alongside it, “Dad, on what would be your 70th birthday, I would want you to know that your incredible spirit lives within us.
“Our family will be celebrating you and your memory today. We miss you and love you always!”

Robin’s only daughter, Zelda, also took to social media to commemorate her father Friday.
“Happy birthday to Poppo, who definitely would’ve been out there fighting the good fight for art and artists today and always,” the 33-year-old tweeted, referencing the current actors’ and Writer’s Guild of America strike, alongside an old photo of Robin at a picket line.
Robin shared Zelda and her brother Cody, who does not appear to have social media, with Marsha Garces. The former couple was married from 1989 to 2010.
Robin died by suicide after a long battle with depression. The “Mrs. Doubtfire” star dealt with mental health issues after he had been misdiagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
Robin’s autopsy revealed he actually suffered from Lewy body dementia, which can cause behavioral changes, including hallucinations, delusions or changes in mood.
