'He made people laugh': Bob Saget's grave gets headstone with touching epitaph 9 months after his death
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Bob Saget, a legendary comedian, died unexpectedly nine months ago, and his grave now has a headstone. The inspirational inscription for the 'Full House' legend reads, "Loving & devoted husband, father, son, uncle, brother & friend. He brought people together and made them laugh. A very great man."
The 'Entourage' star's complete name, Robert L Saget, is spelled out on his headstone, along with the dates of his birth, May 12, 1956, and his tragic death, January 9, 2022. In February, his family stated that Saget died from a brain bleed after knocking his head on something and falling asleep while fully oblivious to the severity of the serious harm. The 65-year-old man was discovered dead on January 9 at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando. He was scheduled to perform more stand-up comedy after finishing his previous set.
Saget's family has reported that the cause of death was determined by the medical examiners to be head trauma. A bruise was left on the back of his head, however, it is unclear what he struck his head against. Officials suspect it might have been the headboard of the bed, but they are unable to confirm it, according to TMZ.
Saget's family claimed that when he went to sleep, he was unaware of it. The family released a statement saying, "The authorities have determined that Bob passed away from head trauma. They concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it, and went to sleep. No drugs or alcohol were involved."
Florida medical examiner Joshua Stephany confirmed the cause of death in a toxicology report released on Thursday (February 10) stating that Bob's death was "the result of blunt head trauma," according to People. On January 14, in Los Angeles, a private funeral for the late performer was held.
John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweeten, Mary-Kate Olsen, and Ashley Olsen from the cast of 'Full House', along with friends and coworkers Jimmy Kimmel, Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, and John Mayer, all attended the funeral.
The 'Surviving Suburbia' star had three daughters—Aubrey, 35, Lara, 32, and Jennifer, 29—from his first marriage Sherri Kramer, 65. In 2018, he married 42-year-old 'Eat Travel Rock TV' star Kelly Rizzo after being single for more than 20 years. The late actor committed his time and skills to the Scleroderma Research Foundation when his sister, Gay Saget, died in 1994 from the uncommon condition that causes the skin to stiffen and tighten.
