The Full House cast paid tribute to Bob Saget as family, friends, fans and co-workers attended the funeral of the late star.
American actor and comedian Bob passed away sound asleep last weekend at age 65, Hollywood and fans were left in shock – while a full coroner’s report explaining the exact cause of his death has yet to be released.
Bob’s family was joined on Friday by a cast of celebrities as his loved ones flocked to pay their respects as he was laid to rest in a cemetery at Mt. Sinai in Hollywood Hills.
Reports initially stated that a smaller number of 50 people were expected to attend the service, but reports later confirmed that “at least 300” had said goodbye to the star.
Among those pictured who attended were members of Bob’s Full House cast – with John Stamos playing Jesse Katsopolis, Jodie Sweetin playing Stephanie Tanner, and Candace Cameron playing DJ Tanner.
Comedians Dave Chappelle, Kathy Griffin, Jeff Ross and Chris Rock were also spotted at the ceremony, while actor Seth Green was also present at the ceremony.
TMZ reports: “Today we were told that the service would be small – about 50 people – but it turned out to be much bigger. At least 300 people were there to show their respect.”
On Thursday, 58-year-old John wrote a heartbreaking post dedicated to his late teammate.

The actor wrote on Twitter : “Mornings are hard. Waves come in the middle of the day. Mostly bad. The night is hard.
“I miss getting a message from him right now. I’m responding. He says he’s too tired to answer. I say, ‘Then why did you send me a message so early?'”
John also wrote online before Bob’s funeral, “Today will be the hardest day of my life.
“God, give me the serenity to accept things I can’t change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
John – who worked with Bob on Full House between 1987 and 1995 – previously paid tribute to actor Danny Tanner on Instagram.
He wrote: “I’m not ready to accept that he’s gone – I won’t say goodbye yet.”
“I’ll imagine him out there, still on his way to do what he loves with all his heart and humor.”
He added: “He stands on stage and kills! Another two-hour set in front of a few hundred of the happiest people on the planet. So laughing, crying.”
Bob was found dead last Sunday in a hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Orlando after performing at the Ponte Vedra concert hall the night before.

Before going to bed, he allegedly called his wife and said on Twitter how happy he was to be back live on stage.
The next day, Bob’s wife became anxious when he was not available last Sunday morning or afternoon – hotel security opened the door to his room and found he was unresponsive in bed.
He was married to journalist Kelly Rizzo and survived by three daughters, whom he shared with his ex-wife Sherri Kramer, with whom he was married between 1982 and 1997.
