We reported that legendary comedian and America’s “Dad”, Bob Saget died on January 9th, 2022. At the time, all that was known was that he had died and had been found in his hotel room after a performance in Jacksonville Florida the night before. Cops indicated no foul play and no signs of substance abuse were found in his room.
His family requested privacy, as per the norm. There were touching tributes and a funeral in the days that passed. We were told by both police and the family that the results from the autopsy could take any from 4 to 6 weeks on average, possibly up to 12 weeks due to being backlogged.
Possibly the saddest part of Bob’s death was his attitude about life. An addict in the past, he seemed to have rekindled his love for stand-up and was excited about the possibilities. Bob seemed to be fine, he even tweeted after the performance with a message that he was excited to keep performing his stand-up routines.
