On January 9, 2022, famous actor, TV host, and stand-up comedian Bob Saget passed away at the age of 65. He was found dead in his Orlando hotel room. His autopsy showed his cause of death was from a stroke.

On the day of his death, his family called the hotel’s security because Saget was not answering his phone. He was found deceased in his room after hotel security checked his room. There were no signs of drugs or foul play at the scene. The day after his death, the coroner completed an autopsy, discovering that he had a fatal stroke.  

“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,” the Saget family states. 

Bob Saget was famous for his role of Danny Tanner in Full House and Fuller House. The role of Danny Tanner was a nice, sweet, “clean freak dad.” Once you see these shows, you will think Saget is truly Danny Tanner. Many people believe that Saget fits the role of Danny Tanner for being a sweet person. 

“I don’t know what to say. I have no words. Bob was one of the best human beings I’ve ever known in my life. I loved him so much,” says Candace Cameron Bure.

On the other hand, they were people not affected by his death because they didn’t like him. Throughout the past couple of years, there has been rumors about how Bob Saget used to sexually assault the Olsen twins during the time they were filming Full House. He also made nasty jokes as it was his stand-up comedy that many people took offense at. 

“I am glad he died, after everything he did. I did not at all ever care after his death,” says Sophia Guerrero (11).

Even though some people here at Segerstrom hate him and some love him, Bob Saget’s death is one of the many debates happening here at school. For work as a comedian and as an actor in iconic television shows, Bob Saget’s death is something that Segerstrom’s students and staff will not forget.
