Bob Saget has died at 65 after being found in his hotel room in Orlando, Florida. No word on cause of death but Police were quick to report that they found no foul play or drug use. Bob had just performed a show on Saturday night, and was in great spirits, even tweeting after the show that he is ‘happily addicted’ again to stand up. His body was discovered sometime before 4:00 P.M yesterday by hotel security.
Loved tonight’s show @PV_ConcertHall in Jacksonville. Appreciative audience. Thanks again to @RealTimWilkins for opening. I had no idea I did a 2 hr set tonight. I’m happily addicted again to this shit. Check https://t.co/nqJyTiiezU for my dates in 2022. pic.twitter.com/pEgFuXxLd3

Best known of course for playing Danny Tanner on Full House and Fuller House, and as the narrator on How I Met Your Mother. He was also the original host of America’s Funniest Home Videos (1989 to 1997). Bob was married to Kelly Rizzo, a digital TV host, and leaves behind three children. As you can imagine, so many celebrities from former co-workers to admirers are tweeting condolences. Including John Stamos and Dave Coultier took to Twitter to talk about their friend. Even Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen told ABC “Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man. We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide as gracefully as he always has.”
Here are the tributes, as many continue to pour in:
I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby.

There wasn’t a kinder person in Hollywood than Bob Saget. I am having trouble wrapping my head around this. I do not want to believe this. It’s all too much to handle.

I'm stunned beyond belief — @bobsaget has died. I'm confused and sad here… I just spoke with him a couple days ago and we just had the most beautiful podcast chat over the holidays. I loved him. I can not believe this.

I’m so shocked at @bobsaget’s passing. One of the most kind & thoughtful people I’ve ever come across & he just happened to be one of the funniest on the planet. I will miss you so much Bob. Love you dear friend. I’m so sorry @kellyrizzo. And so sorry to the rest of the family.

I know that people lose loved ones, good people, every day. No one gets a pass. But the loss of Bob Saget hits deep. If you didn’t know him, he was kind and dear and cared about people deeply. He was the definition of “a good egg”. Too soon he leaves. #RipBobSaget
