The past few years have been marked by a heavy loss for many Americans, and the news of the death of a beloved celebrity has often made that loss even more acute. That was the case with the death of Betty White at the end of 2021, and now the new year has come with the death of Bob Saget, who died on Sunday at the age of 65.
“We are deeply saddened to confirm the passing of our beloved Bob today,” Saget’s family said in a statement, adding, “He was everything to us and we want you to know how much he loved his fans, performing live and bringing people from all walks of life with laughter. Although we ask for privacy. At this time, we invite you to join us in remembering the love and laughter that Bob brought into the world.”
