From 1987 to 1995, Bob and Dave were two of America’s most cherished father figures on Full House, and they later reprised their roles in Fuller House from 2017 to 2020. Bob was discovered unresponsive in his room at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Orlando on January 9 and was pronounced dead at the spot. Bob was on a comedy tour at the time.
The comic was discovered by hotel security, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. They alerted emergency personnel, who arrived just after 4 p.m. eastern time. The cause of death has not been determined, but «detectives uncovered no signs of foul play or drug usage in this case,» according to the statement.
From Hollywood and beyond, there were immediate outpourings of shock and bewilderment. John Stamos, another Full House star, echoed Dave’s views regarding his longtime co-star. «I’m shattered. I’m devastated. I’m in a state of complete and total disbelief. There will never be another friend like him in my life. On the evening of January 9, John, who played Uncle Jesse in the series, tweeted, «I love you very much Bobby.»
Candace Cameron Bure, who played Bob’s daughter DJ in the 1990s sitcom, also took to Twitter to pay respect to her TV father after hearing the news. She wrote, «I don’t know what to say.» «I’m at a loss for words.» Bob was one of the most wonderful people I’ve ever known. I was madly in love with him.»
Kelly Rizzo, Bob’s wife whom he married in 2018, survives him. Jennifer, Aubrey, and Lara, his three daughters, are his pride and joy.
