(Trends Wide) — Actor and comedian Bob Saget, who died Sunday at age 65, will be laid to rest later Friday, a source close to the Saget family told Trends Wide.
Private service and burial for close family and friends will be held at Mt. Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles. A public memorial will take place at a later date that has not yet been chosen, the source said.
Saget was found dead in a hotel room Sunday at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes, according to the sheriff’s office.
Saget was in Florida as part of his comedy tour. According to the tour dates posted on his Twitter account, he performed on Saturday night in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
The comedian and actor was best known to audiences as Danny Tanner on the sitcom “Full House.”
Saget, though known on stage and among his friends for his crude humor, first came to public attention on family programming. He played the widowed father of three girls on ABC’s “Full House” and later as host of the ABC clip show “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”
The sitcom, which starred Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and twins Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen in one role, ran for eight seasons. The series delivered such strong nostalgia that Netflix picked up a spinoff in 2016, “Fuller House,” starring Bure but with frequent appearances by original stars, including Saget, Dave Coulier and John Stamos. It ran for five seasons, concluding in 2020.
