Bob Saget’s cause of death has been revealed: He hit his head on something, did not know the severity of the injury and fell asleep. He died from a brain bleed. Bob Saget, the legendary comedian and “Full House” star who was found dead on Jan. 9 in a Florida hotel at the age of 65, died of head trauma, his family said on Wednesday. His Family Confirms 1 Month After He Was Found Dead in Orlando Hotel.
“The authorities have determined that Bob passed from head trauma,” the Saget family said on Wednesday. “They have 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.”
The 65-year-old was a prominent presence on American TV screens throughout the 1990s as the father Danny Tanner on Full House and the host of America’s Funniest Home Videos.
He was also the narrator on the show How I Met Your Mother from 2005 to 2014 and reprised the Danny Tanner role on the Netflix reboot Fuller House between 2016 and 2020. And Saget often played himself or a parody of himself in one-time or recurring roles in TV shows and movies.
The next day, Rizzo, 42, spoke out on social media and shared a touching Instagram tribute to her late husband.
“I’m trying, really trying, to not think I was robbed of time. But instead to think: How lucky was I that I got to be the one to be married to THE MOST INCREDIBLE MAN ON EARTH,” she wrote in part. “I was the one who got to go on this crazy ride with him and be in his life these last 6 years. We had that time to make each other the happiest we’d ever been and change each other’s lives forever.”
“We loved each other so damn much and told each other 500 times every day. Constantly,” she added. “I know how much he loved me until the very last moment and he knew the same. I’m so grateful for that.”
