Bob’s private funeral was held in Los Angeles just five days after the actor was found dead in his Florida hotel room.

During the service, Kelly found a way to keep Bob close to her heart by wearing his wedding ring around his neck.

In photos from the funeral, the 42-year-old was seen wearing a gold chain with her late husband’s wedding ring.

Kelly – who married Bob in 2018 – attended the funeral alongside her husband-to-be’s close friends and former co-stars.


Some of the familiar faces in attendance included Bob’s Full House co-stars John Stamos, Candace Cameron, Jodie Sweetin and Lori Loughlin.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who starred as Michelle Tanner on the beloved sitcom, also made a rare public appearance.

Comedian Mike Binder, singer John Mayer, comedians Jeffrey Ross, Judd Apatow, Marc Maron, Jimmy Kimmel, Dave Chappelle, Kathy Griffin, Chris Rock and Seth Green were also among the distinguished guests who attended the service.

According to a source, Kelly gave an emotional speech full of laughter calling Bob “Batman” and describing her late husband as her hero during the service.

The Eat Travel Rock TV host also said she was honored to be Bob’s wife and that he was her biggest food critic but her biggest supporter, the insider revealed.

“She also joked that he didn’t know exactly what she was doing for a living, she was very quiet and made the mourners laugh, but burst into tears towards the end as she expressed her love for Bob,” the source said.

Paul Pressler, former president of Walt Disney Attractions, also spoke at the service, while Bob’s daughters with ex-wife Sherri Kramer took to the podium to praise their beloved father at the Jewish service. .

Earlier Friday, loved ones invaded the home Bob and Kelly shared in Brentwood before his death.


The sheriff’s department and fire department responded to the comedian’s hotel in Orlando around 4 p.m. on Jan. 9 after Bob was found in his room by hotel security.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and is believed to have died of a suspected heart attack.

The death of the star was confirmed by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

“Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call regarding an unresponsive man in a hotel room,” the office tweeted at the time.

They added: “The man was identified as Robert Saget and pronounced dead at the scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.”


Bob’s family later shared a statement to Us Weekly, saying: “We are devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob passed away today.

“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 together with laughter.”

Bob shared twin daughters Aubrey and Lara Melanie, born in 1987, and daughter Jennifer Belle, born in 1992, with his first wife and high school girlfriend, Sherri Kramer.

The former couple divorced in 1997.

Bob had been touring the country at the time of his sudden passing, with his most recent shows being in Florida.

He was doing a show in Jacksonville on Saturday night, staying until the early hours of Sunday morning.


Following his passing, a source exclusively told The Sun: “Bob had been in good spirits the days before, playing sold-out comedies in Florida.

“You can see on his Instagram posts after the show how much fun he had on stage and how excited he was to be back on the comedy tour circuit.”

The insider went on to explain how Kelly is “so grateful and humbled by all the support, the media tributes, the fan response, and the messages from close friends and family.”

The source added: “She is still numb as it happened less than 24 hours ago so she needs time to process this and will speak out when she has had time to properly grieve. .

“It’s really devastating.”
