    Holy shit. Loved him in Full House, loved him in How I Met Your Mother, loved his surprisingly raunch stand up comedy. I never feel anything when celebrities die. That seems to be an exception. I guess I just loved the guy. To me he's like the soul of the 90s.

    Bob Saget Apparently Died in His Sleep Without Suffering
    so you don't have to visit TMZ \/

    Sources familiar with the investigation tell TMZ ... Bob was "tucked in bed" when his body was discovered Sunday at around 4 PM ET. As we reported, the lights were off in his room at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Orlando.

    We're told Bob had called his wife before going to bed and also tweeted how happy he was to be back on stage.

    We're told as the day wore on, from morning to afternoon, his wife became concerned because Bob was supposed to be on a flight returning to L.A., and when she couldn't reach him she called the hotel. That's when security entered his room and discovered his body.

    As we reported, although the official cause of death won't be known for 10 to 12 weeks, the operating theory is that he suffered either a stroke or a heart attack.

    He had just gotten over COVID, we're told, but people close to him say he seemed fine in the days before he died.

    The article makes it sound like it could be suicide but he was in the middle of a tour so it seems somewhat unlikely: https://twitter.com/bobsaget
