The Full House star was found dead on January 9 in a Florida hotel room after performing in the state as part of a stand-up tour the night before. In a statement, the Saget family said: “Authorities have determined that Bob passed away from head trauma.
They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, didn’t think about it and went to sleep. No drugs or alcohol were involved. Last month, authorities said the 65-year-old man was found in his hotel bed at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando and there was no sign of foul play.
A hotel security officer entered the room after the comedian failed to leave and called emergency services when he was found unconscious. Deputies and paramedics arrived at the room and pronounced him dead.
In the statement, the family added that they were overwhelmed with “the incredible outpouring of love from Bob’s fans” and that they were comforted by it.
As we continue to grieve together, we ask everyone to remember the love and laughter Bob brought into this world, and the lessons he taught us all: to be kind to everyone, to let the people you love know you love them, and to face difficult times with hugs and laughter,” the statement added. Saget was best known for his role as Danny Tanner on the ABC sitcom Full House, which ran from 1987 to 1995.
Its sequel, Fuller House, premiered on Netflix in 2016. He also hosted America’s funniest home videos of the ’90s and lent his voice to the future Ted Mosby in How I Met Your Mother.
His 2014 comedy album That’s What I’m Talkin’ About was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album. The star had been on tour as part of her I Don’t Do Negative Comedy Tour at the time of her death.
After warm audience receptions to his concerts in Orlando and in the tourist area of Ponte Vedra Beach, he celebrated online. I’m back in comedy like when I was 26. Guess I’m finding my new voice and loving every moment of it,” she posted on Instagram.
