To those growing up in the 90's he was Danny Tanner on the beloved sitcom "Full House" and the regular host of "America's Funniest Home Videos". To older audiences, his stand-up routines were as vulgar and raunchy as they come. At the 65, comedian Bob Saget has died at the age of 65 years old.
In a statement by Saget's family, "We are devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob passed away today. He was everything to us and we want you to know how much he loved his fans, performing live and bringing people from all walks of life together with laughter. Though we ask for privacy at this time, we invite you to join us in remembering the love and laughter that Bob brought to the world."
Remembering is exactly what the entertainment industry is doing as countless of former co-stars and comedians reflect on the legacy of such a unique comedic voice. John Stamos who played Uncle Jesse alongside Saget on "Full House" tweeted, "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." Another "Full House" cast member, Candace Cameron Bure, also tweeted, "I don't know what to say. I have no words. Bob was one of the best humans beings I've ever known in my life. I loved him so much."
Bob Saget was pronounced dead at the scene inside his hotel room Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes, as released in a statement by Orange County Sheriff's Office. It was also stated in the report that there were no signs of foul play or drug involvement in Saget's death.
An official cause of death is set to be released following the medical examiner's report which should arrive in the next few days.
