What Robin told Steve

Steve Carrigan, Stockton’s economic development director until 2009, writes:

“My good friend, Steve Pinkerton, was very close in his description of the elusive Robin Williams connection to Stockton but I want to clear up a few things up.

“Let history show that Robin Williams married Marsha Garces-Williams, his children’s nanny. They hired a new nanny and that’s the girl I dated for three years. During this time period, Robin was at the top of his game with Mrs. Doubtfire and Jumanji in the theaters and both had  gross ticket sales over $100 million each, a record at the time.

“I once asked Robin to give me some advice on life and he stopped, thought for a second, said in his gentle warm voice, “Be bold, Steven. They’ll remember you.’”

“He was a good man, and one of a kind.”

Carrigan is now city Manager of Los Banos.
