It’s been a difficult year for the Saget family, who lost their beloved patriarch to cancer last July. But John Stamos is doing his best to keep Bob Saget’s memory alive by posting photos and videos of the two of them on social media.
In the photo, Stamos can be seen leaning against Saget’s shoulder. He captioned the image: “One year since you left us. I miss you so much, Uncle Bob. Thank you for being such a big part of my life and always being there when I needed you most….. My rock, my brother, my mentor…. Will love you always and forever…. until we meet again..”
The two were close friends for decades before Saget’s death in January 2022 at age 65 from a head injury. He had kept his diagnosis private during his hospitalization last summer but wrote in a statement to People at the time that he was “not afraid of dying.”
John Stamos Reminisces Bob Saget
Stamos first met Saget 15 years ago while they were both working on Full House reboot Fuller House — which Stamos executive produces — and they quickly became close friends beyond the show set.
Saget was a comedian and actor who was best known for his role as Danny Tanner on the ABC sitcom Full House, which ran from 1987 to 1995. He also appeared in other TV shows such as The Comeback Kid, That ’70s Show, and Sons of Anarchy. Saget died at the age of 65. At the time of his death, many people were shocked by how quickly it had happened; Stamos described Saget’s condition as “horrible.”
Saget was born in New York City, New York on May 17th 1952 and began his career as an actor by appearing on several television shows including The Love Boat and The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Later he got his big break when he landed a role on Full House alongside John Stamos, Dave Coulier and Candace Cameron Bure.
During this time Bob Saget became known as Uncle Jesse until he left after season 8 of the show when he decided it was time to move onto new things like standup comedy tours where he performed at clubs all around America before returning as guest stars every now and then when they needed him back again
