“If you don’t wake up every day happy, change something.” It was legendary actor and Amerca’s favorite dad Bob Saget who not only said these poignant words but truly lived by them. For decades, Saget made us laugh as Danny Tanner in Full House, as the host of the infamous Amerca’s Funniest Home Videos, and in any interview that would pop up on our YouTube. And everyone from Hollywood’s comedy titans to everyday fans were devastated when the news broke that the actor, comedian, and genuinely good guy unexpectedly passed away one year ago today, on Jan 9, 2022, at the age of 65.
When the news broke, Saget’s friends and fellow stars took to social media to express their shock and sadness — and to praise him. From former Full House stars Lori Loughlin and John Stamos to fellow comedy stars like Whoopi Goldberg, Gilbert Gottfried, and Pete Davidson, it seems like everyone had experienced Saget’s big heart and kind nature firsthand.
Despite his life being cut short, Saget achieved so much in the worlds of entertainment, and charity, as well as in his personal life.
To honor his legacy, one year after he passed, let’s see photos of Bob Saget’s life below.
