Colorado fans of Robin Williams, the iconic actor and comedian, flocked to the "Mork & Mindy" house in Boulder on Monday to pay their respects after news of his death spread.

Williams played the alien Mork on the late 1970s Boulder-set sitcom. U.S. Rep. Jared Polis was at the house at 1619 Pine St. last night:

Fans paid their respects through the evening, the Boulder Daily Camera reports:

A steady stream of supporters stopped by the old house Monday evening to leave flowers, hang signs with message of remembrance or simply sit quietly as the news sunk in that Williams had unexpectedly died at age 63.

"It's sad, especially considering how many people he made happy and made smile," Boulder's Liz Mac said, adding she particularly loved his stand-up comedy specials "He was so talented. He could become any character. He will be truly missed."

As part of a particularly noteworthy "Mork & Mindy" episode in 1979, Williams played a male cheerleader -- white cowboy boots and all -- during an actual Broncos game.
