Flowers left by well-wishers are seen outside the home of actor and comedian Robin Williams in Tiburon, California

By Sarah McBride TIBURON Calif. (Reuters) – In Robin Williams’ northern California neighborhood, far from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, a stunned and saddened community remembered a low-key man who loved bike riding and never got too famous for a playful wave or banter. He would live unrecognized and just keep to himself,” said Johanna Denning, a neighbor who often saw Williams riding his bike amid low-slung houses with views of the San Francisco Bay. Sonja Conti said the Oscar-winning actor would often ask about her dog, which he nicknamed “Dude.” Having Williams around “wasn’t like having a celebrity. “People left him alone.” Sorrow and shock has poured out from family, friends, Hollywood heavy hitters and U.S. President Barack Obama, but Williams’ death took a personal toll on neighbors, for whom his giddy playfulness and entourage-free lifestyle provided a refreshing thrill.
