Since the death of Robin Williams, Boston fans have transformed the bench used in the film Good Will Hunting into a memorial. Brian Ries of Mashable writes…

Fans of the departed comedian Robin Williams are leaving tributes at real-world locations tied to film settings and landmarks from his illustrious career: the Mork and Mindy house, his Hollywood Walk of Fame star, and now, the Good Will Hunting bench.

Williams, as Sean Maguire, gave a stirring monologue to Matt Damon’s character that ended with the now-timeless remark, “Your move, chief.”

Fans of the legendary actor and comedian Robin Williams, who died Monday, turned a bench where Williams and Matt Damon shared a scene in the classic Boston movie “Good Will Hunting” into a makeshift memorial Monday night, leaving flowers and writing quotes from the film on the ground.

A petition has been created to place a bronze statue of Williams seated at the iconic bench.
