A local Sheriff on Sunday disclosed that a popular United States Comedian Bob Saget, was found dead in a Florida hotel room.
A tweet from the Orange County Sheriff reads, “Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room. The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.”
The comedian thrilled millions as the star of television’s show “Full House” in the 1980s and 1990s.
Saget, who was 65, starred as Danny Tanner, the widowed father of three girls, and his efforts to raise them and was assisted by his brother-in-law Jesse and friend Joey to form the heart of the popular “Full House” sitcom.
‘Full House’ ran for eight seasons, from 1987-1995, on ABC. Netflix aired a sequel focusing on one of Danny’s daughters, DJ Tanner, which ran from 2016-2020.
Saget, who was also a popular host of America’s Funniest Home Videos, had been touring the country recently.
Just hours before his death was announced, he tweeted to say what fun he had had doing a show in Jacksonville.
He is survived by his wife Kelly Rizzo and three children.
