The shocking news of the passing of actor and comic Robin Williams was surprising news after my work day ended on Monday, August 11th, 2014.  I was hoping for a social media hoax.Is this a news event that you will know exactly what you were doing on each years anniversary of the death of Robin Williams?

I liken this Robin Williams event to that of the Reagan shooting, the June 2009 death of Michael Jackson and to the death of Elvis Presley.  Every time that the Reagan shooting is brought up, I remember back as to what I was doing.

The day of the Reagan shooting, I was visiting my parents in South Dakota while traveling to Minnesota to attend broadcast school in March of 1981.  When the announcement that Elvis had died, I was inside my family home in Frenchtown, Montana watching the Price is Right with my mother on a hot August day in 1977.

The death of Robin Williams I had just gone out to my back porch to fire up the grill for dinner.  My wife was watering the tomatoes and I was checking Facebook which was blowing up with Robin Williams news!

Do you recall what you were doing at the exact moment of the announcement of Robin Williams passing?  My first memory of Robin Williams?  The Mork and Mindy television show!
