Kelly Rizzo, John Stamos Commemorate Bob Saget on His Birthday

TV Shows

Bob Saget would have turned 68 on Friday, and his loved ones are paying tribute to him.

First, his widow Kelly Rizzo shared a video of Saget’s previous birthday, in which they celebrated with smiles, cake, and fireworks candles, writing, “Forever celebrated, forever loved, forever remembered, forever in all of our hearts. Happy Birthday. Forever grateful for these memories, and this last birthday celebration together. Forever happy I got to see a smile on his face and happiness in his eyes. Look at how happy he was ❤️”

“I will tell you a cute story about this night. See the little band-aid on his arm? During dinner he got a mosquito bite and kept scratching it until it bled… so he went up to the front desk and like four different restaurant workers frantically got him a Band-Aid and they all put the Band-Aid on him as if they were performing surgery-and it caused such a scene- and he came back to the table with this little Band-Aid and we both laughed because it was so silly,” the tribute continued.

Plus, former costar John Stamos paid tribute to his late friend, who died in 2022, with an Instagram pic of the rare Full House cast reunion to include Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

In the black-and-white pic, Stamos and the Olsen twins pose for a photo alongside fellow Full House alums Jodie Sweetin, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure, and Scott Weinger, plus Full House creator Jeff Franklin. The gang huddles around a ride vehicle from the Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride (a piece of Disneyland memorabilia that Stamos apparently owns).

“Happy birthday, Bob,” the actor wrote in his Instagram caption. “This was taken as we gathered for his funeral. Though Bob wasn’t there physically, his spirit was unmistakably present, wrapping us in warmth and shared memories that drew both laughter and tears. That day, each of us felt the weight of his absence and the strength of the bond he nurtured among us.”

Stamos also called Saget the “heart” of the Full House family. “His legacy of kindness and compassion was evident in the faces around me, (on Dumbo) in the gentle ways we supported one another, echoing the love he always extended. We celebrated a life that was a true gift to us all. Bob, you are with us in every joke we share and every hug we give. Rest in peace, dear friend. Your family misses you more than words can say.”

In December, Stamos posted a pic of another Full House reunion, one from Saget’s lifetime. In that snapshot, Stamos, Saget, Sweetin, Coulier, Bure, and former costar Andrea Barber posed on the front steps of 1709 Broderick Street in San Francisco, known to fans of the 1990s ABC sitcom (and its 2010s Netflix reboot) as the exterior of the Tanner house.
