As an actor and comedian, Robin Williams left behind countless films that will be enjoyed for generations to come. In interviews Williams said the role he relished most was that of a family man. He opened up about his love for his family during an interview while promoting the film 'Old Dogs.':
'They give you a chance at your legacy. And they're the thing that carries on beyond you and really does give you a chance to go. You get to be young by proxy and experience their things and see the joy that they have when you really do connect with them. There's something that's ageless – that's the good part."
