Bob Saget’s longtime “Full House” co-star John Stamos was the first cast member to publicly comment on the actor’s unexpected death at age 65.
Stamos played Jesse Katsopolis opposite Saget’s Danny Tanner for close to 200 episodes on the 1990s sitcom between 1987 and 1995. Shortly after the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Orlando, Florida confirmed the news of Saget’s death, the 58-year-old actor took to Twitter to share that he is “gutted” by the news that one of his best friends had died so suddenly.
“I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him,” Stamos wrote Sunday. “I love you so much Bobby.”

“Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room. The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case,” reads a tweet from law enforcement.
A spokesperson for the sheriff’s office told Fox News Digital that deputies responded to a call at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando just after 4 p.m and found Saget unresponsive in a hotel room, and was pronounced dead on the scene. The Orange County Fire Rescue Department also responded to the call.

No cause of death was immediately available. A spokesperson for the police said that the Medical Examiner’s Office will determine that at a later date.
Saget rose to fame thanks to his role opposite Stamos and Dave Coulier in “Full House,” where he played a widowed father of three young daughters who asks his brother-in-law and best friend to move into their house in San Francisco to help him raise the children without their mom present. The show was a massive success and remained popular decades after its conclusion.
