PHILADELPHIA -- Actor and comedian Bob Saget is being remembered by his friends and costars in the Hollywood community.

Saget was found dead in Florida on Sunday at the age of 65.

The Philadelphia native was best known for playing the widowed father of three Danny Tanner on ABC's "Full House" from 1987 to 1995. He reprised his role in the Netflix spin-off "Fuller House" from 2016 to 2020.

Saget's costars on both shows reacted on social media to the star's death and shared fond memories of their friendships.

John Stamos

"I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby."

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

"Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man. We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us as he always has. We are thinking of his daughters, wife and family and are sending our condolences."

Dave Coulier

"My heart is broken. I love you, Bob. Your forever brother, Dave."

Candace Cameron Bure

"I don't know what to say Broken heart. I have no words. Bob was one of the best humans beings I've ever known in my life. I loved him so much."

Jodie Sweetin

"There aren't enough words to express what I'm feeling today. Nor are they big enough to capture even a slice of who he was. One thing I do know, is that we never missed a chance to tell each other, "I love you". Every time we talked, there were at least 3 or 4 exchanged at the end of a conversation, whether it was text, phone call or in person. And he usually had to have the last word, "I love you more..."

Andrea Barber

"This one hurts. He had the biggest heart of anyone in Hollywood. He gave the biggest hugs. I am gutted that I will never be able to hug him again. Bob ended every text, every interaction with "Love you." Didn't matter how long or short we'd been apart. He loved so deeply and so fiercely. And he never hesitated to tell you just how much you meant to him. This is the greatest lesson I learned from Bob Saget - don't hesitate to tell people you love them. I feel at peace knowing that Bob knew exactly how much I adore him.

Rest well, my dear friend. I have no doubt you are making everyone in Heaven laugh until their cheeks hurt, just as you did here on Earth."

Lori Loughlin

"Words cannot begin to express how devastated I am. Bob was more than my friend, he was my family. I will miss his kind heart and quick wit. Thank you for a lifetime of wonderful memories and laughter. I love you Bobby."

Scott Weinger

"Bob Saget was more than a friend. He was a big brother to me. Nobody ever made me laugh harder, the kind of laughter where your ribs are sore the next day. He was also a wonderful human being who never missed a chance to say "I love you" to the people he cared about. Bob was a passionate supporter of the Scleroderma Research Foundation, and fought hard to find a cure for the disease that took his sister. In his memory, please consider making a donation today."

John Brotherton

" His heart was abundantly full of love and kindness for others. Determined to make everyone smile and laugh and love a little more. He was truly the best.




Thank you for all the kind words of love and inspiration Bob You will be infinitely missed by all, forever. Rest in peace, love... and laughter..."

"Nov. 8 was the last day I saw Bob Saget. I was at the showing of my friend McKenna's movie, Ghostbusters. It was a chance meeting. He will always be my Grandpa Danny. Bob was the true patriarch of Fuller House. He was a warm and loving man. I will miss him a lot. I'm literally in shock. "

ABC Entertainment

"We are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of our friend and colleague, Bob Saget, who will always be a member of the ABC family.

Our thoughts are with his family as we mourn the passing of such an incredibly gifted comedian and talent."
