Her actor cousin Parineeti remembered Bob as ‘the dad of our childhood’. She shared a picture of the late actor on her Instagram Stories and wrote, “The dad of the century. The dad of our childhood. RIP sir. You raised DJ, Steph, Michelle… and all of us too.”
Bob Saget was also known for being the wisecracking host of America’s Funniest Home Videos. He died at 65, while being on a stand-up tour. Deputies in Orange County, Florida, were called Sunday about an “unresponsive man” in a hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando and found Bob dead, according to a sheriff’s statement on Twitter. Detectives found “no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.”
